NCAA Recruiting Marquel Dickerson to Buffalo

Kevin Hoffman-USA TODAY Sports

Aside from last years injuries Buffalo has had a rock solid running back on their roster going back to 2010. But UB is entering the post Branden Oliver era as the record breaking back graduates this year. What is left is Devin Campbell, James Potts, Anthone Taylor and a lot of young unproven players.

With building towards the future in mind UB coach Jeff Quinn recruited Marquel Dickerson to Buffalo. Like a lot of recruits, Dickerson sees UB as a program which is building in the right direction, he thinks that he can contribute to a growing team.

DIckerson picked UB over an offer from Toledo and committed shortly after a December 6th visit. He is looking forward to building a on a strong tradition of Buffalo running backs which includes James Starks of the Green Bay Packers and Oliver who will likely have his shot in NFL camps this spring.

To be able come in after a great Running Back BO, to continue to keep that running attack up is great.

UB's academic programs helped convince Dickerson to pick Buffalo over Toledo. Marquel told Bull Run that UB's "great Business program" was a factor.


Dickerson played his prep ball at North Point high school in Waldorf Maryland.  He had a great career which was punctuated when he broke out for 278 yards and scored 3 TD's before the half against one of the top teams in the country.

North Point high school plays in the SMAC which traditionally is not seen as a hotbed of FBS talent. Dickerson and some observers believe that the conference is a gem which will see increasing interest from FBS programs in teh future.

SMAC schools are definitely on the rise! We have a lot of FBS talent and on any given day we all can compete on the highest level. I think college coaches have to be willing to give all kids a chance no matter what school or county they play in. You can go to the private school and recruit the best but that doesn't mean they will live up to it on the next level. -- Marquel Dickerson

Coach Simon did the lion's share of recruiting Dickerson to UB. Coach Simon was also able to convey his belief in Dickerson's abilities and how the half back can help the Bulls in the next 4-5 years.

and I'm excited to be apart of the family and look forward to being there.
