Nebraska big for Dickerson

Matt Dickerson just added an offer from Nebraska and it's a major deal for the San Mateo (Calif.) Junipero Serra defensive end who wants to visit Lincoln sometime soon.
Dickerson, a 6-foot-5, 260-pound recruit who has seen his recruitment take off in recent weeks, might have to wait to visit Nebraska until the summer because he's already taken a bunch of unofficial trips but still, the Huskers are being taken seriously in his recruitment and Dickerson would like to visit there soon.
"I was talking to coach Rick Kaczenski and he added me on Facebook about two or three weeks ago and then there was no contact," Dickerson said.
"Then he started messaging me and I told him to check out my highlight tape. He checked out my tape and in the next day or two he loved it and he brought it to the coaching staff and they offered right away.
"That's a huge offer. That's so huge. It's a big program and it's a blessing to have that one."
So far, Dickerson has added offers from Arizona, Arkansas, Cal, Colorado, Nebraska, Nevada, San Diego State, San Jose State, UCLA, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Because Dickerson has been hitting the road hard in the last month touring schools and getting a better feel for the recruiting process, any more trips might have to wait until after his school year ends but the San Mateo Junipero Serra standout said he definitely wants to make it to Nebraska this off-season.
"Right now I've been taking unofficial visit after unofficial visit like three or four weeks in a row," Dickerson said. "My parents are getting kind of worried about my school so I'm trying to keep my academics up as well as talking to all these coaches and visiting schools.
"I'm going to try to get out there to Nebraska during the summer, as soon as possible. All these schools want me to come out to their summer camps and come visit them. I can only choose so many but I am definitely interested in them."
Dickerson's recruitment is happening so fast he's not sure about other programs getting involved.
He said basically every week another team gets in the mix but it's usually a surprise and he remains open to all programs as things continue to stay busy.
