After playing the past few years in Lee’s Summit (Mo.), linebacker Jaycie Pearson is now playing in Southern California, having moved and enrolled at Corona (Calif.) Centennial.

His father, J.C. played for several years for the Kansas City Chiefs, and the family stayed there as his dad did color analysis for Conference USA football games.

But with his father’s roots in Southern California, the family moved to SoCal and now Pearson will play his senior year at one of the top programs in the region, Centennial.

“It’s been real good there so far, and it’s been fun,” said Pearson. “There is a lot more interest in me being there. I’ve gone to USC’s Junior Day and Arizona State’s Junior Day and I’m going to visit UCLA this spring.

Another school on the radar for Pearson is Washington, where his father played for legendary coach Don James.

“I’m open to anyone, anywhere, but I’m really starting to like the Pac-12 schools,” said Pearson. “I want to go to camp at Oregon and I’m hearing a lot from Arizona State. I liked it down there.”

The 6-1, 215-pound Pearson plays inside and said he’d prefer to play there in college as well.

Academically, Pearson is doing well with a 3.1 GPA and plans to take the SAT in May.

Brandon is in his eighth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
