"It was fun," said Dickson. "It was interesting. Tech has a lot of interesting places I didn't know they had, like the recreation center."
Georgia Tech quarterbacks coach Brian Bohannon is recruiting Dickson for the Yellow Jackets. Bohannon actually attended Griffin. Dickson projects as either a defensive end or linebacker at the college level. He doesn't really have a preference and would just like to play whichever helps him and his team the most. Georgia Tech told him he could play either.
"Their new defensive coordinator has come in from Virginia (Al Groh) and is running a 3-4 scheme. They said they could use me as either a linebacker or a defensive end. Coach Johnson told me they could use me in the new defense and that they really like my highlight tape."
Speaking of the 3-4 scheme that Tech now runs; what does Xzavier think of it, as other schools recruiting him like Alabama and Georgia run the scheme as well? "I think it's a good scheme," he said. "A lot of great NFL teams run it and it works out for them. If it works there, why not in college?"
Dickson also said that Georgia Tech now looks a lot better to him than they did before. They aren't just the only school that looks good to him, though. In fact, the Yellow Jacket staff might have their work cut out for themselves in order to convince Dickson to come and play for them. He currently holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Arkansas, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Mississippi State, Purdue, and Texas Tech. In July, he named Alabama his leader and not much has changed since then.
"I'm leaning towards Alabama," said Dickson. "Florida, Auburn, and Georgia are up there close behind."
The visit to Atlanta was Dickson's first of the spring. He is planning on going to Athens for Georgia's Junior Day on the 27th. But as of now, there is nothing else planned for the highly recruited prospect. When it comes to deciding on which school he'll attend, there is one thing that stands out to Xzavier.
"The number one thing is how fast I can get on to the field."
