Following the news that Everett Golson was not enrolled at Notre Dame, Brandon Dawkins attempted to commit to the Fighting Irish. He even attempt to begin a Twitter campaign to tweet Head Coach Brian Kelly, who could not be reached because he was on vacation.
Dawkins told 247Sports:
“I decided that if the offer is still there, I’m going to commit (to Notre Dame). They offered a few months ago, which was a while, so I haven’t really talked to them much, but I just want to talk to the coach, make sure everything’s still there, and hopefully commit. It’s a big program that was my first offer. It’s a pretty big deal. I’ve always been interested in the program and I’m just ready to commit. When I took the trip down there, it pretty much sealed the deal. I fell in love right away with the campus right away, it’s an awesome campus. The whole staff is great and I’m just ready to do it.”
Dawkins attempt to commit came out of left field on Saturday night. He had not been mentioned in a while as someone the Irish were pursuing at the Quarterback position. However, he was the first offer that Notre Dame extended at the Quarterback position.
Since Saturday night, the push for Dawkins to commit has cooled. Whether or not he still intends to commit or whether the Irish coaching staff would even accept his commitment remains to be seen. On Sunday, Everett Golson expressed his intentions to return to school in the Winter/Spring Semester of 2014. This could obviously alter Dawkins’ desire to commit. In addition, the Irish may want to hold off until 4-star/5-star Quarterback Kyle Allen visits South Bend in early June.
