Dickerson Wowed by Visit

The San Mateo (Calif.) Serra defensive end, Matt Dickerson, enjoys his weekend trip to UCLA...

San Mateo (Calif.) Serra defensive end Matt Dickerson (6-5, 270), got an offer from UCLA last week and then took an unofficial visit to Westwood this past weekend.

"My visit went really well," said Dickerson. "I absolutely loved it."

It was the fourth school that Dickerson has visited this spring, after trips to Colorado, San Jose State and Washington.

"The campus was gorgeous," said Dickerson. "All the academic buildings are beautiful and the facilities were as well."

Dickerson got to meet with defensive line coach Angus McClure and head coach Jim Mora while in Westwood, among others.

"I got to meet all of the coaches really," said Dickerson.

After he visited the campus, Dickerson headed over to the Rose Bowl for the Bruins' Spring Game.

"The Rose Bowl is amazing," said Dickerson. "I loved the spring game and just the overall atmosphere."

Dickerson got to speak to a couple of current defensive lineman, as well as Datone Jones, who just a couple days prior, was drafted in first round of the NFL Draft.

"I was able to talk to the whole defensive line and I talked to their two defensive ends and how they're getting ready and then to (Jones) about getting drafted," said Dickerson.

All in all, Dickerson had high praise for the trip.

"I'd give it a 10 honestly," said Dickerson. "UCLA is definitely in the mix for me."

Next up for Dickerson is a visit to Arizona, which he'll visit starting Thursday.

Academically, Dickerson has a 3.1 and plans to take the SAT this spring.

He's also tentatively planning to attend the Oakland NFTC next month.
