Here's the press release from UT:
LOS ANGELES — Incoming Tennessee quarterback Joshua Dobbs was honored with the prestigious Watkins Award this past Saturday night at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel in Los Angeles. The future Vol was recognized with the accolade that promotes academic excellence among African-American males. Dobbs was selected the winner from four finalists, who were star football players and equally talented in the classroom while also having a history of giving back to their respective communities.
Dobbs, from Alpharetta High School in Georgia, discussed his plans of majoring in aeronautical engineering and understanding his place as a role model. He spoke of his excitement for joining the Watkins family and his desires to keep hold of the traditions being a Watkins honoree and even growing the foundation to even higher levels than it finds itself in today.
Dobbs will arrive in Knoxville in June to begin summer workouts where he will compete for his chance to play for the Vols in 2013.
"Ever since I signed my Letter of Intent I've been itching to get on campus," Dobbs said. "I know I just got to put myself in the position to compete and just give it my best."
