Wake Forest 2018 guard target Will Dillard wants to push pace

Wake Forest 2018 guard target from Greensboro Day High School (NC) Will Dillard had a great summer playing for CP3 16U, including helping his team to a perfect 6-0 record at CP3 Live in Winston-Salem earlier this month.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Greensboro Day (NC) guard Will Dillard put his skills on display earlier this month, as the CP3 16U team went a perfect 6-0 at the CP3 Live event that finished at D1 Training.

He exhibited a nearly-automatic mid-range game, showed great court vision and was often disruptive on defense.

"The summer is going pretty good," Dillard said after the Saturday CP3 Live session. "I've been playing consistently good and have picked up one offer during the summer."

Appalachian State was the latest to offer the 6-foot-2 rising junior guard.

"The mid-range and getting to the basket is what I do best," Dillard said about his game. 

Dillard likes to push the ball up the court, and filled the lane for a gorgeous finish on a give-and-go during pool play. He's wanting to find a school that also allow him to push the pace.

"A school that will get up and down the floor and have more of defensive mindset," Dillard said when asked what he's looking for at the next level.

Wake Forest has offered Dillard, who often hears from Wake assistant coach Brett Ballard.

"He just says I would be a great fit," Dillard said. "He says I play the way they like — up and down, and physical."

With Greensboro Day coach Fred Johnson in attendance watching him on, Dillard already has his eye on what he hopes to improve on this upcoming season.

"I'm working to cut down on turnovers and want to develop a much more consistent jump shot," he said. 

What else do Wake Forest fans need to know about Dillard?

"I'm a great guy," he said with a laugh.
