According to Jerry Meyer of 247Sports, the Longhorns have extended an offer to the 6'8, 245-pounder and want to get him on campus in the near future, confirming the Tuesday report from industry insider Justin Young that Dickerson is considering a visit to Austin.
Washington and Cal are also in pursuit of Dickerson, according to Meyer, but the Golden Bears don't currently have a scholarship available. Georgetown was initially thought to be a contender for the nation's No. 19 power forward after holding a commitment from him at one point in his recruitment. However, the Hoyas aren't pursuing Dickerson at this time.
So the Longhorns appear to be in a strong position to land head coach Shaka Smart's second commitment during his time in Austin, assuming that Dickerson does make it to campus and enjoys the experience.
There are now three predictions for Dickerson to Texas in the 247Sports Crystal Ball:
Texas has one scholarship remaining for the 2015-16 season following the Tuesday commitment of four-star wing Tevin Mack.
