Dickey article from Prepstars

Found this one at lunch today confirming what we already know. Posted free, but not sure how long that will be so I'll post the text here:

Ra'Sean Dickey narrowed his choices to Georgia Tech and Auburn, and the 6-9 BF/C committed to Paul Hewitt's Yellow Jackets over the Tigers.

Dickey, a solidly-built and offensively talented forward, gives Georgia Tech a legitimate low-post scoring presence and a guy who can assist the size-starved Yellow Jackets on the boards.

One factor that helped Tech was the presence of Dickey's AAU teammate, guard Zam Frederick, who pledged to Hewitt's club earlier this fall.

Dickey at one time was regarded as a likely All-American in the Class of 2004, but he struggled as a rising junior on the summer circuit and his reputation suffered as a result of that inconsistent play.

But he reversed that momentum this past summer, playing much harder on both ends and using good footwork and athleticism to post big numbers at the Peach Jam.

Georgia Tech now has commitments from Dickey, Frederick and NC WG/WF Anthony Morrow, and any day the Jackets are expected by many to get a public commitment from TX BF Jeremis Smith.
