As far as pain threshold goes, Landon Dickerson must have a pretty high bar.
Dickerson told Scout.com that he broke multiple toes early in last Friday’s game against St. Stephens. But he kept playing and still made his presence felt on both sides of the ball. While Dickerson’s South Caldwell (Hudson, N.C.) lost its second consecutive game after a 7-0 start, there is no doubt that Dickerson continues to get better and is a college star in the making.
Projected as a guard in college, Dickerson is ranked as the No. 5 player in the state, No. 9 player at his position and No. 101 overall according to ESPN.com. He also is an Under Armour All-American as the Selection Tour presented by American Family Insurance came to his school Wednesday.
“This has always been a dream for me and I know thousands of other people, too,” Dickerson said. “Being one of the few selected, that’s a very high honor.”
Dickerson is still shuffling plans for visits and is leaving open the possibility that a late entrant might affect his decision.
For now, Dickerson has already taken his first official visit to Florida State and is looking at taking additional visits to Auburn, Alabama and Georgia. Coaches from Tennessee and Virginia Tech have been out to see him play.
Dickerson, though, is clearly not in a hurry to decide.
