Dillard Loves Offense, But Left Wondering

Running back Danny Dillard was offered by Georgia Tech in his sophomore year, but as for the last year, he hasn't heard as much from their coaching staff. This has left the 2012 recruit out of Venice, Florida wondering if they still hold an interest in his skills.

The strong, speedy running back was never informed which position he would play in the Georgia Tech backfield, but he is determined to get into the triple-option system and let his play speak for itself.

"I love their offense – I think I'd fit really well in the triple-option," Dillard said.

Danny Dillard has three offers currently (one from Tech and also offers from Purdue and Western Kentucky), but the Yellow Jackets are getting plenty of his focus. He mentioned that Georgia Tech is at the top-5 of his list, and he is hoping to move them up in the next few months.

That, of course, will rely partly on making a visit to Atlanta, and Dillard has never been on the campus of Georgia Tech. He said he is eager to make a trip up to tour the facilities and meet the coaches, but he hasn't heard from the staff in a while.

"As soon as they come back down here to visit, I'll be very interested to hear what they say," Dillard said.

Dillard's 6-2, 200-pound frame coupled with a 4.4-second 40 time could work well with the Jackets' running game, and he is confident that he will get the chance to commit to Georgia Tech. But he wants to visit the school and see what it's all about, because he likes everything he's heard about it so far.

The junior out of Venice High School also mentioned that he will not wait until Signing Day to make his final decision, so expect the Tech coaching staff to contact Dillard soon if they are still interested in getting his commitment.
