Franklinton (La.) Pine three-star athlete Derrick Dillon continues to see his offer list grow. Florida, Mississippi State, Tennessee, Louisiana Tech, and Southern Miss have already offered the 5-foot-11, 175-pound standout.
Over the weekend he added another big time offer to his growing list when the Texas A&M Aggies extended an offer his way.
The offer came on the heels of a visit to College Station, a visit Dillon enjoyed very much.
"I liked it going out there to College Station and meeting all the good coaches," Dillon said. "All the coaches, I liked them. They were real cool. It was nice talking to them. Their facilities were real good. I had fun out there in College Station."
Dillon has attracted attention on both sides of the ball. His latest offer will give him a chance to showcase his talents on the offensive side of the ball.
"They want me to play slot receiver and maybe a little punt return and kick return," Dillon said.
"They talked a little bit about moving me around."
LSU is currently the only school talking to him about playing defense, and Dillon admits he would rather stick to offense.
"Yeah because that's all I've been doing since I was little, so I like it," Dillon said.
While he does have a preference on which side of the ball he would like to play, he does not have a preference about which school at this point. He does not claim a leader at this point in the process.
"No, not right now," Dillon said. "I'm just taking it all in."
With that said, there is one coach who has already established a strong relationship with the Pine standout.
"Probably with Florida. Derek Lewis," Dillon said. "I just relate with him real well because he's from Louisiana. He's pretty cool."
Texas A&M's Terry Joseph has also made a quick impression on Dillon.
Dillon says he plans to make his decision around Signing Day, and as for the nearer future he does not have anything concrete on his schedule. He is looking at the possibility of visiting Florida, Florida St, or Texas soon, but he is still in the decision making process.
"Not right now, but I have to talk to my dad about where we want to hit up next," Dillon said.
