Dickerson talks recent visits

There aren't many better scorers on the low block than Noah Dickerson. Now the four-star post prospect is look at all of his college options.

Four-star post Noah Dickerson had an excellent summer with the Georgia Stars. The North Atlanta (Ga) standout showed that at 6-foot-8 he is one of the best post scorers in the 2015 class, and recently he made a pair of unofficial visits.

During July is when Dickerson played his best basketball, and coaches definitely took notice of that.

"I felt that July was great," said Dickerson. "I developed as a player and I think I showed all aspects of my game. I think I really flourished with my footwork around the paint and scoring down low. I also showed off my jump shot and my free throw stroke. Overall I think July was my best month."

Since returning from the AAU season, Dickerson has been in constant contact with a whole host of college coaches.

"I have been hearing a lot from Alabama, Michigan, Virginia, Georgetown, Michigan, Ohio State, Xavier, Vanderbilt who just offered, Florida, and Harvard," said Dickerson.

Most recently he made unofficial visits to Ohio State and Xavier. The two Ohio based schools impressed Dickerson quite a bit.

"The facilities at Ohio State were great," said Dickerson of the Buckeyes. "They are all new and it was just great. Everything about it was great. I love Coach (Thad) Matta. He is a great guy and seems like he would be a great mentor. All of the assistant coaches were great to and I loved the visit."

He continued about Xavier, "Xavier kind of reminded of my private school I used to go to. It is totally different than some schools because it is all about basketball. The arena was really nice, and I saw their tradition with power forwards which I really liked. They did a great job of showing me the campus and I loved it as well."

Now three other schools are next on the hit list for Dickerson to visit.

"I know I plan on going to Virginia, Florida, and Miami," Dickerson explained.

When it comes to Virginia, the Cavaliers have been recruiting Dickerson for a while, and he has been on the campus before, but now he wants to see exactly what the school is all about.

"I'm trying to meet the players and the whole coaching staff," said Dickerson of UVa. "Also I want to see the campus. I saw some of the campus when I was at NBA Camp, but I want to go on a tour and see what they have to offer."

Dickerson is a four-star prospect and No. 64 overall prospect in the class of 2015.
