I do not particularly agree with the decision to re-offer Detroit (MI) Cass Tech offensive lineman David Dawson. Dawson committed to Michigan in the spring, decommitted a couple weeks ago by visiting Florida, and was re-offered late last week. Michigan has a policy in place that will no longer hold a spot for players who visit elsewhere, but they pulled Dawson's offer completely when he failed to be forthright about visiting Florida.
This topic has been discussed ad nauseam elsewhere, but I think there's the potential for Michigan recruits not to respect Hoke's "No Visit Policy" in the future. And they would have at least a decent argument for doing so. I realize Dawson has had a rough time with the loss of his father, and some people think that's good enough reason to give him another shot. And maybe it is. But I think it potentially starts a slippery slope. What about a kid whose dad left the family recently? What about a kid whose dad goes to jail? What about a kid whose dad is abusive? There are all kinds of family troubles out there, and you either have a policy or you don't.
