Between junior day visits and new scholarship offers, few prospects in the 2013 class have had a busier month of February than Canton, Mich., offensive guard Cameron Dillard. The 6-3, 280-pound lineman picked up another new offer on Tuesday from an SEC school.
"I just got off the phone with Coach [Will] Muschamp and I was offered by Florida," Dillard reported. "I was on the phone with [offensive line] coach [Tim] Davis as well as Coach [Bryant] Young too.
"They like my athleticism, my aggression, the way I finish, that I play downhill ball and like to get after kids. They liked how I built a relationship with Coach Young and think I will fit real well into the Florida program."

Dillard's offer list is growing almost daily the last couple weeks, but the offer from Florida did have special meaning to the southeast Michigan native.
"As a child growing up, being a fan of the Gators it means a lot to me," Dillard said. "But every offer means a lot to me and I just definitely feel blessed for all these schools that have offered me."
With Florida entering the mix, Dillard is closing in on 20 total offers for his recruitment and he is working hard to see as many of those schools as early as possible. This past weekend he was down in Blacksburg visiting Virginia Tech.
"It is nice there and definitely a hidden jewel up in those mountains," Dillard said of Virginia Tech. "You get on campus and are pretty impressed with what they have. It was definitely nice to go over there and check things out."
The travel is expected to slow down for Dillard in the coming weeks, though he expects to see one more school before resting up for the spring practice season. Michigan State has been mentioned as that likely next visit destination, but Dillard was still contemplating that Tuesday afternoon.
"I will be going on one more trip, but I am not sure where it is going to be yet," Dillard said. "I will talk to my parents, see what they say and go from there."
