Dikembe Dixson plans on an official visit to DePaul’s Lincoln Park campus this weekend.

The 6-7, 190 lb. forward from Mingo County Vocational School in Delbarton, West Virginia is one of the better unsigned players available for the Spring recruiting period. Dixson averaged a double-double of 22 points and 10.5 points at Mingo this season.

Dixson has moved around some during his high school career. He is originally from Freeport, Illinois and spent a couple of years at Bardstown, Kentucky before transferring to Mingo.

Dixson has been receiving interest from a bevy of schools. Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas State, Mississippi State, South Carolina, and Tennessee have all been in the mix for Dikembe this spring.

Following his DePaul visit, Dixson may take visits to Illinois-Chicago and Wake Forest.

"I'm just looking for an equal opportunity to go head to head with the guy at my position for a starting spot," Dixson told Scout.com’s Gene Swindoll. "I also want a coach to stay on me so that he can bring out the best in me and help me get to the next level."

Dixson is a high flying athletic forward who is very good in transition as evidenced in the below video…
