Tim Dixon - Room to Grow

Tim Dixon is 6'10" and 204 pounds and still growing. A skilled post player rated as one of the top players in the Class of 2011 in Georgia at Columbus Kendrick High. He is expected to gain even more attention as he realizes his considerable basketball potential.

Tim, do you think you're done growing?

"No sir. Two doctors have told me I'll probably be 7-feet before that happens."

What are your goals for further developing your body?

"I need to get stronger and I'm working on a weight program with my coach. I'll continue that during the summer."

You've been getting a lot of attention and your AAU team, the Georgia Blazers, had three legitimate D-1 recruits. How many offers do you have?

"Oklahoma State, Florida State, Clemson, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina and Auburn. I saw Florida State play against Georgia State this year."

You've also been getting a ton of (recruiting) mail.

"Yes sir."

Where does Georgia Tech fall in all those schools showing interest?

"We'll have to see. I'm going to take my time and just see how things play out."

Do you have an idea when you'll decide?

"Probably some time my senior year."

It's early, but have you picked a (college) major?

"Yes sir. I think I'd like to be an architect."

Tim said his favorite part of playing basketball is defense. And, he put this interviewer on the defense with his humility about his skills and stats. He is known for a feathery touch around the rim, his ability to run the floor and now---his talent not to reveal too much until all the options are before him.
