Class of 2015 power forward Noah Dickerson re-opened his commitment a while back, and though many Georgetown fans think that he will not re-commit, it is not hard for a team to get a player the second time around.

With that said, Dickerson recently received an offer from Pittsburgh, but Hoya fans, do not worry -- they are not one of the schools you should be worrying about. A source told Big East Coast Bias that Virginia, Florida, LSU, and Georgetown are the schools that he is considering. Another source told Big East Coast Bias that Virginia is not sure if they will continue to aggressively recruit Dickerson or not. Dickerson's parents love Virginia from what I have heard, but it is not about what they want. It is about how well he fits into the system.

When Dickerson committed to Georgetown, Virginia started to pursue other prospects at the same position and they do not know if they will go back to Dickerson or move forward with the targets they have been recruiting since he originally committed to Georgetown.

Another school that is in the mix for Dickerson according to a person with knowledge of the situation is Ohio State. One of Dickerson's teammates this year at Montverde Academy was D'Angelo Russell, who will be playing for the Buckeyes and head coach Thad Matta. They could make a push because Dickerson said he likes them and the staff might have some help because he played with Russell.

LSU is also in mix for the power forward because Ben Simmons, who is the best player in the class of 2015, has been talking to Dickerson about teaming up. The pitch that Simmons gives Dickerson could really be one to seal the deal. And that could be bad news for Georgetown.

Florida is also in the mix, but Big East Coast Bias did not get an clear indication on why. Dickerson did visit Florida a few months ago with Ohio State class of 2015 commit Austin Grandstaff.
