Falcon Men Land Their Third Commitment

That's three, and if everyone is coming back that will be all.  (As it turns out, BG has a 4th signee, see next post)

The third commit is indeed a JUCO PF, as BG looks to construct an inside game for the 14-15 season.  His name is Delvin Dickerson.  He played most recently at Paris Junior College, which is not in France.  It is in Texas, located between Dallas and Arkansas.  According to their website, they regularly put 5-6 players in 4 year colleges to play ball.

Also, his coach there was Chuck Taylor, who had a shoe named after him.

They were 26-8 last year and won the Region XIV conference tournament.  Dickerson scored 11 points a game.  He shot 47% from the field, averaged 4.5 RPG.  He committed only 77 fouls in 30 games.

He originally signed out of HS with South Alabama. Here is what they wrote about him when he signed there...

Dickerson led Westbury Christian to a 37-2 record last season and a runner-up finish in the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools state tournament. The Wildcats and head coach Russell Carr are ranked No. 47 in ESPN.com’s Preseason POWERADE FAB 50 Rankings and have won three state titles in the last six years.

As a junior Dickerson averaged 17.8 points and 11.0 rebounds and was named MVP of the 71st annual Houston ISD Boys Basketball Tournament in December 2010.WCHS defeated two-time defending 4A champion Houston Yates in the final behind 25 points and 12 rebounds from Dickerson.

Obviously, a guy with D1 ability who fills a need in BG.  He very well could end up starting for BG.

Welcome to the Falcons, Delvin.
