"Recruiting is getting pretty old," said Rickerson. "I just want to take my visits this fall and after the season and the biggest thing I am looking for is playing time. So I will be watching the teams closely."
Rickerson camped this summer at Florida and Auburn. The UF camp was back in June. He just got back from AU.
"Auburn was a good camp. I was the defensive MVP. I like everything about the Tigers. They have great coaches, facilities, players, and they seem to really want me. They are gonna be in it in the end. I am visiting them (officially) for the Iron Bowl versus Alabama (11-19)."
So who else is still in the hunt?
"I really like Florida and the new coach (Urban Meyer). They are changing their defense and will be playing a lot more of man-to-man.
"Penn State is a young team with talent and I would love to play for coach (Joe) Paterno. That would be nice. I am going to visit them (officially) when they play Ohio State (10-8)."
Rickerson, rated at the No. 17 cornerback in the nation according to Scout.com, was all over the field as a junior last season. On offense, he finished the year with four touchdowns receiving and one on the ground. Defensively, he had 62 tackles, eight interceptions, and two defensive touchdowns. He also made a big impact on special teams, scoring two touchdowns and blocking three punts. He was a 2nd team All-State pick on defense following the season. He also averaged 22 PPG in hoops as a junior and was a regional qualifier in the long jump event as a sophomore.
