2013 Michigan offensive lineman Cameron Dillard will be making the long trip to Clemson this weekend to attend Junior Day.
“I am coming to Clemson this weekend for Junior Day. I am leaving Friday afternoon. My mom and dad will come with me,” said Dillard.
It will be the first trip to Clemson, but Cameron is very familiar with the Palmetto state.
“It will be my first trip to Clemson, but not my first to South Carolina. I have been to Beaufort. My dad is from South Carolina and my grandparents still live in Beaufort,” said Dillard.
Coach Caldwell is recruiting the top lineman for the Tigers.
“He is a funny guy. He is a character. He will be up front with you which I like,” said Dillard.
The current offer list stands at five.
“Boiling Green, Eastern Michigan, Central Michigan, Western Michigan and Buffalo have offered,” said Dillard.
Expect that list to grow quickly over the next few months.
“I am hearing from Clemson, Michigan State, Indiana, West Virginia, Arkansas, Oregon, Iowa and Missouri,” said Dillard.
A number of schools are coming by to check on the Michigan standout.
“Oregon is coming by on Wednesday. Tomorrow Iowa and Missouri are coming by,” said Dillard.
Which team did Cameron pull for from South Carolina?
“Come on now, you have to go with Clemson. My granddad is a Clemson guy. My dad likes Clemson. I actually have a Clemson pillow,” said Dillard.
A few other visits are in the plans.
“I have been to Michigan State. I am going back to Michigan State on the 5th when they play Michigan. A couple of their coaches want me to come up and talk to coach D. I am going to West Virginia on February 11 and I will visit Indiana and Purdue in February,” said Dillard.
What will be important when Cameron decides on his college destination?
“The three A’s. It will be atmosphere, academics and athletics. I think Clemson has all three of those,” said Dillard.
There is no timeframe for a decision.
“I will just do it whenever I get that gut feeling. When I am at the school I want to be for the next four years,” said Dillard.
