The 6-1, 170-pound Dillon is rated a three-star prospect and is the No. 143 WR in the nation and the No. 24 player from the state of Mississippi.
Dillon chose the Rebels over offers from Virginia, Arkansas State, Kentucky, Memphis, Houston, Southern Miss, Tulane, Coastal Carolina, South Alabama, UCF and others.
The Rebel Walk asked the talented Dillon what made him choose the Rebels.
“I mean it’s home, and I feel like it’s the best fit for me.”
Jeremiah Dillon on why he chose the Rebels
Dillon is not just a star on the gridiron — he’s also a track star. He’s been clocked at 10.53 in the 100 meters and 21.45 in the 200 meters. He notched a second-place finish in the Mississippi 3A state meet in May in both the 100 (10.66) and 200 (21.57) meters. If you’re looking for speed on the perimeter, Dillon is definitely your guy!
Dillon attended Parklane Academy (Miss.) as a junior and notched 23 receptions, 380 yards and five TDs. He has transferred to Tylertown High School for his senior season.
We asked Dillon, who was recruited by wide receivers coach Derrick Nix, what he’s looking forward to at Ole Miss.
“Definitely looking forward to getting to meet the guys and get started with Coach (Derrick) Nix.”
Where the Rebs stand now
Dillon is the fourth Ole Miss commit since Friday. He joins four-star defensive lineman Jacarius Clayton who committed to the Rebels on Friday, three-star offensive lineman Preston Cushman who pledged to Lane Kiffin and Ole Miss on Saturday, and three-star offensive lineman Timi Gagophien who also committed Sunday.
