James Pearce was ranked by On3 Sports as five-star and the No. 11 recruit in the Class of 2022 and the second-ranked EDGE prospect coming out of Charlotte Chambers School. He played in all 13 games as a true freshman for Tennessee, accumulating five tackles, two tackles for loss and a pair of sacks. He emerged in his sophomore season as one of the SEC's top pass rushers. Pearce earned SEC Defensive Lineman of the Week honors after a dominant performance vs. South Carolina. He registered three tackles, two tackles for loss, two sacks and two QB hurries against the Gamecocks. During his senior season at Chambers, Pearce had 14.5 sacks and two interceptions. He was coached by Glenwood Ferebee, a former player at Liberty and offensive coordinator at Howard.
