As the months ticked by before signing day 2012, Georgia saw a number of its cornerback targets commit to other schools. It seemed as though secondary coach Scott Lakatos might not get a defensive back in this class after signing six of them last year.

But then the Bulldogs found a new target and the coaches were determined to land this one. Sheldon Dawson (Memphis, Tenn./ Ridgeway) was one of the top players in Tennessee, but he was committed to Memphis. The Georgia staff believed they could flip the talented cornerback. This past Monday, Dawson committed to the Bulldogs.

“It feels good,” Dawson said. “Athens is going to be my new home. I like how the players interact with each other and how close they are. I just like the coaches and the way it is down there. It is a great environment. I know Marlon Brown and I met a couple people on the visits.”
