Committed: May 4

Scouting report: There are no plans to use Dicker as a punter at Texas. He’ll compete for the starting spot as the place kicker and on kick offs. The plan when Dicker committed was to redshirt his freshman season while Rowland played out his eligibility in 2018. The struggles in the kicking game mean Dicker needs to be ready to compete next summer.

Dicker actually made the longest field goal at DKR Memorial Stadium in 2017 when he hit a 48-yard attempt against Converse Judson during the area round of the state playoffs. Dicker began his varsity career as a sophomore, making all 71 of his extra points and 10-of-11 field goals with a long of 44. He made 10-of-14 field goal attempts with a long of 46 as a junior, hitting 91 of his 92 extra points. Through 14 games as a senior, Dicker is 12-of-16 on field goals with a long of 53. He’s also 64-of-66 on extra points.
