Stopping through on his way to visit Florida State, Dickerson said it was a great opportunity to see Auburn once again and also get a feel for what Grimes is all about both on and off the field.
“He’s just a really great dude,” Dickerson said. “He seems like he would be a really great coach. Just sitting down with him and talking about his beliefs and how he wants his players to be, we’re kind of on the same page with that.”
Like most prospects Dickerson is hoping to have the opportunity to play early, something that could be an option with the Tigers in the coming years. While that’s something that has Auburn among his top group, the South Caldwell High standout said there’s plenty more to like about Gus Malzahn’s program.
“Really it’s the coaches, the football they play there, and the education,” Dickerson said. “Those are the three big things that stand out.”
Planning to take several more visits this summer before beginning his official visit schedule this fall, Dickerson said he has already set visits to Michigan on Sept. 12 for the Oregon State game and to Auburn for Nov. 28. That has him on campus for the annual Iron Bowl game against Alabama, something he said he’s already excited about.
“That’s kind of a bucket list game for me,” Dickerson said. “I know it’s going to be a hyped game so I’m hoping it’s going to live up to its name.”
Hoping to set the rest of his official visits in the coming months, Dickerson said he has no timetable for a decision.
