The 6-foot-8 Dickerson is a four-star prospect, rated as the No. 56 overall recruit in the Class of 2015 by Rivals. He joins four-star shooting guard KeVaughn Allen and three-star power forward Kevarrius Hayes in the Gators current recruiting class.
That class will be joined by South Florida transfer John Egbunu, who transferred to Florida back in May. The 6-foot-10 center will sit out next season, but will have three years of eligiblity remaining. He averaged 7.4 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks per game in his lone season with the Bulls.
Dickerson, the Monteverde Academy (Florida) product, was originally a Georgetown commit, but decided to reopen his recruitment back in late June. The Hoyas recruiting class had a verbal commitment from top 100 power forward Marcus Derrickson, and its incoming freshman class was front court heavy with the likes of Isaac Copeland, Paul White and L.J. Peak joining the program this season.
This summer in the Nike EYBL, Dickerson averaged 14.2 points, 8.4 points and 1.0 blocks per game for the Georgia Stars.
