After dropping his commitment to Baylor in February, highly-touted Navasota senior receiver Tren’Davian Dickson is back with the Bears.
Dickson re-committed to the Bears late Monday night following his four-month commitment to Texas.
The 6-0, 170-pound Dickson had originally committed to the Bears in the summer of 2014 before his junior year at Navasota. But after a monster season for the Rattlers, he re-opened his recruitment.
MaxPreps named Dickson the national junior of the year after he finished with 90 catches for 2,163 yards and 39 touchdowns.
“The biggest thing is his athletic ability,” Navasota coach Lee Fedora said. “He’s got unbelievable hands and leaping ability, and he’s a legit 4.4 guy (in the 40-yard dash).”
Dickson has helped the Rattlers go 10-0 heading into the playoffs this season by making 66 catches for 1,191 yards and 20 touchdowns.
“There’s no doubt he’s getting some double-team coverage and teams are definitely eyeing him,” Fedora said. “He’s a great leader. A lot of people break records, but it’s all about them. With Tren’Davian, it’s all about getting the W and his teammates. He’s also done a great job at safety by getting multiple interceptions and doing a good job communicating with the other guys.”
Dickson was unavailable for comment Tuesday.
Dickson is the 16th commitment in Baylor’s 2016 class and the third receiver as he joins Mesquite Horn’s Jared Atkinson and Daingerfield’s Denzel Mims. Sachse’s Donovan Duvernay could play receiver or defensive back.
