Class of 2013 outside linebacker Dillon Lawson, who is currently on ESPNU’s 150 Watch List and has a Bama “A” tattooed on his chest, committed to Florida on Saturday, but now tells ESPN that his dream school is actually hated rival Alabama...
quote:

“I mean I was born and raised in Alabama,” Lawson said. “I have an Alabama tattoo on my chest. That’s the reason why. I’m just an Alabama fan. That’s all there is about it. I mean Alabama is my dream school, off the top, No. 1. I told coach Will [Muschamp], ‘Coach I was a Gator fan when I was in Alabama, they were like my second favorite team. But when I moved to Florida I saw how cocky and crazy these Gator fans where, so that kind of turned me away from Florida.’ I told him that.”
Then why did he choose Florida?
quote:

“When I walked out on that field in The Swamp it was just crazy, it was phenomenal,” Lawson said. “I just felt like I can play there, with all those people looking at me. I got chill bumps when I walked out of that tunnel. I was like, ‘Dang, I can do this.’ I really underestimated Florida. I guess you don’t need to underestimate anyone until you see it for yourself, and I did. I really like the University of Florida.”
Figure it out, son.

As a Vol fan, I'll say he is a very confused and disturbed young man.

UF's "big" dissappointment will come IF Bama offers him. If he's not offered by Bama.... teamates will "remove" that tatoo for him, I suspect.

How rediculous, "Coach (at UF), I just want you to know - I really don't like Florida's fans... they are cocky and that turns me off. I am a big Alabama fan and I got a tat on my chest.... but I want you to know that I'm committing early to UF.. thanks coach".

If I'm Muschamp.... I keep looking and I'm willing to pull the offer. I can't see anything firm in this kid's "committment".
