The 6-foot-5, 180-pound Dawson, ranked as a three-star rookie by 247 Sports and Rivals, received a scholarship offer from the Huskers less than a month ago after a strong summer on the AAU Tour playing for the California Stars.

“Coach Hoiberg and Coach Matt had come to see me, I would say a month ago. It was the first time they had seen me and the first time they knew they had any idea who I was, ”Dawson said. “And they both fell in love with my game instantly. They just knew I was a piece they wanted.”

The offer and an invitation to come on an official visit came just days after Hoiberg and Abdelmassih watched Dawson play. He was one of half a dozen official visitors to Lincoln last weekend for opening night with Husker Hoops, and enlisted just days after his visit.

Nebraska’s quick work “made a big impression,” Dawson said. “A lot of schools contacted me, offered to me, but no school really did – the way they emphasized how they wanted me to stand out a lot.”

Dawson chose Nebraska over Georgia Tech and Iona. He was scheduled to make official visits to both schools, but found what he wanted in Lincoln.
