Kevin Dillman recently took a tour of four schools in the South and the 2015 quarterback from La Mirada, Calif., could be leaning toward leaving the West Coast to play college football.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect who's originally from Sweden recently took trips to Vanderbilt, Louisville, Tennessee and Alabama and raved about possibly playing in that area of the country.
"He had nothing but great things to say about every school," La Mirada coach Mike Moschetti said. "One thing he did say was how impressed he was with the schools in the SEC compared to the West Coast."

Vanderbilt and Louisville were first and each impressed Dillman, who didn't play much quarterback last season because La Mirada had an established player at that position. That has not stopped schools from offering.
All the programs Dillman visited except for Alabama have already offered.
"He loved Vanderbilt," Moschetti said. "He loves that they're in the SEC. He loved the head coach and (quarterbacks coach) Ricky Rahne and the academic aspect of Vanderbilt. It's a great town.
"The offensive coordinator at Louisville is my old quarterbacks coach, Shawn Watson. I'm really, really close with coach Watson. Shawn Watson is as good of a guy as there is. He had a great time there because a lot of the stuff we do at La Mirada is what I learned from him."
Moschetti, who played at Colorado, said Dillman's other two stops were equally good. The 2015 quarterback was highly impressed by Tennessee's facilities and he also threw for the Alabama coaches, so the Crimson Tide could be close to offering as well.
"Tennessee is mind-boggling," Moschetti said. "It's just an unbelievable place. The stadium, the facilities, all the money going into the facilities is really impressive.
"At Alabama, he had a really, really good time. He threw for (offensive coordinator/quarterbacks) coach (Doug) Nussmeier and coach (Nick) Saban. Coach Saban had him in the office and said they're probably going to offer and he should know in the next couple weeks."
