DD = Done Deal: Dickerson to Pitt

Imperial (Pa.) West Allegheny wide receiver Dorin Dickerson (6-2, 205, 4.50) announced Thursday at his press conference, that he has officially committed to the University of Pittsburgh over Michigan.

The "Keystone State" standout had received offers from Florida, Tennessee, Toledo, Virginia, Cincinnati, Michigan State, Penn State, Ohio State, Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, West Virginia, Eastern Michigan, Rutgers, Wisconsin, LSU, Boston College, North Carolina, Connecticut, Michigan, Purdue, and Akron in addition to Pitt.

"I'm committed to the University of Pittsburgh," Dickerson said this evening, "I sorta knew all along I was going to go there, but I wanted to check out some other schools."

"I actually committed on Monday around 3:30," Dickerson verified. "I went down and saw all the coaches and then talked to Coach Wannstedt and told him that I was going to be a Pittsburgh Panther."

As a junior last season, Dickerson ran 1,065 yds on 130 carries with 13 TDs. He added 25 receptions for 517 yds and eight TDs and contributed 48 tackles and three interceptions on defense.

The rising senior is projected to be a wide receiver at the next level, despite starring at running back at West Allegheny SHS. His commitment to Pitt, reunites him with best friend CJ Davis and Tyler Palko, two former West Allegheny standouts

"I've got some great vision on the field and I'm good at seeing holes open up in the offense when I play running back," Dickerson said in an early interview with Scout.com. "I've got some good size too. I just want to get in the best shape that I possibly can for next season and work on my speed and strength."

Dorin Dickerson is the fifth official commitment to the Pittsburgh program joining Nate Nix, John Malecki, Scott Corson and Dan Loheyde.
