Oregon football recruiting: Four-star WR Jurrion Dickey commits to Ducks on CBS Sports HQ
Oregon snagged a commitment from coveted four-star receiver Jurrion Dickey on Monday, when Dickey picked the Ducks live on CBS Sports HQ over Penn State, UCLA, USC and Washington. As the No. 8 ranked receiver in the Class of 2023 according to 247Sports, Dickey is a big early commitment for Oregon freshman coach Dan Lanning.
Dickey is a multi-sport star at Valley Christian in San Jose, Calif., and brings a nice combination of size and speed to the position at 6-foot-2 and 206 pounds. He was timed as running a 40-yard dash in 4.58 seconds and has a vertical leap of 37 inches.
During his junior season, Dickey racked up 1,304 yards as a junior in the 2021 season and scored 19 touchdowns while shining as a safety for his high school team. It is Oregon’s third commitment of the 2023 class and the first on the offensive side of the ball.
Here’s a more in-depth assessment of Dickey from 247Sports National Recruitment Analyst Chris Singletary:
Good change of direction as well as the ability to easily get in and out of its cuts. Does a good job of sticking his foot into the ground and pivoting his routes as he drops his weight to make his move. He has soft hands and doesn’t fight the ball, very natural to catch the ball and make a soccer move. Uses excellent body control on the climb for 50/50 balls. He wins these contested holds most of the time where he is able to outrun most defenders. Nice work using his size, quick feet and power to get the ball out when pressed by the defensive back and keep timing on his routes. Does a good job of using his speed to stretch the field as well as showing off his running ability after catches. More than a willful blocker who is aggressive when blocking and can stand to control the defender.
