Brian Dawkins was one of the greatest players in Clemson history and one day will be in the NFL Hall of Fame. The Dawkins name could once again don the back of a Tiger uniform as his son, DB Brian Dawkins Jr. of Parker, CO is seriously considering accepting an offer from Dabo Swinney that was made earlier this summer.

"I've been researching Clemson about the school because I already know about the football program," Dawkins Jr. said earlier this week. "I'm a little bit closer (to committing), I'm not going to lie. I have to talk it over with my family, but it would be a great option. My dad told me wherever I go to be 100 percent certain and represent the family the best I can."

Clemson is Dawkins' only offer at this point. He has heard from Arizona State, Wyoming, Utah State, Washington, Washington State, Colorado and Colorado State.

"Most of the schools have told me they are going to wait until after the season," he said. "My focus is on my team and after that (the season) I'll focus more on what will affect my future."

Dawkins confirmed Clemson is his favorite and he hopes to get there for a game this season.
