Yeah, I was not sure what to make of that. He went on and on (and on) about tragedies in his life, grief counseling, being injured, etc. Not doubting its authenticity, only Wilcher's decision to air it out in the media.....although Sam Webb is a UM mouthpiece so Wilcher may have felt compelled to give him more info.
I also think that Dawson's current challenges, whatever they may be, would make MSU an even better fit given MSU's strong emphasis on family, support and loyalty. Its the opposite of OSU, where you have "inner circle" favorites of the coach vs. other guys.
Then they thought wrong.
We recruited campbell and mathis too.
The fact that we all aid Sam Webb in his quest to keep up the charade that he's an actual journalist is embarassing in itself. Nothing but a um cheerleader. I'll quietly hit the "ignore" button on anything from that guy.
Guys, let's keep this on Dawson-specific updates. Save the general Cass Tech banter for the 2013 thread.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Dawson is being recruited as a OG right, not OT?
Just a mauler.
OL #55 David Dawson from Detroit Cass Tech 2013, Highlights from the 2010 Sophomore season.

He's a dog, he's a dog, he's a dog!!
2. David Dawson, OG, Detroit (Mi.) Cass Technical
The 6-foot-4, 290-pound Dawson has gone from a Michigan commitment, to now favoring in-state Michigan State with a number of traditional powers trying pull the upset and pry the Top247 prospect out of the Midwest region.
National Analyst Steve Wiltfong on Dawson’s recruitment: “The former Michigan commit will likely see the Wolverines once a year on the next level as his top three currently consists of Michigan State, Ohio State and Wisconsin. Dawson would like to be in East Lansing this weekend for the Nebraska game, Madison on Nov. 17 for the Ohio State game and Columbus on Nov. 24 for the Michigan game. Those programs could know more about where they stand after Thanksgiving. Alabama, Florida, LSU, UCLA and USC are other schools Dawson has mentioned but staying closer to home is important here. Dawson has two teammates currently committed to Michigan State so the Spartans could have the slight edge but this one is too close to call at this point.”
With the presidential election less than a week away, we offer a political spin on recruits that various programs have to have. Today, we look at the Midwest.

Close the deal with Dawson, and cap off a wonderful '13 class.
+1 Good Post
Did Dawson make it, was he in SS today?

Finley and at least three other Cass Tech kids were sitting next to each other. Personally didnt see Dawson but w a crew of buddies looks like CT made it to the house.

Cool, Buckeyes fans are invading his twitter feed right now though. I thought that was a recruiting violation
Now with a PhD in Applied Llama Physics...
Buckeye fans are just like their ex coach and current coach.
Haha, well wish we had some more Spartans tweeting then. I don't have a twitter account. A couple of them are taking shots at our program too.

Lol, they were given an extra recruiting staff to pull Pittman away while on probation. A little concerned that OSU fans are given free reign by Delaney to tweet him all day about their program too.
I come in peace because I'm wondering how is visit went? Dude been tweeting a lot of pro-Osu stuff and has followed and requested a follow back from Osu commitments. What's going on with him?
He probably just wants to get to know them before his visit there, so he'll know some of the kids he's gonna be sitting with. i'm sure a bunch of your commits are going to be there for the Michigan game. He did the same with MSU commits before this game.

The top might change soon.. #staytuned
Getting the feeling this kid is going to be pretty tough to pull. Seems to me he loves the attention and will drag this on for a while. Would love to get him, but it could be a while.
If he's not in the fold by Jan. 1 I won't be very optimistic. Just have to take him for his word when he's said he'd like to stay reasonably close to home and there's only a few big time programs around that would qualify for him.
He said Ohio State is close enough to home too.
