Trey Dickerson’s Hoops Blog

Trey Dickerson is a 6-foot-1 point guard originally from Jamaica, Queens and now at God’s Academy (TX). An uncommitted fifth-year player, he will be contributing periodically to ZAGSBLOG during his senior season. Here’s his first entry:

What’s up? This is Trey Dickerson and this is my players blog for ZAGSBLOG.com.

I go to God’s Academy in Dallas, TX. I like God’s Academy a lot. We are always in the gym getting better and we play a lot of junior colleges, which will prepare me for college.

I currently have offers from Seattle, Cal State-Baskersfield, Oakland U. I am also hearing from North Texas, UCLA, UConn and Auburn. UCLA will come see me on the 22nd of this month.

I like UCLA the most. Coach [Korey] McCray and I have a really good relationship. We text all the time and I’m also cool with Kyle Anderson and have been playing against him since 5th grade.

Seton Hall associate head coach Shaheen Holloway hit me up today and said he’s going to come out and see me. Had a real good convo. We are both from the same neighborhood.

I’m currently averaging 23 points and 7 assists here at God’s Academy and it is impressive to college coaches that I am putting up numbers against junior colleges. North Texas came to see me last week. They really liked me and the head coach is coming back soon to watch me play.

Prep school helped me out a lot to learn how to become a better leader. It also prepared me for the college level knowing that you can’t take any plays off.

Well thanks for having me on ZAGSBLOG!

So who's roster should the Jets's secondary dept be scouting for releases?

I agree with everything in this Article except for Boyd having more upside than Simms. Boyd may be younger, but not by much, But Simms has more to offer in the near term and long term, at this point Simms is more developed and experienced, but also Simms is more accurate and has a cannon for an arm, Boyd is more mobile and has alot of character but If I was to chose between the two I would definately go with Simms for now and for the long term. I was excited about Ford coming to NY but since then hasn't shown much, so good move on letting him go, and I'm very impressed with Saalim, I hope he continues improving and MM can get him some plays on offense.

get either saunders, quincy or dozier on the IR with the injury they're going to unfortunately sustain this week. 


Or carry 2 QBs and 8 WRS. I read that Simms can go back to the PS. Seems weird but might make sense, though 2 QBs on the PS would be strange.

well ford out of the picture, i think gates is next.  I thought there would be more room for another OL?  maybe i'm bad at math or something.


I like Dozier a year on PS or even action in case of injuries will do him good this year.  It certainly helped aboushi, and even winters has progressed.

We've got an interesting situation now with a lot of development OLs who seem to be coming along nicely. Are they really going to cut Dozier, their 4th round pick who they actually like? I think Dozier is quite possibly a "scholarship" candidate like the guys last year. I think Hakim is a wildcard. He seems to have carved out a real niche on specials. Could he slip in as the final WR, particularly now that Saunders has medical issues?

Jets release WR Jacoby Ford, WR Michael Campbell, TE Colin Anders, FB Chad Young, DE Anthony Grady and CB Ras-I Dowling. #nyj

The beat writers seem to be putting out some flattering articles lately. What gives?

Hakim has been far better on special teams than anything Jacoby or Hill have done so far offensively.  Idzik will make room for a new better player real soon.

...and cut Wilson already!

@bharper42  I just don't think they can cut Dozier to put him o the PS. Somebody will pick him up. Last year the Jets kept Campbell and Aboushi on the 53 man roster but they were never active for any games. I see the same with Dozier.

Jacoby Ford gone. Grady, Dowling, Chad Young, Colin Anderson, Michael Campbell.

@levi Can't knock 'em down until you've built them up first...

@jetsjerk 

Maybe Hakim can play CB and take Wilsons place as well!

Cutting a serviceable player without obtaining a better replacement would be idiotic.

a57se

@jetsjerk 

Yeah, that makes sense! Our CB position is decimated by injuries and you want to cut Wilson!

Bent
Bent moderator

@levi @harold Yeah, he's been dealing with groin issues. 


Wonder if the Jets are on the hook for an injury settlement.  They may have a waiver in his contract.

Bent

@a57se @jetsjerk He's broken up a lot of passes in camp.


Unfortunately they were all intended for him.

@Disgruntled Jets Fan  Serviceable?  My Grandmother is more serviceable... with her neck brace on at least she has an excuse for not turning her head to look for the ball!  Serviceable Penalties should be his nickname! 


No, he's not serviceable. Trade him and Hill for a real CB!

jetsjerk

@a57se @jetsjerk yeah, he sucks.  Soon Cinci, tampa Hawks and many others will have to realese some far better CB's.  Wilson has sucked for far too long.

@hazard2012 @Karl Pacelli @bharper42 I agree 100% Dozier was very well regarded going into the draft and considering he has had to change positions he hasn't done any thing to hurt his stock in his limited playing time. I'm hearing a lot of positive stuff regarding Aboushi coming from the jets this off season but when i watch him play i keep seeing the penalty's and missed blocks that kept him off the field all of last season. i think we would have more luck sneaking Aboushi onto the practice squad than Dozier even though Aboushi might be slightly ahead in terms of readiness at this time. Obviously with Fords release it looks like Hakim's ability on special teams might keep around.

@Bent  I figured he must have been hurt or they would keep him around with all the other CBs being out.

Bent

@Disgruntled Jets Fan Ford is unlucky if the muff played into his axing.  Ford's never been a good punt returner and if Saunders wasn't hurt he wouldn't have been in that role.


He hasn't impressed as a receiver though, I guess.  Or even as a kick returner.  Hakim, I guess, is going to get a long look in that role now with punt return duties shared between Kerley, Wilson or even Decker until Saunders is back.

@jetsjerk @a57se 

Really? I'd love to know who they are gonna release that is so good?

Bent

@levi @Bent Kept getting hurt on special teams so they couldn't even get him in the game for a look at him at corner.  Must've been frustrating.

@Bent @Disgruntled Jets Fan please not decker and kerley on punt returns.  If you have any way of getting a word into the coaching staff's ear bent tell them we can't afford for those two to go down because of PR.

@Bent @Disgruntled Jets Fan I see Hakim making the roster.  He has serious speed and doesn't mind sticking his nose into a tackle.


We need that on specials.

@Bent  Frustrating for everyone involved Im sure.

Hows Berry looking in Cleveland?

@bharper42 @Bent @Disgruntled Jets Fan I agree with you, unless it's a "fair catch an important punt inside the 20 on a windy day" situation.


Hopefully Saunders will take this role.

@bharper42  Kerley pretty much just fair catches unless there is a ton of real estate in front of him anyway.

@boomer @Bent @Disgruntled Jets Fan I saw the best punt coverage I think I've ever seen from the Bucs the other day.  The return man caught it and was like surrounded by six guys who all beat their blockers.

@levi @Bent He missed a game injured but was back this week.  You'll have to wait for expendables to see how he did cuz no spoilerz.


He should make that team, I reckon.

@Bent  haha were they that good or the other team that bad?

@Bent  Fair enough. I always liked him but again thats another guy who is always hurt.

@levi @Bent I don't know because it was just a one-off play I happened to see while looking for something in particular but I might have to go back and review the rest of those teams' punts throughout preseason.

@levi @Bent Trufant is there too.  He's missed the last two games injured as well!

@Bent  I see Trufant is listed as the #2 LCB.

@levi @Bent He's the starting nickelback when healthy.
