Dickerson seeks release from Florida

New Florida coach Mike White has tried to keep a talented class in the fold, but Noah Dickerson has decided to look around.

Florida had one of the more talented recruiting classes in the country locked up before Billy Donovan decided to leave Gainesville for the Oklahoma City Thunder. Now that recruiting class has taken a bit of a hit.

Four-star center Noah Dickerson from Montverde (Fla.) Academy asked for his release on Tuesday, Scout.com has confirmed.

The 6-foot-8 and 250 pound Dickerson is one of the more skilled low post players in the class. He has good feet, excellent hands, and a nice touch out to 10 feet. This was considered a big coup for Donovan when he was able to lure in Dickerson.

Originally Dickerson committed early to Georgetown only to re-open his recruitment. When that happened schools such as Virginia, Michigan, LSU, Georgia Tech, and others made a play in his recruitment before he selected the Gators.

At this point there is no specific knowledge about who Dickerson is going to consider, and his release hasn't yet gone through. However it is safe to assume that Dickerson is going to be a very sought after player once everything becomes official.
