Penn State fans can now rest easy, because the Lions have finally offered Dorin Dickerson, the standout receiver from Imperial (Pa.) West Allegheny. The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder has been collecting offers left and right, and a little over a week and a half ago Dickerson gained his offer from the Nittany Lions.
Its definitely a school that I want to check out, Ill see what they have to offer, Dickerson said. I like the coaching staff at Penn State.
Dickerson's uncle, Ron Dickerson, is a former assistant coach with the Nittany Lions. His cousin, Ron Dickerson Jr., starred at State College High before heading on to Arkansas and ultimately the NFL. Ron Jr. is now an assistant coach at Louisana-Monroe.
Penn State is not alone in its quest to land Dorin Dickerson as he picked up a handful of offers recently, and may add a few more by weeks end.
Dickerson has now received offers from Penn State, Ohio State, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, West Virginia, Eastern Michigan, Rutgers, Wisconsin, LSU, Pittsburgh, Boston College, North Carolina, Connecticut, Michigan, Purdue and Akron.
In 2004, Dickerson ran for 1,065 yards and 13 touchdowns on 133 carries. He caught 26 passes for 517 yards and eight touchdowns. He was also West Alleghenys leading tackler.
