Recruiting: Dawson was a long-time commitment to Memphis, but it came down to Georgia and Ole Miss. After taking an official visit to Ole Miss this past weekend, he talked with his family, and decided to commit to UGA on Monday night.
Scouting Report: Dawson is a football player, a very tough football player. He loves to compete and he may get a chance to play on both sides of the ball in Athens. His primary position will be corner and he could be a good one there. He has quick feet, he is not scared to play physical, he can flip his hips, and he has very good ball skills. His change of direction is very good as well and he can run with those wideouts also. He still has some things to work on, like his back pedal, his ability to read receivers, and just his overall technique at corner. Running back comes a little more natural to him, but he has most upside on the defensive side of the ball. You have to like his toughness and his aggressive style of play.
