Future Oregon wideout draws rave reviews with Overtime OT7 performance
Jurrion Dickey is catching some eyeballs at the Overtime OT7 7-on-7 league in Las Vegas.
The league—from the sports media brand Overtime—is a new 7-on-7 youth football league that began play on Thursday, June 9, and runs through Sunday. Some of the top prospects in the country are taking part in games, including 4-star Oregon quarterback target Jaden Rashada and Dickey, the 4-star Duck commit.
Dickey’s play has earned him some serious attention from scouts on hand for the action.
Here’s what 247Sports’ Andrew Ivins wrote of Dickey after Friday’s game:
“(Brandon) Inniss might have filled the stat sheet Friday, but no one seemed to make as many ‘wow’ catches as Dickey, who also looked the part Thursday. On tape, Dickey looks extremely athletic, but up close and in person you can just see how twitchy he is as he fires out of his stance and gets to work. What’s also notable about Dickey’s two-day performance is the fact that he has kind of emerged as a real WR1 for the Miami Immortales, who also have some other blue-chip skill players on the roster.”
And the guy throwing him the ball?

Foreshadowing? Perhaps. The Pittsburg, California, quarterback is set to commit on June 18. Oregon is a finalist.
No doubt Dickey is doing some recruiting for the Ducks. And he’s a pretty powerful voice to hear from. According to the 247 Composite, he’s the 13th-ranked receiver in the Class of 2023. He was recently added to the 2023 Polynesian Bowl roster. As we get closer to the start of Dickey’s senior season, expect the attention to continue to flow his way.
