Huskers offer JUCO PG

Tim Miles thinks he might have found his distributor for years to come in Williston State College point guard Trey Dickerson.

Nebraska head coach Tim Miles coached at North Dakota State for six seasons, he has no problem with the Peace Garden State.

On Saturday, Miles and crew offered junior college point guard Trey Dickerson (6-foot-1, 175 pounds), at Williston State College in Williston, North Dakota.

Per the school's athletic website, Dickerson is averaging 19.4 points, 5.8 assists, 3.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals for the Tetons.

"I just feel really blessed. I have been basically just been trying to play consistent and to see it paying off, it feels great," said Dickerson.

Dickerson has scholarships offers from Florida International, Fordham, Western Kentucky and Boise State. Teams like Arkansas, Iowa, and Arizona State are also showing interest.

The point guard will have three seasons to play after bouncing around the past few years.

Per Rob Howe of HawkeyeInsider.com:
Dickerson spent last season at God's Academy in Texas doing post-graduate work. He committed to Murray State from there and attended summer classes at the school before deciding it wasn't the best fit for him. He then chose Williston for a year.

By virtue of enrolling at Murray, Dickerson became subjected to the NCAA's 4-2-4 transfer rule. He said he's on track to graduate from Williston in May thereby giving him three years to play at his next four-year school.

"Most schools thought I had two years, but when they find out I have three years, it definitely makes them more excited," said Dickerson. "Coach Miles and Coach Smith say that I really bring that playmaking ability to an team. They feel that I'm a quick guard who could run their offense and breakdown guys. They basically would be bringing me in as a guy who could make plays for the scorers.

"Coach Miles feels like they are a good point guard and solid big man away from being a NCAA tournament team."

Dickerson was asked what he's looking for most in his future school.

"I really just want a strong relationship with the coaching staff and a good situation where the program is on the rise," said the JUCO point guard. "I want to go to a place where I can play a huge role in helping win games."

Dickerson says the recruiting process is starting to become a distraction and that he would like to make a decision in February. He plans to set up an official visit with the Huskers "ASAP."
