Next step for four-star quarterback is to cut list to a final five

Apr 12, 2022 | 0 comments

In between unofficial visits to campuses across the country and high school baseball games this spring, Brookwood (Ga.) Snellville four-star quarterback Dylan Lonergan‍ is trying to find time in order to come up with a list of programs that will comprise his five finalists.

After Florida re-offered in early March, Lonergan visited campus at the end of the month.

"The highlight of the visit was spending time in the quarterback room with Coaches [Billy] Napier and [Ryan] O’Hara and touring the new facility," replied Lonergan when asked about the high point of his visit. "I was very impressed with Coach Napier and his staff. I love the fact that Coach Napier is so involved with the quarterbacks and the offense. Coach O’Hara does a great job as well. "

Napier and O'Hara were direct in their message to the 6-foot-1, 220-pound four-star.

"The coaches said they will continue to recruit me hard," said Lonergan. "They like the way I throw the ball. It looks easy coming out of my hand."

After visiting Gainesville, Lonergan visited two other national powers.

"I visited Alabama and Ohio State since my trip to Florida," explained Lonergan. "Two great programs with great football tradition and with great coaches and development as well. Development is very important to me and I think all these programs offer me that."

A visit to another SEC program is up next and he would like to get back to UF.

"I have a visit planned to South Carolina next week and then we will see," said Lonergan. "I would love to get back down to Florida. I just have to work around my baseball schedule. I loved speaking with the baseball coaches as well and touring the new stadium. There's great tradition there as well."

For him to make it back to Gainesville though will require him being able to fit in a trip to the Sunshine State around a busy baseball schedule.

In the next two and a half months he plans on having a leaderboard and then making a commitment.

"I am getting close to narrowing my list to five schools soon," said Lonergan. "My plan would be to take official visits to those five and commit in late summer before my senior year. I'm thankful for all of the opportunities for sure."

As for who will be on that top five, the family wasn't willing to name them just yet, but his father Dan Lonergan added, “I know he enjoyed his UF experience though.”

Lonergan is the No. 82 ranked prospect in the nation according to the On3 Consensus.
