One of the hottest prospects in the West the last few months has been Matt Dickerson and the San Mateo (Calif.) Junipero Serra defensive end just landed another big offer.
Oregon is the latest school to get involved with the 6-foot-5, 260-pound prospect and Dickerson said even though it's still early in the process he's going to take a serious look at the Ducks.
"Coach (Nick)Aliotti offered me (Tuesday morning)," Dickerson said. "It went really well. He said he saw my tape and then he took about a week and then he showed the d-line coach and they offered me right away.

"It's probably one of the biggest schools in the Pac-12. They've won a lot of bowl games and they've been to the BCS so it's a big blessing to have them in the mix. It will definitely be up there."
So far, Dickerson has landed offers from Oregon, Arizona, Arkansas, Cal, Colorado, Colorado State, Nebraska, Nevada, San Diego State, San Jose State, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Since many of those offers came as a surprise, Dickerson said he wants to wait until his junior year is over, then figure out unofficial visits this summer to determine a list of frontrunners.
That should be happening within the next few weeks and then the Northern California prospect should have a better feel on where his recruitment is headed.
Until then, Dickerson said he doesn't want to name any favorites but that Oregon will definitely get a serious look as his recruitment continues.
"After I finish school, which is about 11 days or so, I'm going to talk with my parents and bring up all the schools I'm trying to visit," Dickerson said. "I can't visit all of them. I'm going to try to but I still have to talk with my parents about it.
"They're all great. I really haven't started to eliminate any schools yet or determined which schools are higher priorities to me."
