Trotwood-Madison (Trotwood, Ohio) has been kind to Michigan in the past and in the 2013 class, and the Wolverines coaches are hoping to mine the high school hotbed one more time.

Michigan sent out an offer to safety Reon Dawson on Monday, Dawson reported. The coaches called him Monday during lunch to let him know of the offer.

"Length and speed," the 6-foot-1 Dawson wrote in a text as to what the coaches told him was the reason they offered.
