PHILLIP DILLARD-Top 20 Junior

Jenks Inside linebacker 6-2, 235, 4.65 One look at the schools Dillard is considering tells you all you need to know about the junior's abilities. "OU, Kansas State, OSU, Tennessee, Texas A&M ... those are the ones I'm leaning toward right now," said Dillard. "But it's still up in the air."

In helping Jenks claim the Class 6A state championship last season, Phillip Dillard compiled 95 tackles, four sacks, a fumble recovery and an interception.

"He's got the size and speed to play inside or outside," said Jenks coach Allan Trimble, explaining Dillard's athletic prowess. "He could probably be an inside guy that weighs 250 in college.

"We use him as our "Rock" linebacker and he gives us the ability to line him up in different places and utilize him in different ways. He's great a shedding blockers and great at blitzing."

Playing the high-profile position and moving around in the Trojans' alignments is all part of the process for Dillard.

"It's cool to have that kind of impact on the game," Dillard said.
