A top UGA target will be in attendance for a marquee game this season.
Landon Dickerson, a 4-star tackle from North Carolina, confirmed to the AJC on Wednesday that he’ll take an unofficial visit to UGA in October for the Bulldogs’ game against South Carolina.
And it’s possible that the 6-foot-5, 293-pound tackle will schedule an official, too.
“One will be an unofficial visit to the South Carolina-Georgia game,” said Dickerson, the No. 10 tackle in the country. “The other one, if I do decide to take an official visit there, which would be my second trip, it would probably be later in December, January, kind of.”
Dickerson says he’s been a priority for the Bulldogs in recent months, particularly after 4-star tackle E.J. Price decommitted in June.
“I definitely feel like I’m pretty high up on their list of offensive lineman,” Dickerson said. “They’ve really made that known with sending me letters and being in constant contact with (offensive line coach Rob Sale) and (coach Mark Richt). They answer any questions I have. They seem real excited about me.”
Dickerson maintains that Michigan, Virginia Tech, UGA, Auburn, Tennessee, Stanford and FSU have been schools of interest.
So what does he like most about UGA?
“They’ve been showing some interest here lately,” Dickerson said. “They have a great program down there. I really like coach Richt and coach Sale. They’re just some great people and I really kind of connected with them.”
Dickerson has scheduled three official visits so far. He’ll head up to Michigan on Sept. 12, Florida State on Oct. 10 and then Auburn on Nov. 28. He’ll likely fill his fourth visit relatively soon, but he plans on leaving the fifth open.
“The other one I’ll leave open in case a school shows some interest that I might not have been looking into,” Dickerson said. “If someone comes out of nowhere kind of deal.”
