Georgia Athlete DeeJay Dallas Has West Virginia On Long List of Interested Suitors

Georgia athlete DeeJay Dallas has a long list of suitors and scholarship offers, but West Virginia is one school that has piqued his interest after recent contact.

DeeJay Dallas could be a quarterback, a wide receiver or a defensive back in college -- he's that versatile. He's played all those positions and more at Glynn Academy, and his excellence in each of those roles have brought offers and interest from across the nation. Florida, Georgia, Clemson, Michigan and Michigan State are just a few of the schools on his list, and it won't be a surprise to that list grow even larger as his summer camp and senior season of competition unfold.

In his multi-faceted role, Dallas (6-0, 190 lbs.)  helped Glynn Academy to the state championship final, and along the way has shown top-level capability on both offense and defense. Asked to quantify his abilities, Dallas simply says "making plays" is his strength on the field.

"I can run away from people, and I can make them miss," he noted.

Dallas isn't sure of his summer camp plans yet, but said he will definitely visit West Virginia Mountaineers once the details are ironed out. He confirmed that he has solid interest in the Mountaineer program, and that he is open in the recruiting process after recently decommitting from Georgia.  That move was almost certainly in response to the firing of Mark Richt, who is now the head coach at Miami.
