OLB Nick Dawson Profile
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound rising senior from Charlotte's Beary Academy made the stop with teammate Germone Hopper, a four-star wide receiver who is committed to the Tigers' 2012 class.
"It was great. Everything was excellent. The way the camp was run. It was organized, everything," Dawson told CUTigers.com.
Ranked as the No. 26 outside linebacker in the nation, according to Scout.com, Dawson was impressed with the pace at which the Clemson staff works.
"All the coaches were on different fields, but on the same pace. Everything was organized," he said.
Dawson worked with defensive coordinator/linebackers coach Kevin Steele.
"That was great. He'll yell at you, but it's like constructive criticism," Dawson said. "He'll get you, but he'll get right back on you if you do something good. That was great. He's a great coach."
A camp visit was made to North Carolina before Clemson. Dawson also plans to hit up Louisville for a camp visit later this summer.
Like his other trips to Tigertown, this one topped the previous visit.
"The city is based around Clemson football. I like that," Dawson said. "I like a lot of the little things they show. Everything I go down there, it's not the same things. Every time I go down there, I see something that's better and better and better. That's great."
The four-star prospect has a hard time naming a favorite right now. Part of the holdup is because there is some uncertainty about his status with Clemson.
"Clemson, I think they are only going to take one linebacker this year. T.J. Burrell, he just committed, so I don't know if they still want me," Dawson said.
As a junior, Dawson had 113 tackles, 14 for a loss, five sacks, six forced fumble and an interception during his junior year.
As a sophomore, he was in on 125 tackles with six interceptions, three of which were returned for touchdown.
