WR Dickerson returns from Ivy League school

Oftentimes recruits with the grades to play football at an Ivy League school pay lip service to the programs at those schools, but it's tough to tell how serious their interest is.

It's still too early to know whether Cameron Dickerson will have Harvard on his final list whenever it comes out, but for now he's taken a serious interest in the school.

It should be noted that Harvard managed to sign four-star Massachusetts tight end Blake Barker last year, so high profile recruits going the Ivy route isn't unheard of.

"I went to visit Harvard last Saturday on (April) 24th," Dickerson recalled.

"They had a junior day and I watched their spring game. It was good. They've got a great campus and it's good academically. The football program is getting better and better. I'm definitely considering it. No matter what school you go to in the Ivy League you're going to get a great education."

Dickerson holds an offer from Harvard, as well as from Indiana and Vanderbilt. He believes another school may be close to putting a scholarship on the table.

"One school that could be thinking about offering me in the next couple of weeks is Northwestern," he said. "They've been showing a lot of interest in me and their coaches are coming up early next week so I can sit down and talk with them."

Dickerson said he speaks with the coaches from Indiana once or twice per week. An assistant coach from Vanderbilt made the trip to Oradell (N.J.) Bergen Catholic to meet Dickerson, and the junior prospect said the meeting went well.

The 6-foot-3, 195-pound receiver said he is still trying to figure out his summer plans and doesn't have anything lined up yet. He has camp invitations from everyone on the lengthy list of schools that are interested.
