Bobcat FB recruit: Dillon Abell

I have heard that the Montana football coaching staff is recruiting Dillon Abell of Torrance high school in Torrance California. Dillon is primarily being recruited as a corner back prospect but could also be considered an athlete prospect. For Torrance Abell played running back Safety, corner back , inside line backer, and return man.

Abell was named 2009 Pioneer League All-League 2nd Team Running Back. He had a total of 502 rushing yard on 66 attempts, 5 touch downs and a single receiving catch on offence. On the defensive side of the ball this past year he totaled 32 solo tackles, 2 assists 1 sacks and 1 interception.

Abel runs a 4.55 in the 40 yard sprint, 4.4 in the 20 yard shuttle and a 32 inch vertical.

Like a lot of the football athletes, Abell is an accomplished track athlete with personal bests of 11.94 in the 100 yard dash, 23.84 in the200 meters, 5′-6″ in the high jump, 17′ 4″ in the long jump and 31′ 8″ in the triple jump.

Currently Idaho State, Montana State, Northern Arizona, Northern Colorado, San Diego State and Utah State are showing the most interest in Abell.

    Dillon Abell has proven to be a monster this year on both sides of the ball.

    In 2010, Dillon played both running back and linebacker. He had 115 carries for 737 yards and 12 touchdowns. On defense he had an amazing 175 tackles. 108 solo, 67 assists, 4 forced fumbles, 3 pass break-ups and 1 sack. He led the league in tackles and broke the school record for tackles in a single season. According to MaxPreps.com, Dillon is ranked #3 in the state and #18 in the country for tackles by linebackers.

    The kid has a motor! He will be a great addition to the Bobcat family.
