"The day before I committed, Coach Grobe told me he was talking with Coach Jackson about the possibility of me committing to them. Then it happened. They were both very happy, a little shocked, but kind of expected it at the same time."
Dillon has been a varsity starter his first three years of high school at The Kinkaid School. He has been an All-Conference performer in each of those seasons for the Falcons. Dillon says he's excited to see how his game will translate to ACC competition.
"On the visit I really liked the small campus size," Dillon said of Wake Forest. I'd like to do something in Sports Management after I graduate and Wake Forest has one of the best Business schools in the country. Playing in the ACC will give me a big platform to perform on. Wake Forest is going to have one of the best secondaries in the nation. I like to watch them and everything they do defensively. They have some guys with a great chance at the NFL and that's what I want to be a part of."
Dillon also plays basketball at Kinkaid and was third in the conference in the 110 meter hurdles this past spring with a 15.1 time. He was a part of two Southwest Prep Conference-Big Schools championships as a freshman and sophomore, but his team fell in the final game to Episcopal in 2012. His teammate, Marvin Saunders, will join him in the ACC after making his commitment to Florida State.
