CORMIER ON DICKINSON
“Wes is an excellent rebounder and a very quick jumper, attributes that will help us immediately on the defensive end. He likely will be our best shot blocker as well. He does have a back-to-the-basket game, but he has never really been called upon to be a high-producing scorer. As he develops, he will make more and more of an impact at the offensive end during his four years at Dartmouth.”
