Scout.com Take:

Dickson is a stats machine, putting up record-breaking numbers as a junior. He also stepped up on the big stage with a huge game to help his team capture a state championship. Dickson is a very natural pass-catcher and route-runner. He gets open often, but also gets open down the field to make big plays. Shows good body control, hands and concentration, out-jumping or just simply out-playmaking defensive backs, who sometimes are even in double coverage.- GP

Dickson has tremendous body control, elusiveness with the ball in his hands and his concentration is exceptional to go along with fantastic hands.
