Apopka (Fla.) safety Kimlon Dillon named a top four of Arkansas, Central Florida, Kentucky, and West Virginia back in early September, but a month later he says that list has been scratched.
"I don't really have a top anything," Dillon said. "It is just about who has been talking to me and who has put work towards building a relationship with me."
Two schools have worked hard on Dillon and succeeded in getting him on campus.
"I have been to just Indiana and Purdue," Dillon said.
Dillon traveled to Indiana in early September, when the Hoosiers hosted Virginia.
"I felt like they have a good program, an up-and-coming program," Dillon said of Indiana. "I felt I related to their coaches and their players. They came off real cool."
This past weekend, he traveled to Purdue for their game against Minnesota.
"It wasn't like Indiana, but it wasn't a total bust," Dillon said of Purdue. "They had a good game and they won, they won by a large margin. I don't want to say they are bad, but it was just an OK visit. I can't complain and I am glad I got to go up there and learn more about them."
He knows of one other school he definitely wants to get on campus to.
"I know I am going to go to West Virginia," Dillon said. "If not November 5th, then probably the first week in December."
The three-star hard-hitting safety said that the Mountaineers have done a great job of putting themselves in the thick of it for his services.
"Really the school that is standing out to me as a leader right now is West Virginia," Dillon said. "Me and Coach (David) Lockwood, we have a real good relationship. We talk a lot. He is coming to see me play this Friday. We talk almost every other day, at least twice a week. We have really hit it off. We have a real cool relationship."
Dillon is looking forward to traveling to Morgantown and spending some time with Coach Lockwood and the Mountaineer football team. That trip is likely to be his final trip.
"When I take that visit (to West Virginia), that is probably going to be my last visit and I will be ready to make a decision," Dillon said.
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound defensive back mentioned that Michigan State has recently begun to show a lot of interest in him. They are interested in getting his midseason highlights and have indicated an offer may be extended at that time.
