Dixon Signs With Tigers

Glades Central standout Dixon has signed with Auburn.

Belle Glades, Fla.--Auburn added to its signing day haul as Glades Central High star Johnny Lee Dixon followed through with a summer commitment and signed with the Tigers on Wednesday.

Dixon committed to the Tigers following a summer passing camp where Glades Central took home the team title and Dixon earned the individual MVP honors.

The 5-11, 177-pounder has the speed and athleticism to play any position in the defensive backfield, however his reputation to hit opposing players like a Mack truck makes it likely that his first look on the college level will be at safety.

Even on a team that is loaded with D-I prospects, such as Scout.com five star wide receiver Deonte Thompson, Glades Central coach coaches say that Dixon may be the best of the bunch.

Despite sitting out as a junior due to academic issues and having limited visibility to colleges prior to his commitment to the Tigers, Dixon chose Auburn over offers from LSU and Georgia and heavy interest from Miami. However, because of academics he is projected as a sign to place prospect who will have to attend a prep school or junior college before arriving at Auburn.
