40 time: 4.6
From: Bellflower, California
High School: Bellflower
"I actually didn't play in the first game of the year because my family had been on vacation and when I got back I didn't get in enough practice time to play," explained Dickson. "We lost to a division one school by two points so I was real proud of my team since we are division six. I had two catches at tight end for 63 yards and a touchdown. Then I had one catch at receiver for 15 yards that was a touchdown. We won 42-12. On defense, I was at outside linebacker and I had three sacks and at least 20 tackles."
Despite his defensive prowess, Edward thinks he'll still be a tight end in college. "I played at defensive end last year but now they moved me to outside 'backer. I have seen over the years going up against other tight ends how much faster I am than them."
Dickson has heard from a ton of schools thus far in September. "USC has called a few times. I also got calls from LSU, Oklahoma, Michigan, Washington and Oregon. That is all I can think of right now."
He says USC has been the most consistent with their calls and they are recruiting the hardest, currently. "If I am going to stay in-state, I will probably go to USC. If I go out-of-state it would probably be to Michigan, Oklahoma, or Arizona. Those schools know how to use their tight ends. I have written offers from all of them."
Does he still have any interest in Colorado?
"Yeah, but I haven't heard from them lately."
Dickson says he was thinking of taking a visit to Oklahoma this week since he has a bye but that did not work out. "They talked to my coach on Wednesday and we were thinking about setting it up but I can't. I will probably schedule all of my visits after the season. I will probably start setting them up next week."
Bellflower takes on San Dimas High School next Friday.
Dickson carries a 3.0 core GPA and says he scored an 800 on his SAT, but will re-take it in October.
