Checking in on Dawson

Lamar Dawson checks in at 6-2 and 235 pounds and is the nation's No. 7 ranked middle linebacker. The four-star middle linebacker from Danville (KY) Boyle County is one of the most heavily recruited players in the Southeast.

The Florida Gators have been in hot pursuit of Lamar Dawson and they spoke again last night.

"It went good," Dawson said. "I got a chance to speak with Coach Heater and Coach Meyer. It went real well. Coach Heater was talking about how he was going to try and come to my game on Friday."

Dawson is still planning to take his official visit to The Swamp when the Gators host LSU.
