With National Signing Day approaching, college football programs are already trying to get a jump on next year’s class. With that in mind, it’s little surprise that coaches are evaluating, and showing interest, in Countryside junior OT Tyler Pierson. Central Florida, North Carolina and USF are among those that have stopped by the school to get a peek at the 6-foot-5, 275-pounder, who started for arguably the area’s best offensive line last fall.  According to Pierson’s father, the standout hopes to add more size during the offseason and attend several camps/combines for both exposure and experience.
