Dawgs offer Dixon

Kenneth Dixon, the 2,200-plus yard rusher from Strong (Ark.) HS, received an offer from Louisiana Tech and you can get his reaction here. Which schools are at the top of Dixon's list? Will he camp at Tech this summer?

"Coach (Pierre) Ingram is recruiting me for Louisiana Tech," said Kenneth Dixon (5-11, 210, 4.57). "He told me I'm his back; I'm the one he wants at running back for Tech.

"He's cool. I like him. We've bonded very well. When I talk to him, I like that I can say what I want without worrying about anything. He keeps it real with me and I keep it real with him."

Dixon is already familiar with the Tech staff, having visited Ruston for Junior Day. In addition, the staff evaluated Dixon in person during spring training.

Which schools have offered and who are the current frontrunners?

"Tech, ULM, Memphis, Central Arkansas, Arkansas State and Missouri State have offered," said Dixon. My favorites are Ole Miss, Tech, Arkansas State and Memphis.

What are Dixon's immediate plans?

"I have Ole Miss camp this week and then Louisiana Tech camp on June 12th," he said. "Other than that, I'm just working out this summer. I'm squatting 500 pounds, benching 300 and I hang clean 275 pounds."

Last year, Dixon led his team to a 10-2 mark. He frequently took snaps out of the Wildcat and simply picked the best route to the end zone.

A durable back, Dixon carried 232 times for 2,205 yards and 36 touchdowns as a junior.

"We should go 15-0 this year," he said. "We return all five starters on the offensive line, and our defensive line is also strong."
