Offers Rolling in For Dillon

2015 three-star Franklinton (La.) Pine wide receiver Derrick Dillon plays quarterback for his high school team, but projects as an electric playmaker at the next level...

Derrick Dillon is a playmaker.

He had over 2,800 yards of total offense and 34 touchdowns in 2013. He also had three interceptions and a defensive touchdown as well.

The 5-foot-11, 165 pound athlete finished the 2013 year strong in recruiting picking up offers from Mississippi State and Tennessee in December.

He got off to a good start in early January when Florida offered.

The last two weeks have been exciting; Florida State, Texas A&M, Arizona State, and UCLA have offered in that order.

"A lot has been going on," said Dillon. "I have gotten some new offers, new schools have shown some interest, and it has been nice." The only school he has visited recently is Texas A&M. The Aggies impresses.

"I really liked it at Texas A&M. I had a great time and I liked a lot of things. The coaches were great, I like the facilities, and the offense they run really stands out too."

Kevin Sumlin and the Aggies are not the only school coming hard after this star athlete in Franklinton (La.) Pine.

An ACC school is as well.

"Florida State offered me and I have been talking to Coach [Randy] Sanders (Quarterbacks) and they want me there to help at wide receiver. Coach Sanders said they will need some help there. I saw them win the national championship, so I know they have some players."

Dillon wants to get down to the Sunshine State to visit Florida and FSU at some time this spring or summer.

Right now Dillon is talking to coaches when he can and just taking all in stride.

In-state school LSU has yet to offer and he is not stressed about that.

"They recruit me some, but not too much," said Dillon. "I went there for a game last year and I have talked to them, but it is hard to tell if they are close to offering or not. I know they like me at cornerback and the other schools have offered me as a wide receiver. We will just wait and see."

If the Tigers do offer, it is likely LSU will move right into the mix with the rest of the schools.

For now, Dillon is viewing all schools the same.

"I do not have any favorites and I am going to wait a while before I do. I am not committing until after I take my official visits, so I have plenty of time.

"I like all the schools the same and I am going to keep talking to coaches to see how we get along and looking over the different offenses."
