Florida never stopped recruiting him, if that's what you're asking.
Florida has been on Dawson for awhile now. They have had a lot of interest from some talented OG ( Ira Denson fsu soft commit) but have yet to offer even after a few visits due to the fact the contact they have kept with Dawson. DD has talked about wanting to visit UF since the opening in the summer and its been an ongoing stuggle between him and the UM staff. Just a week ago when Conely was gonna visit cincy DD tweeted "If this visit happens i'm gonna be pissed." That was pretty much icing on the cake. Mutual Departure or decommit doesn't matter end result UM is losing a nasty OG in DD. He also has interest in LSU and Bama. He is set to visit UF this weekend, wouldn't be suprised if he is committed by next week this time.
written all over him.
Rivals$--Dawson lays out his new plan
David says he will take a few visits and is most interested in Ohio State, Florida, Alabama, LSU with possible interest in Tennessee, UCLA and USC.
BN$--Dawson Discusses Top Four, Visits
David is excited about visiting Florida this weekend and also seeing The Game in November.
Agree with Smudger....just didn't want to quote that big Gator picture.
He's been a Gator for awhile now.
We can always hope, mom and dad don't want him that far from home.
DD has had a rough year. He lost his grandmother and his father within a few months apart over the summer. He also said in an article that he wants to play in the $ec so he can play against top talent week in and week out to prepare for the next level.
Someone needs to remind him that the $EC doesn't have top talent across the conference despite what E$PiN says, and that B1G teams like Ohio State will continue to get players drafted very highly...
I admire your determination, but while Vandy doesn't have 5 star DL that conference does lead in terms of top DL talent against which he would play.
Our hate for the SEC-hype machine ESPIN aside, the SEC has the lead by a very wide margin for the most D-line players in the NFL. Do you remember Urban's quote when Hill, the DT from South Carolina, committed to OSU? .... "Hot dog, I got an SEC lineman in the Big Ten." That says a lot.
I'd love to get DD to come to OSU, but I can't find fault with his logic. Maybe just tell him we have SEC d-lineman against which he'd practice everyday.
I think you need to quit watching ESPN...seriously. In case you didn't notice, UFM's quote was tongue-in-cheek, and in fact he gets annoyed when asked about the B1G needing "SEC talent". Dawson is not going to face "top talent week in and week out" in the SEC.
I used to have these statistics saved on a .txt on my desktop, as I way too often found myself arguing with SEC fans about their conference's supposed domination of football since 1890. Unfortunately, I do not have them anymore. However, Ohio State has the 2nd most NFL players drafted in the past decade, as well as the 3rd most all time. The BIG had 41 players drafted last year to 42 from the SEC. SEC teams on average produced 1.5 more NFL players a year than BIG teams - considering SEC teams oversign an average of 6-7 more players a year than BIG teams, this seems to be common sense.
The SEC is currently the top dog, no doubt, but ESPN's bull[Mark May] about there being such a vast chasm between them and every other conference is Fox news worthy. People forget that Alabama squeaked by Texas the first time, and only because McCoy got hurt; LSU lost to a Penn State lead by a brain dead, incomprehensible zombie-human; and until last year the BIG led the SEC in head to head bowl matchups.
Anyways, back to David. I wish him luck in the SEC.
Dawson also has interest in Alabama and LSU and said his desire to play in the SEC is what drove him to part ways with the Wolverines.
?It was nothing against them,? said Dawson, who is from Cass Tech in Detroit, Mich. ?I just want to be in the SEC because I know I?ll be facing the best defensive linemen in the country every week, and that?s going to prepare me well for the NFL.?
I understand that, Einstein...thus my post. Obviously his still being a kid (albeit a very large kid) has him eating up the ESPN drivel.
