Strong Interest for Prep Point

Another prep point guard is in the process of setting up an official visit to check out West Virginia's basketball program.

Trey Dickerson, a native of New York who spent this season at God's Academy prep school in Texas, has been speaking with WVU assistant coach Larry Harrison frequently, and is on the verge of setting up a visit to the school after fully qualifying for Division 1.

"I'm very interested in West Virginia," Dickerson told BlueGoldNews.com. "Coach Harrison thinks I fit their style of play, what they want to do, and I think I fit in their system as well.

"I'm an all-around player, but I'm a pass-first point guard," he continued, describing his game on the floor. "I can score and keep us in the game if the team needs me to, but I like to move the ball up the court. I'm fast, and I can get out and get everyone involved."

Dickerson spent this year as a post-graduate in order to achieve a qualifying test score, and he's achieved that goal. Along with WVU, he is planning on taking official visits to Murray State (offer) and Arkansas. He also has interest in Auburn and Marquette, but West Virginia has his full attention.

"I'm getting ready to get that scheduled with Coach Harrison," he confirmed. "I want to get there and see what it's all about, meet the players, and learn about the school. I'm good friends with Jabarie Hinds, and even though he's transferring I am still very interested in going there."

Henderson has not yet set a timetable for a decision, and his choice will likely depend on which high level Division 1 schools make him a scholarship offer. He thinks one could be coming from West Virginia once he makes his visit, and believes that his skill set fits with what head coach Bob Huggins wants.

"I am looking forward to getting there and meeting Coach Huggins and seeing how I can fit in," he said. "I can rebound, and I can play defense. I think he will like what he sees."
