4-star 2021 CB Avante Dickerson Enjoys Time in Lincoln

June 22, 2019

The state of Nebraska has a big thing brewing with the class of 2021. There are going to be several Power 5 players in the state for that class. The best defensive player in that group will be Omaha Westside’s 4-star defensive back Avante Dickerson‍. 

The corner who stands at 5-foot-11 and 160 pounds was back in Lincoln for the Big Red BBQ on Friday night with his mom and they both had a great time. Part of Dickerson’s good experience in Lincoln was getting to talk with defensive backs coach Travis Fisher again.

“Yeah, I did [talk to Fisher],” he said. “It was good talking to Coach Fisher. He taught me some things I can use on the field.”

Dickerson has seen his stock rise significantly this offseason. He currently holds eight offers with Ohio State, LSU, Iowa and Nebraska among them. Aside from Nebraska, he camped at Ohio State on June 6 and toured the campus afterwards. 

Westside is projected to be one of the better teams in the state this upcoming football season. Dickerson has some big goals for himself and his team.

“For me individually, I just want to become the best player I can be to play at the next level in two years,” he said. “For our team, we are all working hard to make it to the state championship but we are going to keep working hard this summer and take it day-by-day.”

The defender has not given any indication of a potential timeline for his college decision. Still, that hasn’t stopped him from thinking about what he needs to feel at a school before he picks them.

“I just want somewhere I know I feel like family and have a close relationship with the coaches,” he said.

Expect the Huskers to try to make Dickerson a mainstay on the sidelines for games this season as they did last season.
