"The visit was good," said Travell Dixon. "This was my first-ever SEC game. The atmosphere was insane. It's a different speed than junior college. Overall it was a good trip.

"It was a different environment. I have never seen anything like it before. It was just great with it being my first SEC game. There was a lot of positive energy.

"It was a good football game. It was a good defensive game. It lived up to my expectations. I wanted to see a good game no matter who won.

"I love the defense at Alabama. That's what I like most about them. Watching how the players prepare for the game was the best part of my visit."

Dixon arrived in Tuscaloosa on Friday and spent time with the team.

"I spoke to Nico Johnson, Ha-Ha [Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix] and one of the junior college defensive ends who was up there. They were just saying how Alabama is a good place to be. They told me if I want to go to the NFL Alabama has the best coaches."

The 6-foot-2, 200-pound corner spent a lot of time with the coaching staff.

"Coach Saban was saying how I am a major priority for them," said Dixon. "He was talking about their style of defense and really wanted me to watch them Saturday night. He told me how it would be when I come in.

"I also spent time with coach Pruitt and coach Smart. They were just saying the same thing. They said I am priority. They talked about how the defense is complex. They said the defense fits me best."

Dixon plans to take all five official visits before announcing a decision next month. Alabama was the first stop.

"My thoughts are the same," he said. "Alabama is obviously in my top five. I am still not sure where I will go. I will probably start setting up visits after the next week. I don't know which schools will get visits yet."
