Michigan Football recruiting: Reon Dawson commits

Michigan Football recruiting update

Michigan Football Recruiting

Michigan picked up commitment #26 on Monday when Reon Dawson made it known that he would be playing his college football in Ann Arbor. A 3-star prospect, Dawson had been committed to Illinois. He checks in at 6-foot-1, 175 pounds and will play cornerback at Michigan. Dawson is from Trotwood-Madison (Ohio) the same school as linebacker commit Mike McCray II and former Wolverines Roy Roundtree, Brandon Moore and Michael Shaw.

Dawson has good speed, ball skills and football instinct. He is the 6th defensive back in Michigan’s 2013 class.

As, I mentioned above, this gives Michigan 26 commits for 2013. That number could swell as high as 28 which begs the question, how can they sign 28 recruits to letters of intent when a capacity class is supposed to be 25? The answer is early enrollees. Michigan’s 2013 class has 6 of them and they can count 3 of them towards the 2012 class.

The early enrollees are; Kyle Bosch, Jake Butt, Taco Charltan, Ross Douglas, Logan Tuley-Tillman, and Dymonte Thomas.

So who might be the final pieces to the puzzle for Michigan’s 2013 class?

We know Derrick Green is set to announce on January 26th and Michigan may be in the driver’s seat. Brady Hoke was scheduled for an in-home visit with Green on January 14th.

Michigan has offered Macomb Lutheran North kicker JJ McGrath as a preferred walk on. McGrath has a similar offer from LSU and is expected to decide this week where he will go.
