Noah Dickerson, a heralded 2015 big man recruit who at one point committed to Georgetown, is back looking for a school.
The 6-foot-8 power forward from Montverde Academy (Fla.) asked for his release from Florida, ESPN reported. Dickerson waited until after the Gators found a replacement for head coach Billy Donovan, who took over the same position with the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder. Florida hired Louisiana Tech head coach Mike White last week.
ESPN ranks Dickerson as the No. 51 prospect in the 2015 class.
He initially picked Georgetown during May 2014 and then decommitted at the end of June. In between he shined at a showcase event for high school talent. Whether that factored into his decision or not, Dickerson left and eventually chose Florida.
Certainly there is the question about whether Dickerson has interest in Georgetown - and vice versa considering the Hoyas were left at the altar and have an interesting roster heading in the 2015-16 season.
Georgetown has three members in its 2015 class including center Jessie Govan and power forward Marcus Derrickson. Rising sophomores Isaac Copeland, a Big East rookie team selection, and Paul White played significant minutes at forward last season. That quartet could eat up plenty of minutes at the power forward and center without even factoring in senior center Bradley Hayes and rising sophomore Trey Mourning.
The Hoyas are thought to be in pursuit of guards and wings who can provide depth immediately. D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera, L.J. Peak, Tre Campbell, Reggie Cameron and incoming recruit Kaleb Johnson are the primary options.
