For Dickson It's USC and....Some Others

<b>Edward Dickson</b> from Bellflower, Calif. High School is a sleeper no more. With offers from schools all over the country TheInsiders No. 10 ranked tight end in the country has his home choice nailed but, should he decide to leave California, a whole new list emerges. <br><br>

"If I stay in California it will be USC," Edward Dickson said. "But if I leave the state it could be a whole lot of other schools, mainly Oklahoma and Michigan."

Dickson is a 6 foot 5, 230-pound four-star prospect who said he, "has more offers then he can count" may take an official visit this weekend. "I'm not sure where though," he said. "We have a bye-week and Arizona wants me to come see them, I haven't decided yet. I'll probably take the rest of my visits after the season, I want to see as many schools as possible before I decide." Arizona takes on Wisconsin this Saturday.

Michigan has always been at or near the top of the list for Edwards and the interest appears to be mutual. On the first day coaches were able to contact recruits he received a special call. "The head coach, (Lloyd) Carr called me to let me know how much they want me," Edwards said. "I talked to Coach (Ron) English also just the other day. They are recruiting me for tight end."

Dickson isn't limited to the tight end postion, however. "I play a lot of wide receiver too," he said. "And I play defensive end." With 4.6 speed in the 40 Dickson may be just a tad slow to play the wide-out spot in college, but with his size he'll have the tools to be a speedy tight end or rush defensive end.

New Bellflower head coach Derek Brown has instituted a new offense for the Buccaneers, one that Dickson has taken a liking to. "We don't run the option as much as last year," he said. "We're throwing the ball a lot more, which I like." Bellflower is off to a 1-1 record and are coming off an impressive 42-13 victory over Pacifica of Garden Grove. Dickson reports six receptions for two touchdowns in the game. He sat out Bellflower's first game against Trabuco Hills, a narrow 15-12 loss for the Buccaneers.

Bellflower squares off against San Dimas this Friday.
