"Arizona is a school that I have watched for a long time on TV," said Dickson. "I have always liked their style of play. They also have a great Business school there I am real interested in."

He is being recruited by Coach Tui.

Edward has a top four of USC, Michigan, LSU, and Arizona. He also lists Colorado, Washington, and UCLA. Dickson claims no favorite but does admit a fondness for the Trojans. "USC is the closest to home and my Parents kind of want me to go there, but they say it is my choice."

'SC is the only one of his top seven not to officially offer. "I think it is because they are waiting on my transcripts, but I'm not sure."

How many offers does he have? "I couldn't even name them all to you. I know I got four new ones just this week."

All schools like him at tight end besides CU and Boston College (wide receiver). "I like playing tight end but I can also play other positions - that is fine."

Edward is also a standout basketball player and says that schools are open to the idea of him playing both sports. "'SC told me I can play both. Most schools say I can."

He attended the USC Junior Day but did not make any camps this summer due to basketball tournaments.

Dickson views football differently than a lot of other players. "When I play football, I just have fun. I don't see it as a job. I go out there and run my routes like no one is on me."

He carries a 3.0 core GPA and is awaiting his SAT score. Edward would like to major in Business.
