Landon Dickerson, a 4-star offensive tackle from North Carolina, isn’t the least bit surprised that he’s been a target for UGA in recent weeks.
“I do feel like I’m pretty high on their radar,” Dickerson told the AJC. “They’re recruiting me fairly hard right now. And with the recent de-commitments and stuff, it doesn’t surprise me. I still feel like I’m wanted there.”
Dickerson is referencing 4-star offensive tackle E.J. Price, who surprisingly de-committed from UGA back in June. While the fallout may have spurned the Bulldogs to focus more effort on the 6-foot-5, 293-pounder, Dickerson says nothing has changed on his end.
“Besides just talking to them and building a better relationship with coach Mark Richt and (UGA offensive line coach) Rob Sale, I’m just kind of letting things roll,” Dickerson said.
Added Dickerson: “We just talk more about — not football — but how are families are doing and stuff we do with our families. That kind of thing.”
It should be noted that the South Caldwell High School standout has been active lining up his official visits. He told the AJC that he’s set up two of his five allotted trips, and he’ll first visit Michigan on Sept. 12 before heading to Auburn on Nov. 28.
What are the chances UGA gets a visit?
“That’s a possibility,” Dickerson said. “I’m still kind of thinking this through right now and seeing where I want to take officials to and where I don’t.”
Dickerson, who currently holds 20 offers, is considering Michigan, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, Auburn, Florida State and UGA, in no particular order. And just as he told the AJC over a week ago, he has no set timetable on when he’ll announce.
“Really, for me, it’s going to be where I feel most comfortable. If that comes next week or if it comes at the end of November or signing day, it’ll probably be sometime this season, I’d say. But I don’t really have a specific date so far.”
