Apopka (Fla.) safety Kimlon Dillon has landed two early offers but is also hearing from a handful of other schools as well.
"USF and Memphis have offered me," Dillon said. "Indiana is in the picture. Also Auburn, Clemson, Miami, Georgia Tech, Cincinnati, and a few others."
The 6-foot-2, 180-pound defensive back was glad to land that first offer, which came from the in-state Bulls.

"USF was my first offer," Dillon said. "I felt like I got a load off my back when they offered. I had waited for so long and was starting to wonder if I was ever going to get one. When I finally got one, I was just happy."
Upon receiving the offer, Dillon spoke at length with a member of Skip Holtz' staff. That staff member is his main contact in Tampa.
"I got to talk to their defensive backs coach, Rick Smith," Dillon said. "I went to their Junior Day, so I talked to all of their coaches, but Coach Smith is really the only one that I have a close relationship with."
Dillon recapped his Junior Day visit to the University of South Florida.
"It was beautiful," Dillon said. "They just got new practice fields. It was awesome. I loved their workout facilities. I got to see their basketball facilities and a free game, which is always good. I saw all of their facilities. I saw where they watch film. It was pretty good, a pretty good trip."
At this point in his recruitment, Dillon has yet to talk much with Larry Porter and the Memphis staff.
"No, I haven't really built a relationship with them yet," Dillon said. "I am working on it."
Later this week, Dillon and his teammate, Qua Barnes, will hit the road to check out a number of schools including Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio State, Miami of Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, Eastern Michigan, and Purdue.
