2014 weak-side defensive end and tight end recruit Garrett Dickerson is one of the top 150 recruits in the country and one of the most heavily recruited players in the country. Today, he received a prestigious SEC offer from the Alabama Crimson Tide, and it goes well with several other major offers. He told 247Sports today that he wants to visit the Wisconsin Badgers, and he specifically said that there is a “high” chance of him taking a trip to Madison this offseason. The Badgers, by the way, offered Dickerson in mid-February.
Mario Cristobal is the man in charge of recruiting the Bergen Catholic standout to Alabama, but he will be competing with several major programs in what is a wide-open race. Dickerson has offers from the Maryland Terrapins, Florida State Seminoles, Michigan Wolverines, Stanford Cardinal, Northwestern Wildcats, Boston College Eagles, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Connecticut Huskies, Syracuse Orange, Rutgers Scarlet Knights, Ohio State Buckeyes, Pittsburgh Panthers, Vanderbilt Commodores, Tennessee Volunteers, Wisconsin Badgers, and Nebraska Cornshukers.
The 6’4″, 240 pound WDE is slotted comfortably in our FanSided150 rankings, as Garrett Dickerson checks in at exactly 120th on the list. He is one of the top ten weak-side defensive ends in the 2014 recruiting class, and he is also arguably one of the top three recruits in the state of New Jersey (top five at least).
Just a couple of days ago, Dickerson visited Stanford and is a big target for both Stanford and Northwestern. He seems to have high interest in Wisconsin, and I’m sure the in-state Scarlet Knights will make a run at him. The offer from Alabama is absolutely huge for Dickerson, and it is very likely the biggest offer of his recruitment thus far. But of course, he has received some huge offers from schools like Michigan, Ohio State, Florida State, Tennessee, and Stanford (just to name five).
