Four-star offensive line prospect Landon Dickerson returned to Virginia Tech on Monday to watch the Hokies take on Ohio State. The standout senior reflected on his most recent experience in Blacksburg, a place he has visited many times before.
“It was a really great game,” Dickerson said. “I was really pumped up about the first half. They were winning at the half. After Brewer got hurt, I was really disappointed because I saw the offense drop off. I think if he had been able to stay in it might have been a different story. It was a great atmosphere. It was really loud. I’ve never experienced anything like that.”
Tech’s coaches “were just really excited I got back up there to watch the game,” Dickerson answered when asked what the message the Tech staff had for him on Monday. “The message has always been to come and be part of what they’re doing. I can tell they really want me to come there and help rebuild to be great again.”
In August, Dickerson expressed concern the future status of head coach Frank Beamer. Does this remain an issue for the talented lineman?
“I saw [Frank Beamer] before the game,” Dickerson said. “I saw him one time back in January. He seems a whole lot better and his overall outlook is better than it used to be. He sounds a lot better and seems happier. That did stick in my mind.”
What is Dickerson’s overall impression of the Hokies at this point?
“I really like Virginia Tech,” Dickerson said. “It’s a great school for education. I think they are rebuilding with football right now. I’m hoping they do some good things this year to kind of prove they are accomplishing that. I really like the coaching staff. The campus is beautiful. It’s a likeable place.”
Dickerson, an Under Armour All-American, revealed his top six schools recently. Virginia Tech made the list along with Auburn, Florida State, Georgia, Michigan, and Tennessee. What’s next recruiting-wise for the 6’5”, 305-pound prospect? Is another visit to Virginia Tech a possibility?
“Right now, it’s about finding out more about other top schools,” Dickerson answered. “Maybe I’ll get back to Tech toward the end of the year.”
