Check out the post on Dawson on the Michigan board. They're not happy that this has turned into an MSU/OSU battle so quickly after he decommitted. There's also a post that's copy/pasted from Dawson's twitter telling the soft commit, Gareon Conley to make his own mind and not have Hoke make it for him. Gotta love this sort of drama.
...now says staying close to home is an important factor in his decision.
Whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.
Its simple, if you make people make a decision too early and then offer them no way to prove to themselves that it was the right one when they are doubting it, they will change their minds.
I hope Hoke keeps this policy. It will only lead to trouble for scUM.
I am banned from their board until the beginning of 2018 for suggesting that Hoke looks like Fred Flintstone and can't read posts. Can you copy and paste here?
They are doing something that they claim they never do: trash the kid.

Doesn't Meyer have the same rule about committed recruits visiting other programs?
This is right. They are calling this kid a 'back up' plan and immature for wanting to take visits. Hoke's rule is really stupid and obtuse. He wants kids committing in the midst of their Junior year or earlier and then tells them that they are 'locked in' to Meatchicken or the offer is pulled.
Early on I thought Dawson was an awful offer even thought meatchicken fans were calling him underrated and 'under the radar'. He began camping and looked really good (better than LTT or Fox for sure). He began climbing the boards. Before he left the class, I thought he was a very good true guard compared to the G/T combo guys like Bosch and Fox.
Here is a little trick. Log out of your account and then go to the Michigan board. You should be able to read it then. I'm banned from the Cinci board [ I have no idea why ] and it works for me.
There's a few posts on there about how kids are so immature for decommitting, or "lacking something between the ears", or are not wanted due to the way they respond to comments of displeasure for the particular recruit leaving the program........
To borrow from one of their posters.....WHISKEY TANGO FOXTROT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
When Kalis decommitted from OSU to go to _icigan, they singing praises on how smart this kid must be. Then he made comments about how there'd "be blood on the field when we play Ohio, and it won't be mine", and now he's a warrior representing _ichigan (uh YEAH, it won't be his blood. he's not even gonna see the field on 11/24). And the icing on cake? He invites people to his house to fight because he's offended at the responses he got for his "blood on the field" comment. And according to those goofs up north, WE'RE THE ONES WRONG!!! Unbelievable.
But whatever. Media crap is media crap. They won't be able to hide behind media outlets when the scoreboard reads 00:00 in the 4th in THE SHOE, BITCHES!!!!!
Michigan fans are retards. They forget all about what Kalis did while attacking Dawson for doing the exact same thing.
I don't give a damn for the "hole" State of Michigan.
cass tech players give me pause.... great pause. I would love a mr johnson and let MSU enjoy a nugget from cass tech
Webb should not give you pause. At least recruit Dawson and keep building those relationships for guys like him.
Dawson is not going to have anything nice to say to his HS team mates about TSUN and there are a few Bucekye targets on that team that are younger so it's better if he is saying good things about OSU even if he doesn't attend.
And let's not forget all of the "colorful" comments they sent Dunn when he decided to stay with his commitment to TOSU. I'm sure that made his cousin Thomas very proud to be a SkunkRat.
I rarely get a kick out of the misery of others but I would be lying if I would not get amusement out of TSUNS class falling apart late. That would give me a nice chuckle. Thomas backing out would be pretty funny but I think there little chance of it happening. Still brings a grin to my face just to think about it though.
man i completely forgot about kalis lol
you can bet he is regretting his decision right now... and will certainly be even more upset on nov 24!
Oh yea let's go bucks
So agree here except that there are a couple other players from that school that I might like to get. Hard to say no to Dawson.
2018? Thats kinda weak, IM banned from the PSU board until the beginning of 2099
