Pearson was about 6'3" 215lbs at the end of his Sophomore year. Even at the size and age he held his own against 5 star DT Abry Jones of Northside WR High School in the State Quarterfinals.
Fast forward two years, Pearson is now at Pepperell High School and just recently measured at 6'5" and 234 lbs.
What schools have you been hearing from and what schools have came by to see you this spring?
Drew Pearson" Middle Tennessee State called me last week and came by my school and invited to their camp. I went to their Junior day up there. Air Force, UTC have also came by. I have been getting alot of letters from a ton of schools. Tennessee just sent me a handwritten letter and invited me to their lineman camp."
How is your spring practice going?
Pearson-"It is going really good and I am excited. Our Offense and Defensive lines are really going to be good. We only had to replace one starter on offensive line. We have some young guys that are stepping up in the secondary.
Now that you have been at Pepperell a year now, are you feeling at home now?
Pearson-" Yes Sir it has always been good since I have been here. There were some other players that weren't so happy I was there,but it was all good in the end. I am Senior now and this is our last shot. I am just trying to do my job the best I can to help this team."
Rusty's Final Word- Pepperell will have to replace some key linebackers and a running back that gained over 2.400 yds in Brandon Whitaker. Make no mistake that Pepperell is LOADED on the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball and it all starts with Drew Pearson.
