UCLA Goes After Another in Georgia

Marietta (Ga.) Lassiter wide receiver Juwan Dickey, and No. 1 target for UCLA quarterback commit Eddie Printz, is starting to reel in some more offers after leading his team in receptions this past season.

"I‘ve gotten offers from UCLA, Oklahoma St., South Florida, and Southern Miss," Dickey said. "Alabama and Tennessee are also talking to me a lot and sending me a bunch of stuff."

Dickey is part of a recent surge of big time talent from Georgia, and one school on his list, UCLA, has already claimed a couple of his teammates, in 2012 prospect Kenny Orjioke, and 2013 quarterback Printz. The Bruins also just received a verbal commitment from another Georgia product, 2013 running back Keyante Green.

Dickey says Orjioke and Printz have been in his ear somewhat about becoming a Bruin.

"They're both telling me they like it out there, and they want me to come out and visit with them, see if I like it out there," Dickey said. "I should probably visit during the summer or something. That'd be an unofficial visit, and then maybe I'd take an official during the school year."

Dickey's primary recruiter at UCLA has been offensive line coach Adrian Klemm, who's been pitching Dickey on the geographical advantages of UCLA.

"He's a cool dude," Dickey said. "I like him a lot. He's just telling me that the weather out there is great, so I'm looking forward to seeing it."

At this point, Dickey doesn't have any leader, and isn't expecting to make a decision until his senior year, saying that he wants to wait to see all the offers he gets before narrowing things down. Right now, he only has one other visit planned.

"I'm probably going to be visiting Oklahoma St. in June because they're having a little camp," Dickey said. "I think it's their Junior Day."

It may be difficult to pry Dickey out of SEC country, though, because he said one big factor in his decision will be his family, which is located in Florida.

"I want my family to be able to see me play," Dickey said. "That's going to be a big factor for me."
