OG/C Cameron Dillard Profile
Plymouth Canton High School [Plymouth, Mich.] junior Cameron
Dillard got the news from Clemson offensive line coach Robbie
"It was a great feeling. Being from the south, dad's from South Carolina
and mom's from North Carolina, it's just been a good feeling to get that,"
Dillard told CUTigers on Tuesday.
With their offer, Clemson joins Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas,
Cincinnati, Florida, Indiana, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oregon,
Virginia Tech, Washington and West Virginia.
"Like all offers that I've received, I feel blessed, very appreciative
that I'm able to have [them]. I can't thank Clemson's staff enough for
having the faith in me," he said.
Dillard learned about the offer when he received an e-mail from Caldwell
"I gave him a call. He said they were doing conditioning a little earlier
this afternoon. He saw a couple of freshmen that are there early working
out. He went back to the film room and watched my film, to see how I'd fit
in with those guys," Dillard said. "Everybody agreed as a staff that they
wanted to offer me, because they're taking only two offensive linemen.
"I didn't get to talk to coach [Dabo] Swinney at the time,
because he had to go see the A.D. I'll either be talking to him later
tonight or tomorrow afternoon."
The 6-foot-3, 280-pound prospect was non-committal about listing
"Everything's kind of wide-open right now," he said. "I'm just kind of
open-minded with everything. I'm looking at each school, their pros and
cons. I'm just kind of taking everything in and seeing where I best fit.
"I want to see which school has the three A's, the athletics, the
atmosphere and the academics."
A decision will be made before the start of his senior season.
"That's my goal, my plan right now. I'll just leave it in the air. When I
get that gut feeling, that's when I'll know I'm ready to commit," Dillard
