The interest in Dylan is starting to gain some traction. Following his trip to Raleigh to visit North Carolina State he'll be traveling to Winston-Salem to visit Wake Forest this weekend. Another school that has entered the picture is Georgia Tech.
Georgia Tech had an interest in Dylan and the recent hire of former North Carolina State coach Andy McCollum has only served to underscore their interest in him. "I was supposed to be there for their Junior Day a few weeks ago, but I had a conflict with a track meet." Dylan will make it to Atlanta to visit Tech at some point but at the present time he's not sure when that will be.
In addition to the schools already mentioned, Dylan also has an offer from East Carolina. It may be too early for Dylan to rank his favorites as he's still visiting the schools with interest in him. When asked to name the schools he likes that have offered, Dylan mentioned North Carolina State and Wake Forest as being at the top. "I haven't been to Wake yet so it's hard to say."
Dylan is staying in shape in the offseason by throwing the discus and shot put on the track team. He'll also be going to Elon for a week this summer with his high school team.
In the classroom, he maintains a 3.0 GPA and scored a 1560 on the SAT. When asked about a possible major, Dylan said, "I think I'd like to get a business degree."
Dylan has academics at the top of his list when it comes to choosing a school. He'd also want to relate well to the coaches and the campus will also be a consideration when making his decision. "I'd also like to stay on the east coast." Dylan will likely make his decision at the end of his football season and will rely on his parents and coach in making that decision.
