As the clock struck midnight Saturday, the contact period was finally done. There will be no more off-campus contact or official visits before signing day arrives Wednesday. But the Georgia Bulldogs were able to squeeze in one last in-home with outside linebacker target Josh Dawson (Tucker, Ga./Tucker). The 6-foot-4, 228-pound senior has been committed to Vanderbilt since last summer, but the Bulldogs have not given up in their attempts to reel in the talented edge rusher. The Commodores had made their last pitch earlier in the week.

“The last time I saw Vanderbilt was Tuesday after my basketball game,” Dawson said. “Coach [Sean] Spencer and Coach [Bob] Shoop had a little PowerPoint presentation and showed me some clips on how they could use me. I think it was a productive visit.”

Vanderbilt head coach James Franklin made an in-home with Dawson this month, and Saturday night Dawson was expecting to see Georgia head coach Mark Richt, but he said Richt make it, because of a family emergency. Dawson was not affected by Richt’s absence.
