Somewhat unexpectedly, South Florida has lost an experienced piece of its passing attack.
In a text message late last week to Joey Knight of the Tampa Bay Times, Elkanah “Kano” Dillon confirmed that he has decided to transfer from the USF football program. “Just want to seek a better opportunity for myself,” Dillon wrote. “It’s all love for USF.”
The tight end is on track to graduate in May, which would leave him eligible to play immediately in 2018 for another FBS school. The upcoming season will be his final year of eligibility.
Last season, Dillon caught 11 passes for 119 yards. He finishes the Bulls portion of his career with 504 yards and four touchdowns on 28 receptions.
Of the 33 games Dillon played, the 6-5, 262-pound tight end started eight of those contests. Three of the starts came this past season.
