Penn State has cracked the top five for Jurrion Dickey, a four-star 2023 receiver from Valley Christian High School in East Palo Alto, California.
Penn State is competing with a trio of Pac 12 schools for the four-star Dickey. This includes Oregon, USC, UCLA and Washington. 247Sports’ only “crystal ball” projection for Dickey, placed by Director of Football Recruiting Steve Wiltfong, has Dickey picking Oregon with a “six” confidence level.

Dickey (6-foot-2, 206 pounds is the ninth-ranked athlete in California from his class according from 247Sports’ composite rankings. Penn State offered Dickey back in February. Penn State currently doesn’t have a receiver committed to the 2023 class, but has three signed for 2022.
247Sports’ scouting report, placed by national recruiting expert Chris Singletary, projects Dickey as a “2-3 round” NFL draft pick.”
“Dickey is a talented player,” wrote Singletary, “that has 3-phase ability playing on special teams as a returner, safety where he had four interceptions and receiver, posting 1,304 yards along with 19 touchdowns last year. He brings a lot of ability, skills and intangibles to the game. He looks to be a multi-year starter and all-conference performer.”
Dickey is also listed as the nation’s No. 6 overall athlete, despite being a four-star recruit and not a five-star recruit. He is the nation’s No. 59 overall prospect.
