Dotson would have been a big get for Mike MacIntyre and this news is a bummer. According to Rivals, Dotson is a big fan of Peterson and the staff at Washington.
"I had to really sit down and think about it," Dotson said. "It was a long process. It actually started from Boise. Even though I didn't want to go to Boise I had great chemistry with the coaches and then once they moved over to Washington they offered me.
"I still liked the coaches ever since Boise and they offered me at Washington. They said I could come visit the school so I took one of my officials to their school and I liked it out there. The education was pretty good. I liked the academic advisors. The facilities were nice. I thought that was the right spot for me."
The weeks leading up to signing day were supposed to be relatively quiet for the Buffs this season, hopefully it will remain that way if the alternative is the loss of more of the current verbals.

"The coaches there are fantastic and they need some speed in the backfield and I feel I can help their team out, and help them win more games. Coach MacIntyre and Coach Adams were really excited. They can't wait for me to come out there. They have a great Engineering program, and that is what I want to study."
