4-Star Oregon Hosts Jurrion Dickey Continues to Grab Attention

We’re talking about Jurrion Dickey, a 4-star WR from Northern California. Dickie is currently ranked by 247Sports as the #10 WR and #59 overall player in the class of 2023. However, his performance this spring – basically at the OT7 camp in Las Vegas last week – convinced him to move up that ranking and potentially earn a fifth star before all was said and done.

According to Greg Biggins, national recruiting analyst for 247Sports, Dickey went above and beyond to be named WR No. 1 in the class. Here’s what he had to say about the Oregon commit:

We knew that in Palo Alto East (California) Valley Christian is widely known as Yurrion Dickey was a very talented athlete, but after seeing him last weekend at the Overtime OT7 tournament in Las Vegas, he deserves to be included in the discussion of the promising receiver in the country.

When you’re ranked 88th in the national 247Sports Composite and 59th in the Top247, it’s not exactly like you’ve been burned, but the reality is that Dickie looks grossly underrated outside of the country. top 40.

He ranked the No. 10 receiver in the country, but there is perhaps no other receiver in this class that combines his size, length, turn, arms, body control, strength and competitive level. There really are no weaknesses in his game, no matter how hard you try and find fault with one of them.

Of course, we also have an incredibly strong recipient class in 2023, with Zachariah Branch, Carnell Tate and Brandon Innis leading the way. However, if you were to compare Dickey to any of these players, Biggins would say he is well-placed and can compete against any of them.

Just for fun, if you’re comparing Dicky to those three, he probably has the best size/skill set in the group. He’s not as fast as Branch, but he’s five inches taller, 40 pounds heavier and catches passes better.

He is bigger and better at sports than Innis, and looks more explosive than Tate. He’s not just a camp or 7-on-7 player, and he dominated the pads last season, catching 78 balls for 1,300 yards and 19 touchdowns and throwing four passes while playing safe.

It’s already impressive that the Ducks got the 10th WR in the class, but if he starts climbing up that ranking and ends up being a 5-star player before all is said and done, there’s a good chance Dickie is among the most desirable recruits that have been in Oregon in a long time.
