One Texas running back just returned from taking an unofficial trip to Arkansas State University this past weekend.
Speedy runner Everett Dickerson learned a lot during his trip to Jonesboro and apparently Gus Malzahn and his coaching staff left an outstanding impression.
"It was great there," Dickerson told AStateNation.com Sunday afternoon. "I really enjoyed myself while I was up there."
Dickerson admits not know much about Arkansas State prior to the visit, but left ASU with the Red Wolves one of his top favorites.
"It was a lot better than I expected it to be," Dickerson said. "Jonesboro is a nice size town, the people are great, they really love their football there. They gave me a great outlook of the campus and how they treat their players at Arkansas State."
Dickerson likes Malzahn's vision and passion for the Red Wolf Football program.
"He has a plan to make Arkansas State one of the top mid major programs in the country," Dickerson said. "He is a great coach and has put together a great coaching staff. Hopefully I may get a chance to play for him, you never know."
Dickerson was also impressed with ASU's academic programs.
"I didn't realize that ASU's Electrical Engineering programs rates high up there with Texas and Texas A&M," Dickerson said. "I got a chance to visit with a Dean about their successes in the classroom."
Dickerson currently has two offers, one from Arkansas State and one from SMU. He plans on making a trip Dallas in the next month to visit the Mustang Football Program.
Dickerson is a 5-foot-11, 165-pound running back who has 4.4 speed. He rushed for over 800 yards last fall and scored 10 touchdowns for his Atlanta Rabbit Football team.
Dickerson's older brother Tavarian Dickerson is currently a running back at Utah State.
