A former commit from Michigan's 2013 recruiting class has now placed Ohio State in his top four schools.

4-star offensive guard David Dawson decommitted from Michigan on Sunday, but the news didn't really affect the Buckeye faithful up to this point. Now, Dawson has opened up his recruitment process once again, naming a top four of Alabama, Florida, Ohio State and LSU. These teams are in no particular order and a fifth team will be added later on.

Standing at 6'4", 280-pounds, Dawson played his first two seasons at Cass Tech (in Detroit, Michigan) before a family move brought him down to the Houston area, where he played for Cypress Ridge as a junior. Following his junior season, Dawson then transferred back to Cass Tech for his senior season. According to 247Sports, Dawson is the sixth best offensive guard in the country and the second best player in the state of Michigan.

Despite reports that David Dawson is favoring Florida at this point, we know better than to count out the recruiting skills that Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer possesses. If the Buckeyes have more difficulty landing offensive linemen such as Dorian Johnson in this class or even the next, you can bet that coach Meyer will do his best to convince Dawson Ohio State is the place for him.
