After signing with Billy Donovan and the Florida Gators in the fall, 2015 four-star recruit Noah Dickerson is now heading to the opposite coast, as he has decided to attend Washington this fall.
When Donovan bolted the Gators for a job in the NBA with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Dickerson requested a release and backed out of his commitment to Florida last month. The top-100 recruit made his announcement via his Twitter page:
I've finally found my home. I'm a Washington Husky 🐺🐺 pic.twitter.com/cqGYVPKQw7

Dickerson chose the Huskies after strong interest from California and Texas. He is the No. 52 prospect in the 2015 class according to ESPN.
Dickerson will join a deep and talented class at Washington next season as he joins Dejounte Murray, Marquese Chriss, Matisse Thybulle, David Crisp, Dominic Green, Devenir Duruisseau and JUCO recruit Malik Dime in the Huskies 2015 recruiting class. Plus, the Huskies will also be welcoming in Auburn transfer Matt Atewe.
The Huskies were in desperate need of talent and Dickerson’s pledge should help coach Lorenzo Romar, who could be in the hot seat, immensely. If you recall, the Huskies lost star guard Nigel Williams-Goss in the offseason, as he transferred to Gonzaga last month.
Washington is coming off a season in which they finished second-to-last in the Pac-12 with a 5-13 record in the conference and 16-15 overall.
