One of the best all-around athletes on the junior college level is wide receiver athlete Charles Dillon (6-1, 190, 4.5) from Ventura (Calif.) College. He played his high school football at Oxnard (Calif.) Hueneme and signed with Washington State after a stellar high school career.
"They consider Charles the "Reggie Bush" of junior college football," private coach John Diaz said. "He has played running back, wide receiver and even some safety against Compton, plus he returns punts and kicks."
"Charles is as a big time player you are going to find," Diaz said. "He has all the intangibles and tangibles to be a great player on the collegiate level."
"Charles can jump, he can run, he has great hands and runs great routes," Diaz said. "More importantly, he has ability to make a big play every time he touches the ball."
Dillon ended up with 69 catches for 1,004 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns. He had a total of over 1,400 all purpose yards and there's a good chance that he is going to win the MVP or offensive MVP for his conference.
No wonder Dillon has offers from Washington State, Arizona, Cal, Oregon State, Arizona State and Ole Miss.
Dillon has already taken an official visit to Washington State. This of course is the second time the Cougars have recruited Dillon and the second time he's taken a visit to Pullman.
"Charles loved his visit to Pullman," Diaz said. "His whole family went with him in this trip."
"Washington State showed the family what the school has to offer," Diaz. "They presented the Washington State environment and Charles fits in the program."
"Washington State has the lead for his services, but he's keeping his options open," Diaz said. "One thing that Charles likes about Washington State is the Cougars will allow him to play both football and basketball."
If Dillon chooses the Cougars that could be a good thing for them since he is also a first-team all-conference performer in hoops.
According to Diaz the Arizona Wildcats are trying to get a visit set up with Dillon sometime in December.
Dillon has the school record for both single season and career receptions at Ventura College.
Dillon is a spring grad and has three to play two.
