"My uncle knew about the camp and he helped set it all up for me," said Dotson. "He used to play there, his name is Dennis McKinley.
"He said he had a good experience there and he thought I might like it too."
Dotson reports that he had a positive experience in Starkville.
"It was a good camp and I feel like I did pretty good," said Dotson. "They haven't shown a lot of interest yet and I haven't really heard much from them before the camp.
"The coaches said that I did good in drills and everything was nice up there."
Dotson has a couple of other relatives who participated in intercollegiate athletics.
Both of Dotson's parents attended Louisiana-Lafayette. His mother ran track and his father played football.
"I have been knowing about UL my whole life," said Dotson. "I like all of the coaches over there.
"I went to camp there and that's where they ended up offering me.
"I really like the atmosphere over there."
The rising senior plans to end his recruitment in the next several days.
"Right now, I am thinking about committing next week," said Dotson. "I have a couple of schools in mind, UL (Louisiana) and Louisiana Tech.
"I just want to think about things a little longer and then I want to make my decision.
"I don't want to have all of this hanging over me and I want make my decision now, so in case I get hurt I have all of this settled."
