Dickerson transferred to Penn State in June of 2013 and was cleared Dec. 20, 2013 by the NCAA to begin play immediately for the Nittany Lions. Penn State submitted a Legislative Relief Waiver to the NCAA requesting it waive the year in residence requirement that generally applies to transfers in basketball. Dickerson, a sophomore center, is eligible for the balance of the 2013-14 campaign with two additional full seasons (2014-15 and 2015-16) of eligibility remaining.
A 7-0, 240-pound center, Dickerson is the tallest Nittany Lions since 7-0 forward Jan Jagla (2002-04). He brings a Big Ten ready body, tremendous size and athleticism to the line-up and will look to expand and develop his game during a redshirt season after playing in 26 games as a true-freshman at Southern Methodist University last year.
"Jordan brings tremendous size, athleticism and a great work ethic to our program. He'll have a redshirt season this coming year in which he will make significant strides in his development and will help prepare our team for the upcoming season. "
