West Virginia completed another double dip on Thursday when Will Johnson and Karl Joseph committed…
Mike's Take: WVU DB commit
What to Like: Kimlon Dillon (who goes by K.J.) is a talented defensive back prospect from Apopka High in central Florida. At 6-foot-1 and 185 pounds, Dillon played both safety and outside linebacker at the prep level so he brings some versatility to the position. He has enough athleticism to be a BCS safety prospect and also has a big enough frame and a physical enough style of play to end up being an outside linebacker down the road. He is a big hitter and can make a lot of plays near the line of scrimmage. What may concern you: Dillon doesn't have great straight ahead speed and lacks elite level athleticism for a major college DB prospect. That's why many believe he'll end up being an outside 'backer in college. If that's the case, while he has the frame to do it, you wonder how much weight he'll be able to gain because he's only 185 now, which is on the small side for a major college linebacker prospect. He was never a true difference maker in high school, either. Bottom Line: West Virginia is getting one of the top safety prospects in central Florida, one who was recruited like a solid three-star prospect. He turned down BCS offers from schools like Cincinnati, USF, Kentucky, Purdue, Louisville, and Indiana. He gives the Mountaineers another quality skill position player from the state of Florida.
