Dion Lecorn Nears Decision

As the recruiting season has progressed, 4-Star wide receiver Dion Lecorn of Trinity Catholic (Ocala Florida) watched his offer list grow to over 12 schools across the South. He has narrowed his choices down to two schools, Florida and South Carolina, and he has named a clear favorite. Keep reading to find out who it is.

"South Carolina is my favorite. I don't know when I'm going to commit, but most likely I'm going to South Carolina. I just want to take some visits before I commit," Lecorn said. He indicated he would most likely visit both schools and then make a commitment.

"I like (Coach Steve) Spurrier and the offense that he runs. I've been liking Spurrier a long time. I think I'd fit in good with him. I don't have a visit set up yet, but I want to come to the Georgia game," he said.

The other school still on his list is the Florida Gators. "They've got a lot of talent. I wouldn't mind playing with a lot of talent around me." He said. "It's right down the road from me. I grew up liking Florida."

Lecorn talked about his biggest strengths as a player: "I've got a combination of speed and power together. I'm a big, physical receiver out there. There's no one part I like best about the game, I just love to play."

Lecorn is already used to big-time football. He is the favorite target of standout QB John Brantley, an Elite 11 quarterback who has committed to play for the defending national champion Texas Longhorns. Lecorn finished 2005 with 59 catches for 1151 yards and 11 touchdowns, and he was named first team all-state as a junior. He already holds Trinity Catholic's career receiving yard leader.

Lecorn likes the idea of playing college ball with another Elite 11 quarterback from the state of Florida. "We didn't sit down and talk about it, but I talked to Stephen Garcia about us both looking at South Carolina."

Another one of Lecorn's high school teammates is free safety Antonio Allen, who he would like to continue playing with at the next level. "We both kind of want to go there (to South Carolina) now."

Lecorn's recruiter for South Carolina, Steve Spurrier, Jr., would be his position coach if he does commit there. Lecorn talked about his relationship with Spurrier. "He's a good all around person. I just like sitting around on the phone talking to him."
