Dillon Updates Leader Board

El Cajon (Calif) Christian quarterback, Shane Dillon reveals his top- five list, and talks about his recent visit to Colorado...

Over the weekend El Cajon (Calif) Christian quarterback Shane Dillon and his parents took an unofficial trip to Colorado. Dillon's good friend Erik Magnuson, the four-star offensive lineman, also traveled to Colorado for a visit over the weekend.

They spent the weekend touring the campus, checking out the football stadium and having a sit-down conversation with head coach Jon Embree.

When asked what he thought of the school, Dillon simply said, "I loved it!"

Dillon raved about the campus, the stadium, and how when they walked around campus Sunday afternoon, it was packed with students who were outdoors and enjoying the weather.

Dillon is looking for a football program that has "a pro-style offense, and runs a strong throwing game."

In terms of Academic, Dillon would like to attend a school that will set him up to be successful with or without football. At this point he plans on someday becoming either a firefighter or a sports broadcaster, so he is looking for a school with both a strong science and communications department.

So did Colorado make Dillon's top five? It appears so.

"Colorado, Ohio State, Miami, USC and Stanford are my top five," said Dillon, saying it was in no particular order.

Dillon currently has offers from three out of the five schools on his leader board. He is still hoping to get an offer from USC, Stanford and UCLA and would still like to hear from Texas and Oklahoma.

He has plans to visit Texas and some of the SEC programs this summer when he goes on "The Rock Tour," which is being organized by Dillion's quarterback coach George Whitfield.

" This is the second year my coach is doing the tour, I went last year. Last year they invited 15 quarterbacks and five wide receivers from around the country to participate." Dillon described the tour as a showcase and great for recruiting and an opportunity for the select invitation-only players to see the different programs around the country and to meet the coaches.

Their tour is set to begin in June and the first stop is Texas.
