Dinson picks up two new offers

Syracuse and Arkansas were the latest to offer Hialeah (Fla.) American Senior High defensive back Jeremiah Dinson. He discusses his reaction to the offers, potential spring visits and more inside.

Hialeah (Fla.) American Senior High cornerback Jeremiah Dinson is up to four offers after grabbing two last week. One of those was from Syracuse, who is looking to hit the Florida pipeline once again in 2015.

"(Offensive coordinator) George McDonald contacted my head coach," Dinson said. "I think it was on Thursday. I called him and he said he really liked me. That's when he decided to offer. This was the first time I've talked to coach McDonald.

"I have seen him when he was recruiting other people, but this was my first time talking to him. When I was talking to him, it felt good. I felt like he wanted me. He told me I was aggressive. He said he liked my hips and told me that I had really good ball skills. They're looking at me at corner."

Picking up the offer from Syracuse and knowing about McDonald's recruiting prowess in the state meant a lot to Dinson. He hopes to visit the Orange soon in order to learn more about the program.

"My reaction to that was big," Dinson said. "I was laying down when he told me and I jumped up. I was ecstatic about it. Yes, I do have plans to visit Syracuse. But I don't know when yet.

"I have to sit down with my family and talk about it. But I think I'll be up there soon. Probably this spring."

The 5-foot-9 corner also added an offer from an SEC school, who he also hopes to visit.

"My reaction to Arkansas was big to that," Dinson said. "We were in the car and my coach told me to call Arkansas. I did and they said they really liked me. He saw me play in one of my playoff games and liked it. I'm definitely going to try to visit them too."

Dinson says Connecticut has been in touch and he thinks they may offer soon. At the moment, he also holds offers from Cincinnati and Florida Atlantic. Florida International is also expressing interest, and he hopes to visit each school during the spring or summer.

The American Senior High standout is not looking to make an early decision, saying he wants to go through the entire process before committing.
