Dickey comments on Chapel Hill visit

Junior Ra'Sean Dickey returned home on Sunday after an enjoyable unofficial visit to North Carolina this weekend.

The 6-9, 240-pound post player from the class of 2004 made the two-plus hour drive with his coach to Chapel Hill in order to spend some time on campus and with the current Tar Heels.

"I had a good time -- I had fun," Dickey said Sunday evening, speaking highly of the UNC players and assistant coach Fred Quartlebaum, with whom he spent a significant amount of time.

Dickey sat with the team (as well as 2003 commitment Reyshawn Terry) at Kenan Stadium during Saturday's football game against Georgia Tech -- but the biggest highlight was the pickup games.

"We played three times and I went up against [Sean] May, Will Johnson and the big seven footer [Damion Grant]."

Dickey said he held his own against May and Johnson.

"Well, I did pretty well [against May], but I think he was tired because it was the third game," he said. "I scored on him some and he scored on me too."

As for his matchup with Johnson?

"He can shoot," Dickey remarked. "I scored on him too though, I played well."

But the player that really stood out the most to Dickey was UNC freshman Damion Grant.

"He was tough. He got me pretty well," Dickey said. "He blocked some of my shots and he scored too. I was really impressed with him."

Dickey is high up on the North Carolina staff's target list in a class loaded with talent, but a scholarship offer has not yet been made.

"No, they haven't offered me yet," he said. "I don't know. I liked the visit, though, I had a good time."

Meanwhile, Dickey's school list remains at seven, with no clear leader.

"It's still Maryland, North Carolina, Florida, Duke, Kentucky and Kansas -- oh, and Tennessee," he said.

Dickey begins his junior season in a couple of months, as he will try to find ways to improve upon a dominating sophomore campaign at Marlboro County (S.C.) that included averages of 22 points and 16 rebounds per game.
