Dixon sees quite a few visitors at practice

The 5' 11", 190 pound defender out of Pace was pulled out of his classroom so he could be spotted by a college coach.

"Oregon came by the school," added Isaac Dixon. "Coach Neal wanted to size me up, and see I passed the look test, so he pulled me out of class to get a look."

Coach Neal must have liked what he saw.

"Coach (Neal) told me I had a scholarship, so I guess he was pleased (laugh). He just told me about their academics and all of the new facilities they have built. He also told me how they use their defensive backs. I will probably play strong safety if I go there."

Dixon has spotted several coaches at his school this week.

"FIU and South Florida came by here today. Wisconsin, Oregon, Oklahoma State, Miami, Kansas State, Virginia, and Stanford came by Monday. There have been a bunch of them."

Which schools have now offered?

"I have offers from Oregon, FIU, Ole Miss, Oklahoma State, and South Florida."

Who are his top schools?

"I like Miami, Alabama, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, and Oregon. All of them are on the same plane with me. I am not interested in one more than the other. I am really not focused on that right now. I am just keeping my grades straight and staying in shape."

What is going on with Miami?

"I know I am going to get an offer from them, but they have not offered yet. They are sending a lot of letters though and they came by practice. They want me to come to their camp and get a good look at me."

Where else will Dixon camp this summer?

"I am going to the Oklahoma State camp, and I know I am going to Alabama. I do not know about the rest of them."

What are Oklahoma State's positives?

"Coach (Robert) Gillispie told me to follow my heart and think really hard about where is best for me. He is a good guy. He said I could come in and play rover, and if I performed the way I am capable of playing, the position is open."

And Ole Miss?

"I talked to Coach Vaughn earlier, but he is mostly communicating through my head coach. They are also looking for some safeties to come in and play as a freshman."

What about Alabama?

"I am suppose to get an offer from Alabama and Tennessee on Monday, but I do not know yet. My head coach told me about Alabama and Tennessee. Both schools were over here at practice, and they told coach that an offer was coming in the mail."
