Canton, Mich., offensive lineman Cameron Dillard swept through the months of January and February landing offer after offer until his list totaled better than 20. On Monday, the 6-3, 285-pound lineman whittled that list all the way down to one and made his commitment.
"I am a Florida Gator," Dillard reported Monday afternoon.
Florida head coach Will Muschamp extended an offer to Dillard back in February.
"They like my athleticism, my aggression, the way I finish, that I play downhill ball and like to get after kids," Dillard said at the time of the offer. "They liked how I built a relationship with Coach Young and think I will fit real well into the Florida program."
Dillard's interest in the Gators precedes their scholarship offer, however. Growing up, the state of Michigan prospect counted himself a fan of Florida's football program and he said the offer meant a lot to him because of that.
Dillard had not visited Florida prior to this week. His spring break started on Monday, and he planned to be in Gainesville to check out the campus and meet with the coaching staff.
An interior offensive lineman with the ability to play either guard or center, Dillard mentioned earlier in the process that most of the SEC teams recruiting him were doing so for the center position.
Besides Florida, Dillard had also received offers from the likes of Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Cincinnati, Clemson, Florida State, Indiana, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oregon, Virginia Tech, Washington and West Virginia .
Dillard is rated three stars and ranked as the No. 13 offensive guard prospect in the country. He is the 15th commitment for the Gators in the 2013 class and the fourth in the last three days.
