Four-star wide receiver Jurrion Dickey is transferring high schools for his senior season. According to a report by Mitch Stephens, the Oregon commit is headed to Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei from San Jose (Calif.) Valley Christian, where he played his first three years of high school football.
The 6-foot-2.5, 210 pound wideout is the No. 39 overall prospect and No. 8 wide receiver in the 2023 On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies. He is also listed as the No. 2 player in California.
On3’s rankings have Dickey even higher. They rate him as a five-star recruit, the No. 15 overall prospect and the No. 2 wide receiver in the 2023 On300.
“We’ve known for a couple of months and he’s been able to say goodbye to his teammates and coaches,” Valley Christian head coach Mike Machado told Stephens. “We’ve all got work to do now to get ready for the season without him. We’re working hard. But personally, we’ll all be rooting for him.”
Mater Dei is home to one of the best high school football programs in California. Players who attended Mater Dei include Alabama quarterback Bryce Young, West Virginia quarterback J.T. Daniels and Detroit Lions wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, who previously played for USC.
