Noah Dickerson commits to Washington

Former Florida Gators signee Noah Dickerson has found a new destination, committing to the Washington Huskies during his official visit.

He confirmed his choice in a text to ESPN.com and tweeted his decision.

Dickerson received his release from Florida last month following the Gators' coaching change. Billy Donovan left for the Oklahoma City Thunder, with Donovan's entire staff either following him to the NBA or finding another college job. Florida hired Louisiana Tech coach Mike White as Donovan's replacement.

After receiving his release, Dickerson heard from a long list of schools, strongly considering California and Texas in addition to Washington.

The 6-foot-8 power forward from Montverde Academy (Fla.) is ranked No. 52 in the ESPN 100. He was the highest-ranked prospect still on the board. Washington will be Dickerson's third commitment, as he originally pledged to Georgetown last year.

Coach Lorenzo Romar and Washington now have eight players in their 2015 recruiting class. The group includes ESPN 100 prospects Dejounte Murray and Marquese Chriss, as well as four-star small forward Matisse Thybulle and three-star prospects David Crisp, Dominic Green and Devenir Duruisseau. Junior college power forward Malik Dime rounds out the class.

The Huskies also added Auburn transfer Matt Atewe, who will be eligible in 2015-16 after sitting out next season.
