Oregon WR commit Jurrion Dickey gets massive ratings bump from 247Sports
Jurrion Dickey is coming for that consensus 5-star rating.
On Monday, 247Sports unveiled a massive update to its 2023 ratings and Dickey, after a summer spent showing out every time he stepped on the field, flew up the board. The Oregon wideout commit moved up 45 spots in the Top247—247Sports’ own personal ranking—to No. 14 nationally.
He’s now the No. 2 wideout in the 2023 class, behind only USC commit Zachariah Branch. According to the evaluators at 247Sports, Dickey is a 5-star receiver.

Dickey is still a 4-star in the industry-generated 247 Composite, which pulls in rankings from both Rivals and ESPN. By both outlets, Dickey seems criminally underrated. Rivals has him listed as the 157th-ranked player in the class and the 23rd-ranked wideout. ESPN—which routinely differs from 247 and Rivals in these types of situations—has him even lower, at 200th overall and 27th for his position.
The industry leader, 247Sports, views Dickey as one of the clear-cut best prospects in the country. National recruiting analyst Greg Biggins wrote this on his game:
Dickey has a rare combination of size, speed, body control, strength and hands. He’s a physical player who runs well enough to make a play after the catch and get deep while catching the ball well enough to be used as a possession receiver and go to guy on key third down plays.
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.
He’s happy to be a Duck, and the Ducks are certainly extremely happy to have him.
