Former Michigan Commit Interested In SEC Schools

Offensive lineman David Dawson is no longer committed to Michigan and plans to visit a few schools in the SEC.

Dawson, who attends Cass Technical High School in Detroit, told ESPN RecruitingNation he plans to visit Florida this weekend to watch the Gators play South Carolina.

“I’m also interested in LSU and Alabama,” Dawson said. “I don’t know when I’ll visit there though.”

It’s the plan to visit other schools that led to the end of Dawson’s commitment to Michigan. Wolverines head coach Brady Hoke has a policy stating he won’t continue to recruit committed players if they decide to visit elsewhere.

Dawson had thought of looking elsewhere for some time.

“I wasn’t 100 percent sure, and I didn’t want to go any longer hurting myself or the University of Michigan,” he said. “I talked to my mom and coaches and they gave me the OK to do what I felt was best. I thank Coach Hoke for giving me the opportunity, but it was something I had to do.”
