    Dickerson was a helium prospect in the Northeast this spring. Scouts flocked to Morris Knolls High School in New Jersey to see him on the baseball field after he helped win a hockey state championship in March. A physical and filled out 6-foot, 190-pound shortstop, Dickerson has an offensive-oriented game. He flashed an ability to use the middle of the field as well as improved power production this spring. Scouts seem mixed on whether his offensive profile will be more power-over-hit or hit-over-power, though no one seems split on his running ability and athleticism. He’s a plus runner who should be able to stick at an up-the-middle defensive position, though his fringe-average arm strength will probably slide him off shortstop in the future. Second base or center field are realistic future homes for him, though he’ll probably get every opportunity to stick in the dirt for the long run and will need more experience if and when he moves to the outfield. Dickerson draws comparisons to Sammy Stafura and Jackson Merrill thanks to his geographic location and late-spring up-arrow status. He’s committed to Virginia but is getting plenty of top-two round buzz.
