WILLISTON, N.D. (AP) - Williston State College point guard Trey Dickerson plans to play for the University of Iowa the next three years.

The 6-foot freshman from New York City gave a verbal commitment to the NCAA Division I Hawkeyes over the weekend.

Dickerson had received interest from numerous schools and offers from Iowa, Nebraska, Iona, Washington, Washington State, Arkansas, Alabama-Birmingham, St. Louis and Fordham, according to Williston State, a two-year junior college in northwestern North Dakota.

Dickerson said a visit to the Iowa campus sold him on the school.

“After the first night in Iowa City I felt like I was home,” he said. “I felt comfortable; I never really felt that way about other schools.”

Dickerson this season helped lead the Tetons to a 26-5 regular season record and a Mon-Dak Conference title. He was named most valuable player in the conference, with an average of 20 points, six assists and four rebounds per game.

“I’m happy that Trey found a school he really liked and could see himself as a good fit for the next three years,” Teton head coach Eric Peterson said. “Our job is to prepare our athletes for the next level, whether it’s (after) one or two years at Williston State. He will be greatly missed in our program.”
