Between that and Meyer telling you you're the next Percy Harvin, you have some difficult decisions to make.
Mikey D also said he could see me as a Spartan, something about a great reputation of recruiting nationally.

If all this is true, then David Dawson clearly does not understand what it means to be "committed" to something.

Hopefully he commits to Florida then calls up 'Bama or something.
Damn, that's pretty low.
Well, he's Florida's headache now.
This is why they just ended it completely IMO. He told the coaches he was over the UF thing, but was scheduling visits behind their backs... yeah not gonna fly.
If he was upfront and told them that he was going to visit, I think it may have gone differently. Obviously he wouldn't have been considered committed any longer, but they might have stayed in contact with him
Yeah, if a kid does something like this, he really doesn't understand the concept of commitment. I'd tell him that we'd get back to him if we had an extra scholarship on NSD, but not until then.
Actually its called Denard Robinson
From film I have seen, Ira Denson is the best guard in this years class....not to say that Dawson is bad, but other sites have him ranked as such. Denson is a future 1st rounder I feel.
I agree. I don't know why people are bashing you. He knew for a long time. his tweets from a week ago
David Dawson @D3_FutureLegend
That Florida offensive line was dominate! S/o to Coach Davis
David Dawson @D3_FutureLegend
Gators had a great game!
What was the exchange with him and Bosch?
Great question, maybe the competition got to him.
I can't find it now, but he was complaining about not getting enough recognition from Michigan fans/commits at the Opening, and Bosch called him out on his whiny BS.
These recruits are still kids, and though Dawson was boneheaded, I could understand his desire to take visits. I also understand the Michigan coaches' recruiting policy. People should expect the occasional wandering eye by a 17 year old. The team may have taken a recruiting hit, but it is not like this is out of the ordinary for a recruiting cycle, which is never over until signing day. Regardless, in my opinion, I don't think Dawson could do better than Michigan (obviously...I have a heavy bias) so he really only hurt himself.
You've got a good point. Is there any particular reason that most of us are taking GibbonsGator's "story" as gospel? I'm not saying it's not true. I have no idea. I'm just asking why very few are questioning its veracity. I know it does a lot to explain why our coaches would pull the scholly, but even GibbonsGator in his post refered to this explanation as "the story from our end."
scout is reporting the same story as well. looks like dawson was going behind the coaches back, trying to play them

Thanks for the info!
His head coach Wilcher didn't seem to happy about the way Dawson handled it either. He said something along the lines of a commitment is something to be honored and hopes Dawson can learn from this.
It's been reported that he actually tried to re-commit after the whole thing went down.
Some kids need to learn the hard way.

Wish the coaches would have let him back in if he tried. Didn't actually take any visits and might really want to be a Wolverine and just wanted a free trip to Florida.
Maybe if David doesn't commit to anyone before signing day and we have room available we call him back up and take him back if he wants to?

No. and No.
He lied to the coaches and went behind their backs. He's done.
I agree with this if things really are as portrayed. It's hard to foster a family environment with someone you don't trust in the fold.
Having said that, I must admit that I still have some doubts about the story. There seems to be such a tight lid on what coaches can say about recruits. I find it somewhat hard to believe that something this damaging came out in such a way that it was verifiable.
