TE Dillon Sets Up Official Visit with USF

USFNation.com spoke with Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard tight end, Elkanah Dillon, about his senior season, South Florida, and the schools he plans to officially visit.

Elkanah Dillon, an under the radar tight end prospect from Ocala (Fla.) Vanguard High School, polished off his senior season on a high note individually for the Knights, but due to some injuries, Vanguard's team fell short of the playoffs with a 5-5 record.

"Our season had a good start, but it began to go downhill with the injuries of a couple players on our team," Dillon said. "Individually, I think did pretty well this season. I've improved a lot since last year. I had about 600 yards this season."

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound pass catching tight end's stellar play has earned him offers from South Florida, UAB, Weber State, Wisconsin and Florida International.

According to Dillon, the one school that's showing the most interest has been South Florida, who offered him earlier this season.

"I got the offer from USF a little while ago," Dillon said. "I'm being recruited by coach Bills (graduate assistant). The good thing about going to USF is that I have two sisters who live there. I think they're a pretty good team and I like the offense they run. They're (USF) showing the most love."

With Signing Day just around on the corner on Feb. 5, the well-rounded tight end from Marion County has set up official visits with two instate institutions.

"I have a visit with USF on Jan. 17, and Florida on Jan. 24," Dillon said. "I may have one with Kentucky on the 31st as well."

Dillon plans to take his time with his college decision and currently has no leaders in his recruitment.

"Yeah, I don't have a leader," Dillon said. "I'm just taking my time so I can make the best decision possible."
