BEAVERTON, Ore. — Landon Dickerson is a young student-athlete of focus.
Whether it's knowing his educational career path, having a game plan to decide on a college or what field in which to work after football is over, the South Caldwell (N.C.) High School offensive lineman has it all mapped out.
Six schools remain on the list of potential landing spots for the Scout No. 1-rated offensive guard in the Tar Heel State, including Auburn, Florida State, Michigan, South Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Tech.
The reason for those programs remaining includes both football and academics as Dickerson plans to major in Engineering.
"Most of the schools in that mix are because of the education and football they provide for me," Dickerson told InsideTennessee.
"Definitely Tennessee with their engineering program really stands out to me. Then I know they have some really good recruiting classes. And, coach (Butch) Jones, he wins football games. I mean, you just look at his record. I think they're going to do something good in these next few years."
The Scout 300 member earned an invitation to The Opening and took full advantage of the opportunity last week. See what Dickerson said about the event at NIKE Headquarters and his recruitment by clicking play on the exclusive InsideTennessee video below:
