Landon Dickerson’s official visit to Alabama has the Crimson Tide standing strong in his final grouping.
“It was good,” the four-star offensive tackle from South Caldwell (Hudson, N.C.) said. “A lot of things stood out. The coaching staff, the facilities, the trip overall, really, everything was good.”
“I feel like they absolutely helped themselves,” Dickerson said when asked about Alabama’s chances “You can only build so much of a relationship talking on the phone and stuff. Meeting coach (Nick) Saban and all the other staff that were down there, it was a great experience and it really helped me picture myself being able to attend the University of Alabama and playing football there too.”
Dickerson said he would take his final official visit to Tennessee this weekend. He was considering taking the official visit to Georgia, but the Vols won out.
“[Tennessee] is a great school,” the 6-foot-5, 300-pound prospect said. “They’ve obviously been recruiting me for a long time now. I think they have a great program. They’ve been building up for a long time.”
Dickerson has said Auburn, Florida State, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Florida were his finalists, although the Seminoles and Vols were thought to be at the top. Now, Alabama might have crept into that top group.
“The visit [to Alabama] overall was very well put together,” Dickerson said. “I got to spend a lot of time with players and talk to them about the program, how they feel about everything and what their outlooks were on the program and their positions and their opinions…Alabama is making a strong push to be included in those three.”
Dickerson is the No. 4 offensive tackle in the nation and the No. 2 overall prospect in North Carolina.
