Lloyd Close to Making Decision

Dallas Lloyd has recently garnered a lot of interest and offers and has subsequently made a lot of unofficial trips to the schools recruiting him the most. On the heels of unofficial visits to BYU, Utah and most recently Stanford, Lloyd indicated that he may be making his final decision within the next week.

"I'm looking to decide this coming week," confirmed Dallas Lloyd. "You need to let schools know early so they don't move on and offer other guys, and I think I know enough to make a decision here soon. I don't know if I'll definitely commit this week, but it's likely."

Dallas Lloyd is a 6-foot-2-inch, 200-pound quarterback prospect from Pleasant Grove, Utah. Although considered to be an athlete that could play a variety of positions by most programs, Lloyd is intent on playing quarterback at the next level.

"I want to play quarterback for sure," said Lloyd. "The schools that are recruiting me have all said they want me as a quarterback, so I don't think that's going to be an issue at all."

Lloyd's interest from Division I schools has skyrocketed since early February, and most recently he has received offers from the likes of Miami and Nebraska to go along with his already impressive list of offers.

As mentioned, Lloyd has spent the last month looking at three programs up close in hopes of making his decision. Most recently Lloyd and his parents visited Stanford's Junior Day.

"I had heard a lot of great things about Stanford before going on my trip there," related Lloyd. "My dad has a friend whose son went there and they love it, and I also talk a lot with Chris Badger, who committed there. We're really good friends, so I had a good impression of Stanford before visiting there."

Following the trip to Stanford, Lloyd came away even more impressed than before with the school.

"I love the coaches there," said Lloyd. "Coach Harbaugh is an amazing guy who I'd love to play for. They showed me around and showed how I'd fit in playing quarterback in their system, and it seemed like a great fit. The visit was amazing."

Lloyd obviously has the academic credentials to attend Stanford, as he's maintained a 4.0 GPA since the eighth grade.

Lloyd also had good things to say about Utah.

"The system there is perfect for me I think," said Lloyd, who is very much a threat to run the football anytime he drops back to pass. "They really sat me down and I like Utah a lot as a school and as a football program. I have friends up there, so they'd be there and that would be great to play with them."

With BYU, Lloyd has really come to know quarterback coach Brandon Doman and has sat down to watch film with him, among other activities. Lloyd attended at least one BYU spring practice and came away impressed.

"I've always loved BYU," said Lloyd. "I love their program, and being from Utah County, they were the school I cheered for. I love the spiritual environment they have there and I'd definitely love to play for them as well."

Lloyd doesn't have definite mission plans, although he indicated that he's leaning strongly toward serving one. TBS will keep our ears close to the ground and let you know of any decision Lloyd makes this coming week.
