    Yet Dawson had not visited anyone when he mutually "decommitted." He informed Michigan he was going to visit Florida that weekend and they pulled his offer.

    Nice spin though.

    Rivals$--Conley schedules two official visits

    Gareon will visit tOSU and then Michigan. His in-home with Coach Meyer went very well and he is comfortable with both coaching staffs.

    Scouting Ohio lists his speed at 4.5, which sounds good to me. :io:
  7. youra6

    youra6 It's not over 9000

    With some additional training, conditioning he might be able to shave that 4.5 to a 4.45 or faster.

    As long as he can cover wrs and wrap up tackle in space. I don't even care about his 40 times if he can do both

    He's still probably growing. At 170 lbs, he will need to bulk up another 20-25 lbs of muscle to be able to take down larger receivers.

    Idk if he needs to get that big. I'd say 10-15lbs and he'd be fine. Most of the top cbs in cfb are under 200, and closer to 190. His first year, I'd be fine with him being around 180, losing little speed and gaining more fundamentals in the tackling game, which all our dbs need. No more shoulder and arm tackles, let's start wrapping up.

    I would agree, but he is also tall for a CB at 6'2" Proportionally speaking, 170 is very light for a guy that tall. Winfield is only 5'9"

    Very valid point, I forgot to take into account his height. At 6'2'' he can definitely put on 20-25lbs then. Xavier Rhodes for Florida st is 6'2'' and plays around 210-215. Conley doesn't need to get that big, but playing at 200-205 would be great

    I don't get the title of that article. "May be wavering?" Didn't he already decommit?
