RANKINGS: Class of 2014 - 2015 - 2016
Four-star power forward Noah Dickerson committed to Georgetown on May 13. The Hoyas coaching staff made him a priority early in the 2015 class and got the verbal commitment. On June 30, Dickerson decided to back out on his commitment and give other schools another chance to recruit him.
Since opening up his recruitment, Dickerson has been in contact some of the top college basketball programs in the country.
"Georgetown, Florida, Virginia, LSU, Michigan and
Georgia Tech are the schools I've been talking to. Virginia isn't really calling anymore because they only have one scholarship and they got a commitment from another post player last week."
Even though Dickerson decommitted from Georgetown, don't completely rule out him ending up a Hoya when all is said and done.
"I didn't decommit from Georgetown because it wasn't the right fit. I decommitted because I didn't get a chance to give other school the same amount of time on campus that I gave Georgetown. I just needed more time to see some other schools and be sure of my decision."
Billy Donovan has had a long successful stay as the head coach at Florida. His track record developing post players and using them in their offense has the Gators firmly in the mix for Dickerson.
"I love coach Donovan. He's a really good coach. He's one of the best coaches at developing players. I think Florida would use me properly. They have been on me hard lately."
For LSU, they have a current teammate of Dickerson's at Montverde already committed and that teammate just happens to be the top ranked player in the 2015 Rivals150. Their on-court chemistry and friendship off the court could really help the Tigers here.
"They started recruiting back during the spring. It was after the season. They started recruiting me because Ben Simmons told them to. Ben is recruiting me to go there and we play really well together. We're pretty good friends off the court too."
Prior to his commitment to Georgetown, Michigan had been a school that Dickerson showed a lot of interest in. That interest is still there.
"Coach Beilein is a great guy. He's another coach does a great job developing players and getting them ready for the next level. Academics are great there. They haven't offered me, but they do it differently. They haven't offered any forwards in my class. They have been recruiting for about two years now."
Georgia Tech, the closest school to where Dickerson grew up, is still in the mix as well.
"Georgia Tech is like right down the street for me, so I would get to play right in front of my friends and family. I love
coach Gregory. He does a great job developing players also. Georgia Tech is a great academic school. I go up there all the time to play with their guys. It's a really great school."
Dickerson has a busy schedule coming up with different events he'll be playing in. Once he completes them, he'll begin mapping out a visit schedule and move closer to committing again.
"I go to Tony Wroten skills academy then I play in the Jamal Crawford Pro-Am game on Sunday. When I get back from there, I go to the Global Challenge. When I finish all that, me and my will sit down and start setting up visits. I honestly don't know when I'm going to commit somewhere."
