Matt Dickerson has seen his recruitment take off this spring and now the San Mateo (Calif.) Junipero Serra defensive end is taking numerous unofficial visits to see which programs stand out the most.
The 6-foot-5, 260-pound prospect was at UCLA this past weekend and it definitely went well. Many Pac-12 teams look good early in his recruitment and Dickerson said the Bruins definitely left a good impression.
"I'm just trying to visit all my schools that have offered and get a feel for every single one of them," Dickerson said.

"If that takes longer, then the commitment will come later. I am trying to get this done as soon as possible, though, maybe even before the season.
"It went really well at UCLA. They went over the coaching scheme, the 3-4 base defense and I've been talking to coach (Angus) McClure about my position if I went there. We talked about Datone Jones and how he got drafted. We talked about how they see me so overall it's been really good so far."
Dickerson has also taken unofficial trips to Washington and Colorado recently and he's considering visits to Arizona, Arkansas and possibly Washington State as the off-season continues.
So far, the Northern California prospect said the Pac-12 teams lead in his recruitment but with more trips things could change.
"The Pac-12 schools are really standing out to me," Dickerson said. "All the schools that I've been to so far have been really up there."
More offers could be on the way for Dickerson, who already has Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Nevada, San Diego State, San Jose State, UCLA, Washington and Washington State on his board.
Dickerson said Cal, Northwestern and Nebraska have recently reached out so he's waiting to see how that progresses in the coming weeks.
