"It was really good. I really liked what I saw. It's a nice community and nice place," stated Dickie to PonyStampede.com about his junior day experience.
A 5-10, 212 pound outside linebacker, Dickie had 49 tackles and 3 sacks for Westfield High School in the Houston area. Currently he has no offers, but is hearing from SMU, Houston, Texas Tech, LSU, Baylor, and Michigan.
An outstanding student, Dickie shined on the football field in his first year of playing varsity football. Currently he benches 305 pounds, squats 425, and has a 4.62-forty. Scouts have said "Though on the small end of the scale, Dickie is super-fast, aggressive and a sure-handed tackler. He hits with force and finishes plays off without the need for help."
SMU will not be the only junior day he attends. He has also gone to Houston's and is planning on going to Texas Tech and possibly Michigan's.
"I need to have a good learning environment. I need to go to a program that is good and stable. I also don't want to go to a place that is to big or to small," said Dickie. "Their (SMU) defense has a lot of young players, but they seem to really have great coaches. I think I would be able to come in and help try to turn things around. I want to be part of something like that."
Westfield finished 5-4 on the season playing in 5A Region II District 13. They struggled down the stretch losing their last three games.
"In the beginning of the season I played outside linebacker, but then when districts rolled around I moved to the inside," said Dickie. "I don't really care what position I play, but I do like insider backer because you are the leader of the defense."
Dickie plans on majoring in something related to science and technology, he is not sure where he will be camping this fall. He reports the Mustangs are in his top three and that he would like to make a decision before his senior season starts.
"It would be nice to get it out of the way before the season starts. That way I'm not thinking about it," stated Dickie.
