Here are some junior highlights of Florida 2014 commitment Duke Dawson from Cross City, Fla./Dixie County. He just committed to the Gators over Florida State.

Duke Dawson is a 2014 cornerback prospect from Cross City, Fla./Dixie County that just committed to Florida over Florida State back on Tuesday. Dawson is 5-foot-11 and 185-pounds.

Dawson looks like a good all-around cornerback prospect that is solid in run support and pass coverage. He plays the run tough, is physical at the point of attack and not afraid to throw his body around to make a tackle. He closes quickly and shows range playing corner, safety or in the box.

In coverage, Dawson shows that he can turn his hips, run and cover. He can play the ball in the air well to. I just wish there was more film on him playing against the pass, though I am sure we will see him a lot this spring and summer at camps, combines and 7-ons.

Below are some highlights from his junior season.
