Wait, Shaka Smart isn't finished assembling his first recruiting class for the Texas Longhorns?
While the commitment of four-star small forward Tevin Mack on Tuesday seemingly finished Smart's work in the 2015 class, there's actually another prospect on the recruiting radar -- four-star power forward Noah Dickerson, a 6'8, 245-pounder from Florida's Montverde Academy.
Like Mack, Dickerson signed during the early period, then sought and received his release when his prospective head coach left for another job, in this case Billy Donovan's departure to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
According to one industry insider, Dickerson will take a visit to Texas in the near future:
Texas isn't done, either. From what I've been told former Florida commit Noah Dickerson will take a visit to Austin soon, too.— Justin Young (@JustinDYoung) May 19, 2015
The visit needs further confirmation, but it's the first sign that the Horns could be a contender for his services.
The challenge is that 247Sports doesn't list VCU as an offer for Dickerson, so any relationship between Smart and the nation's No. 19 power forward may be limited. However, if there's one thing that Smart can do, it's make a positive impression quickly. The same goes for the University of Texas and its campus.
Washington is one of the competitors for Dickerson and there are now two 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions for Dickerson to the Huskies, along with one from Jerry Meyer to Georgetown, which held a commitment from Dickerson before he flipped to and signed with Florida.
There's one scholarship remaining for Texas after Mack's commitment.
