Schools tracking Dickerson

Numerous schools are taking a close look at 2015 prospect Noah Dickerson.

One of the more impressive players at the Elite 32 and Best of the South was low post prospect Noah Dickerson. The 2015 center got a lot done, and he did so in front of a whole host of college coaches.

"July is going great," said Dickerson. "I am glad to be back playing with my team and teammates. I missed them during June, and it has just been a lot of fun."

At around 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, Dickerson has a great ability to score on the low block. He went against some of the top defensive players in the country and still was able to get buckets. Also he is a skilled passer and someone with a good feel for the game.

With that skillset, it is no surprise that numerous college coaches have been tracking his every move.

"Michigan, Georgetown, Virginia, Georgia, and Georgia Tech are some of the main ones who have been to every one of my games," said Dickerson.

One school that has clearly made him a priority is Michigan. The Wolverines were a presence at his games, and continue to be very involved in his recruitment.

"Michigan is a great school academically," said Dickerson. "It is a big school and I like it a lot. The really like me and my post game. I went up there for a visit for their elite camp and I had a lot of fun. They said they would be watching me a lot, and they have kept their word."

Another school that has been at nearly every single game of Dickerson's has been Virginia. The ACC school is clearly hoping to keep him in the region, and Dickerson likes what they have to offer.

"Virginia is another great academic school," said Dickerson. "Coach (Ron) Sanchez and Coach (Tony) Bennett are great coaches, but more importantly they are great guys. Virginia is also in a great area and I like them a lot."

For now Dickerson is taking things slow in his recruitment and has no more visits planned. Still he does have a good idea of what he is looking for in a college.

"I pay attention to the other guys they are recruiting to see who they want, not only in my class, but the other classes as well," said Dickerson. "I want to know who I would be playing with if they stay. Also I want to go somewhere with great academics, and I like for style of play. Do they play inside-out or not."

Currently Dickerson is the No. 13 center and the No. 60 player overall in the class of 2015.
