Lamar Dawson Announcement: What It Means for USC Football
Lamar Dawson, one of the nation's top linebackers, made one of the first surprise announcements today when he picked USC over Kentucky and Tennessee.
For the past week all the rumblings had this as a two-horse race between the Wildcats and the Vols, but Lane Kiffin and Co. came out of nowhere to swoop in for the kill on this one.
Dawson has ideal size for a middle linebacker, but it's his work ethic, aggressiveness, discipline and speed that really make him an eye-popping talent.
He's got the linebacker mentality that you love to see in a prospect. He'll bulldoze his way through the offense to get to the ball-carrier, won't give up position or over-pursue and, best of all, will lay his body on the line and allow a teammate to make the play.
For the Trojans, Dawson's addition is another huge gain for a school with one of the top recruiting classes in the country. Now just imagine what they could do if there weren't sanctions looming over their heads.
