National recruiting analyst thinks Oregon commit should be top-rated player at his position
After showing out at last week’s Overtime OT7 7-on-7 tournament, 4-star wideout and Oregon commit Jurrion Dickey is seeing his name tossed around with some of the best in his class.
On Thursday, 247Sports national recruiting analyst Greg Biggins questioned why Dickey, currently ranked as the No. 13 wideout in the 2023 class by the 247 Composite, isn’t the No. 1 receiver on the board.
When you’re rated the No. 88 player nationally in the 247Sports Composite and No. 59 in the Top247, it’s not exactly like you’re being ‘slept on,’ but the reality is, Dickey looks grossly under-rated outside the national top 40.
He’s rated the No. 10 receiver in the country but there may not be another receiver in this class that has his combination of size, length, burst, hands, body control, toughness and compete level. There really isn’t a weakness in his game no matter how hard you try and nitpick for one.
The 6-foot-3 wideout from Valley Christian in California committed to the Ducks in early May, choosing head coach Dan Lanning over a group of finalists that also included USC, UCLA, Washington, and Penn State.
A multi-sport athlete, Dickey ran an 11.34 100-meter and a 23.01 200-meter as a sophomore in addition to a 20-6.5 long jump. According to 247, he has a verified 4.58-second 40-time and a 37-inch vertical. As a junior, Dickey caught 78 balls for 1,304 yards and 19 receiving touchdowns. He played all three phases of the game, securing four interceptions as a safety on the defensive side of the ball and working as a return man on the punt team.
Dickey has seen his stock steadily rise since the start of spring, climbing from the national 130s all the way up to where he currently sits (88th). With rave reviews coming in from all directions, he could certainly continue to rise.
No doubt, Oregon won’t care what his composite ranking is at the end of the day. The Ducks can’t wait to get him on campus.
