Former Georgetown 2015 commit Noah Dickerson re-opens his recruitment

Noah Dickerson committed to play for the Georgetown Hoyas in May. Now, however, it looks like the talented big-man will be taking his talents elsewhere. On Monday, Dickerson tweeted out that he would be re-opening his recruitment after deciding that going to a packed frontcourt with the Hoyas would be less than ideal.

Dickerson, the 53rd ranked 2015 prospect according to Rivals, is a 6’8″, 255-pound force underneath the basket. Even with that being said, though, it seems like competing for playing time at Georgetown against good, other solid frontcourt 2015 recruits like Jessie Govan and Marcus Derrickson proved to be something he preferred not to do.

The idea going around in basketball circles is that he wants to see which college basketball coaches will give him the most attention in July, especially with the July live evaluation period coming later this month.

To put Dickerson in some perspective as a talent, he Dickerson averaged 14.2 points and 8.4 rebounds per game in the Nike EYBL this spring. It is pretty safe to assume that he will get plenty of offers in the coming weeks. Well, at least until he commits to another program.

Despite losing Noah Dickerson as a commit, this shouldn’t alter Georgetown’s plans the rest of the offseason and going forward.
