Matt Dicken, RB, 5-11, 180, 4.4, Lower Cape May Regional HS
"No 1a offers as yet, but I've had a couple of 1aa offers, Villanova & Delaware both want me to play for them."
Who is actively recruiting you at this time?
"Schools actively recruiting me are PSU, Syracuse, Rutgers, So.Carolina, Wisconsin, Indiana & WVU."
Who are your favorites?
"No clear favorite yet, but I like all the schools I've seen so far. PSU & WVU both had great facilities and I liked the campus'. Syracuse Impressed me alot, good program as well as being a top academic school. I really like the campus and stadium at Rutgers. I'd like to see South Carolina too. All the coaches I've met have been great."
I've had some great camps in the last three months, so I saw a few schools then. I also took in a few junior days back in the spring. PSU, WVU , Maryland, Syracuse, Rutgers, Temple and Virginia.
Have you planned or set any official visits?
"I really liked the campus at Rutgers. I think the planned addition to the Hale Center will be great. I thought the whole area around there was pretty cool and It's really close to home."
Matt Dicken is one of the most underrated players in the east. A power runner with good vision and great speed, Dicken has such good hands that he often lines up at flanker for his high school team. The lack of Div 1A offer doesn't bother him.
"A lot of schools have said that they want to see my first couple of games so I'm really looking forward to the season. I'll see what happens then."
