Offensive lineman David Dawson from Cass Tech High School in Detroit took a visit to Florida last weekend to watch the Gators defeat South Carolina 44-11.
Florida made a nice impression on the former Michigan commitment, but he’s not close to choosing a school. Alabama, LSU, Michigan State and Ohio State are all still in the running.
After taking a long trip this past weekend, it appears distance from home will at least be a factor in his final decision.
“I enjoyed the (Florida) trip, but I wouldn’t count out Michigan State and Ohio State,” Dawson told ESPN RecruitingNation. “Michigan State could pull ahead when I visit.”
Dawson told ESPN he plans to visit Michigan State on Nov. 3, Ohio State on Nov. 24 and Alabama sometime in December.
Dawson is ranked the nation’s No. 1 offensive guard by ESPN.
