Huskies Taking Interest In Dickerson

The Washington Huskies are always looking to upgrade their talent situation whenever they have a chance to do so. They have three players signed for 2014 - Quevyn Winters, Donaven Dorsey, and Tristan Etienne - and they may go the juco route again to round out their recruiting class.

Enter Trey Dickerson, a 6-foot-1, 178-pound point guard, a real quick guard that can beat players on the dribble and find guys in the right spots and is good in transition, according to the self-scout.

Where is Dickerson playing? He is averaging 20 points, nearly six assists and four rebounds a game at Williston State College in North Dakota after attending Price High School in Los Angeles, the alma mater of former UW player Tyreese Breshers.

"I was getting recruited out of high school but I had to go to prep school to raise my ACT two points," Dickerson told on Monday. Dickerson then went to God's Academy in Texas and then eventually signed with Murray State out of prep school over offers from Rutgers and Arkansas.

"I picked Murray State and I got there in the summertime and I really didn't like it so I went juco for a year to open my recruitment," Dickerson said. He will have three years to use up three years of eligibility when he shows up at a four-year school starting in the summer.

Right now Dickerson has offers from Nebraska, Iowa, Arkansas, Boise State, UAB, Western Kentucky, and Washington State. "I'm actually planning on taking a visit this weekend to Iowa.," he said, noting that he doesn't have any other visits set up yet.

The Huskies are just starting to recruit Dickerson heavily. "Coach Chills (Raphael Chillious) and I have been talking for a while," Dickerson said. "Coach Romar came to my game yesterday, actually."

The Tetons lost to North Dakota State College of Science 96-83 to finish out their season with a 27-6 record. Dickerson had 19 points on 7-15 shooting, including 4-7 from three, two assists, and four turnovers.

"I think I played pretty solid; we just came up short in the loss," said Dickerson. "It was pretty tough to see our season end like that but I think I played okay."

Did Dickerson get a chance to visit with the Washington head coach? "Coach Romar and I talked for about 20 minutes," he said. "Coach Chills said that coach Romar was supposed to call me today to talk about offering me and stuff like that. I guess he was really impressed with my game and I could help them out playing with Nigel (Williams-Goss) in the backcourt and running the offense a little bit when Nigel's out of the game.

"I'm definitely looking forward to talking with coach Romar today."

As of the publishing of this story, Dickerson and Romar had not spoken Monday night.

Dickerson has a connection to the Washington program. "I know Nigel and Jahmel Taylor from AAU," he said. "We also played against each other in high school. Nigel is like a real tall floor general. He just it done, finds guys in the right spots…a good player. Jahmel, I remember him from high school the most because we used to go at it. He's a real good scorer and can really shoot the ball from deep and stuff like that."

Dickerson has never been to Seattle, but hopes that changes soon. "I'm definitely looking forward to heading up there," he said.

UPDATE: learned through Dickerson very late Monday night after the story originally published that the Huskies have offered him a scholarship. Top Stories
