Nebraska hasn’t offered a scholarship yet, but is keeping close tabs on point guard Trey Dickerson of Williston (N.D.) State College, who has been listed on various recruiting sites from 6-foot tall to 6-3.

The Husker staff is expected to see Dickerson, who would transfer with three years of eligibility, in person this week.

Dickerson has taken a circuitous route to North Dakota. He is from Queens, N.Y. He played two years of high school/prep school in Los Angeles and one year in Dallas. He signed with Murray State last spring over Arkansas and Rutgers, then left the school at the end of the summer and reopened recruiting.

At God’s Academy in Dallas last season, Dickerson averaged 23 points and eight assists a game.

This season at Williston, he averages 20.1 points, 6.1 assists, 3.9 rebounds and 1.3 steals. He shoots 48.2 percent from the field, 33.3 percent from 3-point range and 69.7 percent on free throws.

In a holiday tourney in Arizona, Dickerson had 38 points, nine rebounds and six assists in a 118-115 triple overtime loss.

He has unofficially visited Arizona State and reportedly has offers from Western Kentucky and Florida International, as well as attracting feelers from Iowa, Creighton and Arkansas among many others.

Nebraska has one current scholarship available for 2014-15, and could offer a second if there is any attrition.
