Dawson has yet to make the team, but he knows what needs to be done to make that a reality.
"(Being nominated) was very surprising," said Dawson. "I felt real honored, but I just need to keep working hard to get better," finished Dawson.
"I was surprised that (Michigan) offered. They had sent me letters all throughout my junior year, but it still surprised me when they offered," Dawson told Scout.com's Allen Trieu.
Dawson also talked to Chris Courtney of eDuck Sports about his Oregon offer. "I just call (Oregon) every two weeks, (I call) Coach (Don) Pellum. He came to the school last week and he offered me," said Dawson.
Dawson plans to take his time with the recruiting process and will likely make his decision after his senior year.
