DE/LB Dawson Planning Fall Visit

Georgia prospect Nick Dawson received an offer from Illinois on Tuesday. Get his reaction and more here.

Eagles Landing Christian DE/LB Nick Dawson already holds a long list of offers, and on Tuesday he added another offer to that list when Illinois came calling.

The Peach State prospect got word that the Illini had offered after speaking with Illinois assistant coach Al Seamonson.

Despite just getting the offer, Dawson says he plans to make the trip to Champaign to see Illinois for himself before too long.

"Right now I'm planning on visiting Illinois this fall," Dawson said.

Dawson, holds offers from the likes of Virginia, Syracuse, Louisville, Iowa State, Indiana, and Cincinnati among others.

If things go well it may not be his only visit to Champaign when all is said and done.

"It will be an unofficial visit," he said. "I think I will take my officials after the season."

With his high school season coming up quickly, Dawson doesn't have much time before he straps on the pads again and gets back on the field.

"August 15th is our scrimmage," he said, "and August 23rd is our first full game."
