University of Washington basketball coach Lorenzo Romar, who Thursday hired former Husky guard Will Conroy as an assistant coach, Friday announced four-star prospect Noah Dickerson (video here) will join the this fall. Ranked 83rd nationally by Scout, Dickerson is the fifth Top 100 recruit to sign with Washington, most of any school in the nation.
“We’re ecstatic to have Noah Dickerson join our program,” said Romar. “He is a forward that can score on the block, step outside and knock the shot down. He is very versatile and has a great knack for offensive rebounding, just has a nose for the ball. He’s a much-needed addition to round out our roster, especially for our front line.”
A 6-foot-8, 245 pound center, Dickerson becomes the eighth member of Washington’s newest class, joining Dejounte Murray (No. 37), Marquese Chriss (No. 51), Matisse Thybulle (No. 78), Dominic Green (No. 87), David Crisp, Malik Dime and Devenir Duruisseau. Dickerson is also ranked 19th nationally at his position and fourth overall in the state of Florida.
“I am so excited to have the opportunity to play at the University of Washington,” said Dickerson. “Coach Romar is a great coach and a great man, which is a big thing for me and my family. I came up here last year and fell in love with the city and the school. I can’t wait to be a part of bringing something special back to the Washington program.”
Originally from Atlanta, Dickerson played at basketball powerhouse Montverde Academy in Florida and helped the Eagles win their third straight Dick’s Sporting Goods national title in 2014-15. Dickerson scored 14 points and grabbed four rebounds in the championship against Oak Hill Academy at Madison Square Garden, and completed a three-point play with 1:48 remaining to seal the win.
Of Washington’s eight newcomers, four are from the state, five are ranked in the Top 100 nationally and six are in the top five for their position in their respective states. The Huskies are ranked seventh by Scout in overall class rankings with the eight newcomers.
