Canton, Mich., offensive lineman Cameron Dillard is the lone Florida commitment officially visiting UF for the South Carolina game.
This weekend will be Dillard’s third trip to Gainesville and he still has one thing left on his to-do list.
“I’ve pretty much done everything,” Dillard said. “The only thing I haven’t seen is a game. So I’m fired up. I haven’t heard the 92,000 roaring, so I’m looking forward to it. Two great teams going at it this weekend and I couldn’t be more excited.”
Dillard will be joined by his close friend David Dawson, the nation’s No. 1 offensive guard who decommitted from Michigan this past Sunday and is also officially visiting this weekend.
“I can’t wait to show him around campus,” Dillard said. “Max Garcia is our host and he’s become a good friend of mine since we met at Friday Night Lights. So it’s gonna be fun to be down there with David and share that experience with one of my best friends. Hopefully I can get him to join me.”
Dillard committed to Florida on April 9, two days after attending the Orange & Blue Debut. He grew a Gator fan in North Carolina.
“When coach Muschamp gave me an opportunity to play for the Gators, I jumped right on it,” Dillard said. “I couldn’t thank him enough for giving me that opportunity as well as the rest of the coaching staff for having the belief in me that I’ll be able to get the job done.”
The 6-foot-3, 290-pounder, rated a four-star recruit by ESPN, has been blown away by Florida’s 2012 season thus far.
“I can’t say enough about how impressed I am,” Dillard said. “Coach Davis, the offensive coach, he’s done great things for the O-line this year. They’re going to continue to do great things and I’m just so glad to be a part of that next year. Coach Muschamp and the team are definitely on the way to a National Championship.”
