ACC and Big Ten programs among those vying for top Va. WR Dillon Spalding

CLIFTON, Va. -- Four-star Lorton (Va.) South County wide reciever Dillon Spalding will narrow his list of schools soon and he gave Scout the latest at The Opening Washington, D.C.

Dillon Spalding is getting closer to narrowing his list of schools.

In fact, he could make some major decisions in the near future.

"I'm thinking about cutting it down pretty soon," said the 6-foot-2, 215-pound Spalding. "I'm not sure when yet, but I'd like to have it done by the end of the summer."

The South County standout is not ready to name any favorites, but there is a group of schools showing the most interest.

"Virginia TechNorth CarolinaNC State and Wake Forest are recruiting me hardest," Spalding said.  "All the school have offered except North Carolina."

An offer from North Carolina would be significant.

"I love the place -- it's a beautiful place -- and it'd be awesome to play there," Spalding said. "I've been talking to (wide receivers) coach (Gunter) Brewer a lot. He's very knowledgeable and has coached some great receivers. He's told me I could excel as a player and student at UNC."

Penn State will likely be one of his next visits.

"I haven't been there yet, so I'm looking forward to seeing everything," Spalding said. "I've been in contact with (wide receivers) coach (Josh) Gattis and he's been telling me they want to get me on campus. Ricky Slade is also one of my friends and obviously he's committed to them. He loves it and has told me a lot of great things about the school and football program."

Spalding finished his junior season with 67 catches for 1,069 yards and 14 touchdowns.
