Pearson’s announcement came just over an hour after former Red Raiders teammate Philip Blidi posted his offer via twitter. Pearson, a senior, will likely have one year of eligibility remaining after spending two years at Wisconsin prior to his pair of seasons at Texas Tech.
The offer from West Virginia was Pearson’s third since confirming his movement into the transfer portal, and his fourth overall. His others include Mississippi State, Michigan State and Arkansas.
This season, Pearson is tied for fifth on the Red Raiders with 55 tackles, He is also tied for the team lead with two interceptions, while recording four passes defended and a fumble recovery in 12 games played. Pearson tallied four tackles in the Red Raiders’ 48-10 win over West Virginia on Oct. 22.
As of Wednesday, Pearson is not listed on the Texas Tech roster, meaning he will likely not be playing for the Red Raiders in the TaxAct Texas Bowl against Mississippi on Dec. 28.
