One thing that Pearson has worked on this offseason is improving as a run-stopper.
"I needed to get stronger and that's what I've worked on the most, but I've also been working on my technique and my hands and stuff and that should help me this fall," Pearson noted.
As far as recruiting is concerned, no offers have been forthcoming, but he has been hearing from quite a few BCS programs including Arizona, Miami, Minnesota, Texas Tech and Kansas among other FBS programs.
"They all want to see me this fall and see that I've recovered and they probably also want to see how my academics are coming along," Pearson said.
He is on pace to graduate in May, but there is an outside shot at him finishing things up in December and he will have three years to play three following the 2014 football season.
