Pearson is a very smart football player and his headsup play caught our eye when they went up against Roswell at the Corky Kell. He has a great feel for the game, reads the QB’s eyes and in a lot of cases he breaks off his receiver or area in the zone to defend the pass. He uses his hands well, jams the receiver and uses his guide hand to track the receiver while getting his head around the ball. At the next level he looks more like a free safety to us, but more senior film could change that idea.

    Pearson is a Swiss army knife player that plays convincingly on both sides of the ball. He is a get up in your face shadow corner that plays his hands well at the yard of scrimmage against WR opponents. Very good tackler and defends the flat well on completed passes less than 10 yards. Opposing coaches respects his offensive attack at the WR position and must be accounted for in defensive coverage. He stands out on the field when engaging the route tree at mid field attacking the red zone. He is tactful in his approach to the game. Good blend of football IQ and athleticism. The top 5 FCS colleges should have this player on their recruiting depth chart for certain.
