"It'll all come down to what is best for me. When the time comes around I'll figure it all out. I'll take my visits and figure it out from there. It'll have to sit right with me."
When I asked Clifton he told me that he'll probably take all his visits before deciding. Dickson is both strong and quick and is noted by Insiders as being one of the top defensive linemen in the south.
