Hogs target JUCO guard

Williston (N.D.) Williston State C.C. point guard Trey Dickerson is one of Arkansas' top remaining targets for 2014, and head coach Mike Anderson plans to see him in person later today.
Dickerson, 6-1, 175, has stayed in contact with Anderson and assistant coach Melvin Watkins since they first reached out in January, and likes what he's hearing so far.
"They're basically telling me how they need a point guard to run that system," Dickerson said. "They play up-and-down, which really is my strength, so it's a great situation for me.
"They've got a lot of athletic wings, a lot of athletic bigs. They've got Bobby (Portis), Mike Qualls and all of them. I think it's a great situation for me. I can run that team and get a lot of assists in transition. I think it's a great situation."
Dickerson's offer list includes the likes of Iowa and Nebraska, and he's receiving late interest from the likes of UCLA, Purdue, Oklahoma State and several others. The point guard said he's still working out his visit plans, and Arkansas appears to be in good shape to receive one.
"They were actually talking about coming down for a visit," Dickerson said. "We'll talk about it after Coach Anderson visits me (on Thursday)."
Dickerson said it's still too early for a list of favorites.
"I haven't really cut the list down yet," he said. "It's really a lot right now. There's a lot of schools coming after me."
Arkansas signed three new additions for the Class of 2014 last fall in forward Trey Thompson and guards Anton Beard and Nick Babb. The Hogs are also in the mix for JUCO forward Willie Atwood.
