Report: Michigan flips 2nd B1G recruit in 3 days, grabbing Illinois DB Reon Dawson
Michigan has flipped its second Big Ten recruit in three days.
Illinois cornerback commit Reon Dawson committed to the Wolverines on Monday, according to Scout. The Trotwood (Ohio) Madison High School standout is a three-star prospect according to Scout and unranked according to Rivals.
His pledge follows that of offensive lineman Dan Samuelson, who joined the Wolverines on Saturday after originally committing to Nebraska.
Dawson is the 26th member of the Wolverines' 2013 recruiting class, which ranks No. 5 according to Rivals, No. 1 according to Scout and No. 7 according to ESPN. He is the sixth defensive back to commit to Michigan.
Six members of the class already have enrolled, some of whom will be backdated to the 2012 class. That is expected to leave room for at least one more commit.
Michigan remains the leader to land the nation's top tailback, Derrick Green of Richmond, Va. He is expected to decide between Auburn, Tennessee and the Wolverines on Jan. 26.
