@JurrionDickey Continues Rise to California ’23 Elite WR

Watching San Jose Valley Christian WR Jurrion Dickey in workouts, you will notice that he can elevate. The 2023 prospect is elevating in a different way as he rises up the latest recruiting boards.

Dickey is a 6-foot-2-inch, 210-pound junior-to-be with a tremendous amount of upside. He and his Valley Christian teammates were limited to just four games last season due to the coronavirus, but that was all it took for college recruiters to take notice.

Colleges all over the country will soon be taking notice as Dickey continues to post his workout exploits. Check out the above box jump. It shows the explosiveness of this young receiver.

Explosive Athlete

Speaking of explosiveness, check out Dickey’s stats from Valley Christian’s abbreviated 2020 campaign. This spring, Dickey managed 14 receptions for 239 yards, an average of 17.1 yards per reception. He also scored five touchdowns in just four games. That’s explosiveness.

Dickey also displayed his power and athleticism during the spring track season. He ran an 11.34 100-meter dash and a 23.01 200-meters. He also long jumped 20-feet-6.5-inches. All three numbers are impressive for a sophomore athlete, and even more impressive for one that weighs over 200 pounds.

Here’s an example of how all that speed, power, and explosiveness works together to make Dickey one of the best wide receiver prospects in the Class of 2023.

In the above video, Dickey beats press coverage and then beats the defender with a double move. It’s a great display of all of his talents.


Remember, Dickey had played as a freshman and recorded 28 receptions for 541 yards and seven touchdowns. After his success as a first-year player, Dickey started to receive interest from several local schools. San Jose State was the first to offer. Arkansas followed last summer.

Dickey’s recruiting picked up again as the spring season was about to start in 2021. Arizona and Pitt offered in February and several more came through after Dickey’s spring season.

Valley Christian lost its spring season opener to Serra 33-26. The Warriors responded with three straight wins to finish 3-1. In June, Dickey picked up four more offers – UNLV, Nevada, Fresno State and UCLA – before receiving an offer in July from Oregon.

It was at the Ducks camp where Dickey really shined, especially as he got to go up against elite talent. He also did a camp at Sacramento State and one at Cal earlier in the summer.

The Future

Dickey still has two full high school seasons to play before he gets to compete at the next level. And compete at the next level he will.

He is a big body with very good speed. He understands how to get open and use his body before and after the catch. His speed will only improve as his body matures. Dickey is capable of making play after play and he is a complete receiver. He plays in a Wing-T offense that likes to run the football. There is no question that he excels as a blocker.

You can see all of his talents on display here in this highlight video from a spring scrimmage and the four regular season games that Valley Christian played.
