Marquette picked up its fourth commitment of the 2013 class when point guard John Dawson verbally pledged to the Golden Eagles Wednesday.
Dawson, a 6-foot-2, 175 pound Clovis, N.M. native, chose Marquette over Creighton, Texas-El Paso, Auburn and Texas Tech, among others.
Dawson is a two-star recruit, according to ESPN, and got three stars from Rivals.com but was unranked by Scout.com.
He never visited Marquette but was reportedly visited by coaches last week.
According to ESPN, Dawson is “a combination guard who is more a point guard given his ability to run a team. Great with the ball, can handle it and he’s good on the break and in the halfcourt. Makes plays for his team. He can shoot it when open with range to the 3-point line. Has good size for the point. He can slide over and play off the ball as well. Good athlete.”
Dawson joins a highly touted 2013 class for the Golden Eagles that already includes local products Duane Wilson and Deonte Burton, both of whom are consensus top-100 recruits. Junior college transfer Jameel McKay is the other member of next year’s class.
