Matt Dicken, RB, 5-11, 180, 4.4, Lower Cape May Regional HS
In the past few years South Jersey has become a major recruiting ground for teams throughout the nation. This year teams throughout the nation are traveling to South Jersey to see an outstanding running back out of Cape May County. So far the list includes Michigan State, Iowa, South Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Syracuse, Penn State, Rutgers, Temple and Duke to name a few.
The object of their attention is Matt Dicken a running back with 4.4 speed and just about every skill you can find in a runner. Matt can run with power, use break away speed, catch the ball out of the backfield, run effectively after the catch and even double as a WR on fly patterns!
It is not surprising that last year Matt gained close to 1500 yards and scored 15 TDs on his way to First Team All County, First Team All Conference and Second Team All South Jersey.
Early on Matt is wide open but is looking to stay on the East Coast. "I could go to a school from South Carolina to UConn", he noted.
Also a wrestler and a 100 meter man Matt Dicken looks to become one of the most heavily recruited players in South Jersey this season.
Keep checking back. In the next few weeks we'll be bringing online the recruiting tapes of this excellent prospect.
