BOTHELL, Wash. - Of all the participants that put in hard work during the Barton Football 2011 Washington Marketing Workout, Kahlil Dawson may have has as big a day as anyone. For the 5-foot-9, 153-pound sophomore from Graham-Kapowsin, making big plays despite his diminutive stature is his calling card.

Even though he was an honorable mention All-SPSL pick as a slot receiver, Dawson told Scout.com Saturday at Pop Keeney Stadium that he expects to play defense at the next level.

We were in no mood to argue, as Dawson came up with at least a couple picks during the one-on-one sessions, and looked the part of an impact cornerback.

"I liked it, it felt really good," Dawson said of the workout, the first time he'd been exposed to that style of recruiting camp. "I only gave up a couple of catches, so it was good. I really liked the energy."

Dawson, who said he grew up a fan of both the in-state Pac-10 schools - Washington and Washington State - has already been receiving recruiting mail and questionnaires from schools like Oregon State, UCLA, Washington State and Boise State. He's looking to capitalize on his positive Barton experience by taking on the region's best at the Jason Gesser Northwest Elite Football Camp June 10th at Skyline High School.

Dawson also said that he plans on attending Washington's Rising Stars camp.
