I've finally found my home. I'm a Washington Husky pic.twitter.com/cqGYVPKQw7— Noah Dickerson (@NDickerson41) June 5, 2015
The Huskies men’s basketball team received yet another commitment for its 2015 recruiting class.
Noah Dickerson, a 4-star power forward prospect from Atlanta who originally signed with the University of Florida before backing out following coach Billy Donavan’s departure to the NBA, announced via Twitter that he plans to play for the Huskies next season.
Dickerson is currently in Seattle taking an official visit. He had also scheduled a visit to California for Saturday, but is no longer taking that trip.
He should be an immediate contributor in a Huskies frontcourt that became perilously thin with the transfer of Jernard Jarreau and the graduation of Shawn Kemp Jr.
Dickerson is listed by Scout.com as 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds, and is ranked 83rd overall in the 2015 recruiting class. According to Scout’s rankings, the Huskies’ incoming recruiting class now includes five top-100 players — Dickerson, Dejounte Murray, Marquese Chriss, Matisse Thybulle and Dominic Green.
Newcomers will now comprise 75 percent of Washington’s current roster. The Huskies are adding seven freshmen (the aforementioned, plus David Crisp and Devenir Duruisseau), junior-college transfer Malik Dime and Auburn transfer Matthew Atewe, who must sit out the upcoming season due to NCAA transfer rules.
The Huskies now have one scholarship available.
