Penn State men's basketball

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. "
- Patrick Chambers
