Exclusive Video: Ryan Dillard Talks About His Switch To Southern Cal

Ryan Dillard of Buford (GA) talks about how he kept his options open after signing with Yale and by doing so he will be attending the University of Southern California to play football this fall (Dillard will enroll in summer school in June). Dillard is an under the radar player that did not get the acclaim by recruiting services that he thought his on field, academics and clean background warranted.

The biggest knock on Dillard in recruiting circles and with some schools was his size. When you watch him on film he plays so low that you really cannot detect his true height of 5’10”.

When asked about that Dillard said, “Yea I know. I now realize I didn’t have to play as low as I did and I’ll adjust at the next level, no problem”.

Well there you have it and no matter where you are you can hear Ryan Dillard making plays as a USC Trojan as the school has agreed to a new national radio deal as Joe Lucia of Awful Announcing reports.  Dillard and Detroit Lions All-Pro wide receiver Calvin “Megatron” Johnson, who played his college ball at Georgia Tech and his high school ball at Sandy Creek (GA), are cousins.

We’ll have more on Dillard’s trek to Southern Cal this week. Dillard is a prime example of one that handled their business on the playing field, in the classroom and on the recruiting trail despite all odds.
