12/27/2016 - Under Armour Baseball Factory Recruiting Classic Dawson is a lean LHP/OF who will graduate in 2020. At the plate, Dawson has an athletic setup and hands are loose and work through an aggressive swing path. He makes consistent contact through a line drive approach. In the OF, he utilizes his feet well in tracking down balls through proper routes/angles and utilizes two hands well through the fielding process. He works to get behind balls playing through with momentum to his target. Range will increase as he improves foot quickness. On the mound, he shows a fastball in the high 60 mph range with a changeup that shows solid sinking action. Control is solid as he attacks hitters throwing strikes with all his pitches. Stock on the mound will continue to improve as he builds more arm strength through a long toss program. Mental makeup is a plus as he is very coachable and works hard, and is a great team player. With 4 years to further develop, Dawson has abilities with time and room to continue to improve.
