Noah Dickerson announced his commitment to the Washington Huskies during his official visit to the campus on Thursday, and the school made it official a few minutes ago: Dickerson, a 6-foot-8, 245-pound forward prospect from Atlanta, has signed financial-aid paperwork and will join the program this summer with the rest of UW’s now eight-player incoming class.
“We’re ecstatic to have Noah Dickerson join our program,” UW coach Lorenzo Romar said in a statement released by the school. “He is a forward that can score on the block, step outside and knock the shot down. He is very versatile and has a great knack for offensive rebounding, just has a nose for the ball. He’s a much needed addition to round out our roster, especially for our front line.”
Dickerson originally signed with Florida — he had offers from several SEC schools, among others — but was granted a release from his letter of intent after Gators coach Billy Donovan left to coach the Oklahoma City Thunder.
He joins an incoming class that includes freshmen Dejounte Murray, David Crisp, Matisse Thybulle, Marquese Chriss, Dominic Green and Devenir Duruisseau, junior-college transfer Malik Dime and Auburn transfer Matthew Atewe, who must sit out the upcoming season per NCAA transfer rules.
Dickerson is UW’s fifth top-100 recruit (per Scout.com) to sign in the 2015 class. That’s more than any other school in the country.
“I am so excited to have the opportunity to play at the University of Washington,” Dickerson said in a statement. “Coach Romar is a great coach and a great man which is a big thing for me and my family. I came up here last year and fell in love with the city and the school. I can’t wait to be a part of bringing something special back to the Washington program.” Read more »
