Canes offer 4-star OL

The Hurricanes are seeking their first offensive line commitment in the 2016 class, and they just offered another player at that position. Read on to learn about him as a prospect and to see what their chances are.

Miami offered Landon Dickerson earlier this week, according to Scout's Michael Clark.

At 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds, Dickerson is a four-star offensive line prospect from South Caldwell High in North Carolina.

Nike numbers from the spring:
27-inch vertical jump
43-foot power toss

Dickerson plays both tackle and guard at the prep level but projects best as an interior lineman at the college level. While he lacks elite level athleticism, he is very good laterally and is very strong. He shows the ability to dominate defenders at the point of attack and that is a big reason why he's being recruited nationally.

Some of his other offers are from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, North Carolina, and Tennessee so he's being recruited like one of the top offensive line prospects in the entire country.

He's already made several unofficial visits, including two each to South Carolina and Tennessee. He has official visits scheduled to Michigan and Auburn. The Canes were a bit late to the offer party here and their challenge now to stay in the game will be getting him on campus for an official visit later in the year.

Miami is still seeking their first offensive line commitment in a 2016 class that already has 22 players in it.
