Sheldon Dawson’s Decision A ‘Close Call’

Athlete Sheldon Dawson from Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway High School plans to choose between Georgia and Ole Miss.

Dawson, who will likely announce his decision on Wednesday, took an official visit to Ole Miss this weekend.

“It’s still between Ole Miss and Georgia,” Dawson told 247Sports. “I’ll sit down with my family tonight. It’s a close call.”

Dawson’s coach at Ridgeway, Duron Sutton, predicted last week that Dawson would choose Georgia.

“I think (Georgia) is where he’s going,” Dutton said.

Dutton also said his belief was that Dawson had already informed Georgia’s coaches that he would sign with the Bulldogs. Dawson denied giving a commitment and maintained he was still considering Georgia and Ole Miss.

Dawson originally committed to Memphis but decided to look at other schools when coach Larry Porter was fired in November.

Memphis Commit Dawson Could Look Elsewhere

Sheldon Dawson is still committed to Memphis, but the athlete from Memphis (Tenn.) Ridgeway High School could look elsewhere.

The Tigers fired coach Larry Porter during the weekend. Dawson, who cited Porter as a main reason for choosing Memphis, told he isn’t sure how the move will affect his college decision.

“It’s just business and it’s how it goes I guess,” Dawson told the website. “I don’t really know what I’m going to do right now. It was a surprise to me.”

Dawson told 247Sports that Tennessee, Georgia, Cincinnati and Vanderbilt have been recruiting him the hardest. He still plans to take all five official visits permitted by the NCAA.

Dawson is considered the No. 9 athlete in the nation and No. 1 prospect in the state of Tennessee by 247Sports.
