Denton Guyer coach confirms Kevin Dillman, 5-star QB from California, is enrolled at the school
We’ve known for a few weeks Guyer was possibly getting a big-time quarterback as a move-in from California, and on Monday, Kevin Dillman started school at Guyer after moving from La Mirada, Calif.
The guy has a really interesting story. He’s from Sweden and played on the Sweden national team as a 13-year-old with 18- and 19-year-olds, moved to California and became one of the top prospects in the country. Now, he’s moved to Guyer zone and enrolled at Guyer.
“It’s his first day of school,” Guyer head coach John Walsh said. “There’s a kid by the name of Kevin Dillman here, and that’s all I know. I can confirm he is enrolled at Guyer High School right now.”
Dillman has offers from just about everyone you could imagine — 16 in all — including schools like UCLA, Clemson and national champion Florida State. He’s 6-4, 220 pounds and will be a senior next season. If you watch his highlight videos, you see his prowess throwing the ball as well as his athleticism, including several kickoff return touchdowns. He missed much of his junior season at La Mirada due to an achilles injury.
Dillman could replace Jerrod Heard, who is set to sign with Texas on Wednesday after winning back-to-back Class 4A Division I state titles. Heard was a three-year starter at Guyer after J.W. Walsh started for three years before heading to Oklahoma State.
According to 247sports.com, he’s a 5-star recruit and is nationally the second-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the Class of 2015, one spot ahead of Allen star Kyler Murray.
Walsh said they will file his paperwork with the UIL and expect to have his move-in approved in the next few weeks.
