    A little concerned with those 14 picks but kid has great size for being 17 years young.

    Yep. The stats do not wow you, but I actually like Dillon quite a bit as a prospect, probably moreso than Bart Houston. If we end up with either, fine by me.

    We should have no issues appealing to California QBs this cycle because most teams are filled up from last year or this year already.

    A Cali kid with two offers from Ohio schools, but no offers from Pac 10 schools?

    Dillon is working with George Whitfield, the QB coach that worked with Roethlisburger during his suspension and with Cam Newton to prepare for the draft. The offers are likely the result of connections Whitfield has with those programs.

    So you're saying CU should make the $25,000 check out to George Whitfield. Got it, somebody remind Bohn to write "Recruiting Services" in the memo line so it's on the up and up.

    Is it just me, or does a 6'5" qb seem out of place in the duckies offense?

    So that makes it 3 out of the big 4 QBs were at the Junior Day. I have to assume that's a plus.

    Dillon is an interesting prospect, offers from Florida State and Ohio State, but not much else especially local? Weird.

    Looks like he's lost his mojo of late.

    According to AZ Dillon made an unofficial visit to CU yesterday and according to scout he picked up an offer from CU.

    We seem to be in really good shape for Dillon.

    AZ has had some good scoop on him lately.

    Something about Dillon's recruitment is very fishy to me.

    It's weird that he's a Socal QB with zero offers from any Socal schools, yet has offers from places like Florida State and Ohio State.

    Either way, I could care less who fails to recruit him if we can sign him. He's a project, but probably imo has the highest ceiling of any of the QBs we're after.

    The interviews with different sites give very different pictures of his recruitment. Much more different than usual.

    Visited over the weekend. Loved it.

    http://recruiting.scout.com/2/1065819.html

    Of note is that his good friend Erik Magnusen, the 4* OT that CU has also offered, visited CU along with Shane. No update on Erik yet, though.

    Got some scoop that CU is the leader after Dillon's recent visit.

    "Liked the coaches and loved the campus (suprise). They have family in Colorado and Shane's dad skis in Colorado so his dad would like him to go to CU. Didn't sound like he was seriously considering any of the offers back east."

    Cross your fingers.
