Cleveland Heights, Ohio safety Kory Pearson is upping his game.
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound safety was one of the standouts at a loaded Ohio State Friday Night Lights Camp last week in Columbus. His performance caught the attention of everyone in attendance, including the Ohio State staff.
"They told me I had great hips and I was quick off the ball," Pearson said. "I talked to Coach [Stan] Drayton and he told me he'd come see me play during the course of the season."
Camp appearances at Kentucky, Cincinnati and Michigan State earlier this summer also generated similar interest from those staffs.
"The Michigan State coach said he would be coming down to see me play during the course of the season," Pearson said. "The Cincinnati coach and the Kentucky coach said they would be coming down during the season as well."
Akron has already extended an offer to Pearson, and he feels Bowling Green is close to doing the same. Minnesota is another school he has had positive feedback from in recent months.
"I have been talking to the Minnesota coach [Jim Zebrowski] a lot and they'll probably offer me over the course of the season," Pearson said. "My teammate, De'Niro Laster, goes there but I haven't been down there for a visit yet."
Pearson plays safety and wide receiver for Cleveland Heights, but said most schools see him on the defensive side of the football.
