Camp Hill (Pa.) Trinity offensive tackle R.J. Dill has narrowed his list to two schools. The 6-foot-6, 274-pounder plans to announce a decision between the two sometime later this month.
"I'm down to Maryland and Connecticut," he said. "I'm going to decide on July 26th, my birthday."
What makes the two programs stick out to Dill?
"Each of them offer what I want academically and football wise," he said. "UConn might not have the good tradition other schools do, but in my mind the coaching staff is definitely on its way to creating tradition at that school.
"Maryland offers great academics and they have a bit of tradition. They play in the ACC and in my opinion are a top 25 program by the end of the year."
More went into the decision to narrow his list besides those though.
"The coaches had a lot to do with it," he said. "I've particularly gotten to know UConn the past few months and Maryland has been recruiting me for a long time.
"In addition, Maryland is redoing their stadium, while UConn added a 52 million dollar complex. I like the fact both of these communities are committed to winning games too."
What will the three-star prospect do from here?
"Right now I really want to take a bit of time since both schools are dead even for me," he said. "I'm not looking at taking any more visits instead I want to sit down and make my decision on the facts. I'm going to decide on which one feels like home to me."
