Dawkins came to UCF to play for his father, Johnny, after two seasons at Michigan. He was quite productive in the second half of his freshman season for the Wolverines, averaging 9.5 points and 2.5 rebounds per game.
Aubrey was supposed to play for UCF in 2017-18 but a preseason shoulder injury cost him that year. He came back this year and finished second on the team in scoring behind B.J. Taylor with 15.6 points per game, along with 5.0 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1 steal per game. He was also named Second Team All-Conference.
