Dixon shines

Antwan Dixon had a good IMG Regional 7-on-7 tournament. He's a versatile athlete from South Fort Myers high school.

Antwan Dixon is not the biggest cat out that but he can certainly play the game of football. This standout from South Fort Myers high school in southwest Florida excels at all three phases of the game.

Dixon, 5-foot-7, 165-pounds, plays running back, wide receiver, cornerback and is a return specialists.

At IMG Academy's Regional 7-on-7 tournament he had a terrific showing playing on both sides of the ball. He made a lot of big plays for Team 239 offensively. As a defensive back, he showed excellent man to man cover skills. In fact, he held four-star wide receiver George Campbell (Tarpon Springs, Fla./East Lake) without a reception when they played Team Tampa.

"I have several strengths as a player," Dixon said. "I am versatile and can do a lot of different things for a team. I can play offense. I can play defense. I can play special teams. I can play in the slot. I can play running back. I can play cornerback. I think playing corner is my strong point."

Dixon hasn't generated a ton of interest at this point. Teams will have to overlook his height. But we have seen smaller corners (Tim Jennings comes to mind) make it big in college football.

"I don't have any offers yet," Dixon said. "But I have a lot of interest from Clemson, Georgia and Indiana. Those are my top schools."
