That it would be. Those two next to eachother at OG and LT, give me a friggin' break. You could run that way all day.
The fact that Florida already has two OGs and that he scheduled the visit here AFTER he visited his favorite team are both really good for us. It's still a bit of a long-shot but with two teammates in his ear, who knows?
Now with a PhD in Applied Llama Physics...
Kind of what I was thinking. He's been leaning Florida since July of last year. the uf talk flared again over the summer and it looked like their staff had it nipped. They've been hanging around for a year on it and I wouldn't be surprised if he ended up there but I just think we've got at the very least, an outside shot.
either that or he just wants to piss of the UM staff
This. The about face in his tweets from his commitment to de-commitment and the weeks following have really been telling.
Don't care why he is in play. I just hope that, if we offer and ultimately sign him, he continues to develop so he can someday be a factor on the OL at MSU.
I think the latter is what's in play here. In regards to us and OSU. I hope I am wrong but that is how I see it right now.
Quote in an ESPN article from Dawson,
"I rushed myself into a bad situation at Michigan earlier this year by not weighing my options, so I didn't want to make the same mistake," he said. "I want to look at a few other schools close to home, and that might play a factor in the long run. That's mainly because of all the things my family has been through in the last year, so I feel that maybe I should try to stay close to my support system."
Take that for what it is worth.
It seems strange that, out of the teams he's most interested in, MSU is only one which hasn't offered. He has a very impressive offer list, so I'm curious as to what's holding our coaches back.
I know we are recruiting him as an OG, does he project as an OT as well if needed?
It is probably that he committed very early and was a Blue lean so we never offered him, the conversation probably had some type of statement "If you visit, we have an offer for you..." or its just not reported clearly yet. Perhaps they did extend an open offer we just don't know about it yet, this has all been very fast developing.
If he called and said he wanted to commit he could, we other we offered him or not..
He's a priority recruit and Dantonio wants to offer him in person.
laconophilia is everywhere...
yep. was told early on that an offer is waiting for him once he gets on campus.

Well now isn't THAT interesting . . .
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
No doubt,I don't see how that can be anything but a big positive for us in his recruitment. I don't think you can overstate the importance of having one of his fellow OL coming here,OL tend to be a tight knit unit and the prospect of playing close to home and manning one side of the line with your buddy has to be enticing.
His hate for michigan just makes me like the kid already.
This is even more interesting IMO.

That was a great game, who won between #Florida and #Georgia ?
Seems like if a team was your favorite, you would watch them in a top ten matchup. Instead he's watching MSU.
I hope the RCR is accurate and he would like to stay home. I would love to see this guy in green (and not at OSU) with at least 2 other CT teammates.

heard on another site that he is down to O$U and MSU according to Dawson himself
At MSU he certainly would have the opportunity to play early. I can only imagine how fired up this kid would be MSU/UM weekend.
F-OSU and Urban.
Adding Dawson to the young talent on offense would just be sick.
Stud Qb... Check
Rb... Speed and power with Holmes, Tompkins and Shelton
WR- we got Drake coming in 14. Lots of young talent.
OL- Finley is a boss. Give us Dawson next to him and we can do whatever we want.
