APOPKA, Fla. - Apopka (Fla.) safety Kimlon Dillon showed his playmaking ability on Friday night in a loss against Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips. The 6-foot-2, 180-pound defensive back caught a deflected pass from Nick Patti and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown.
That playmaking ability is one of the reasons why the three-star prospect has a number of options for his collegiate future.
"I am at 15 offers now," Dillon said. "I have a main three of Arkansas, West Virginia, and Kentucky. I am planning to take my visits to all three but I am not sure when for all three. Arkansas is probably going to be October 8th, I am trying to set that up."
Dillon talked about the three primary schools he mentioned as in the picture at this time.
Arkansas: "They are in the SEC. They play hard defense, they run a hard defense. I have a good connection with the coaches. They just play real hard ball and I like that. They are in the SEC which is the toughest conference to play in."
Kentucky: "Also in the SEC. One thing that is big about them is they have a senior who is about to leave this year and I would have a chance to come in and play there pretty early. I feel as if I go there, I have a chance to play right off the bat after talking with their coaches."
West Virginia: "I have been talking to Coach (David) Lockwell like every weekend. He is their defensive backs coach. I call him like every weekend and then he called me (Thursday) night. We just have a great relationship. I think it is real cool that we get along like that with him being my position coach and my recruiter."
After the interview, Dillon indicated that Central Florida - a recent offer - makes his top three a top four and that the Knights will also receive an official visit before he makes any decisions.
He intends to take an official visit to all four schools before he announces his future home.
"I wouldn't say I have a leader right now," Dillon said. "I need to learn more about all of them before I am ready to decide."
