Dixon will be tripping to LSU

McKinner Dixon (6-3, 240, 4.6) grew up in Natchitoches (La.) before making a move with his family to Lufkin, Texas. <br><br> The four-star defensive end is on the verge of narrowing his 40-plus offers to five and LSU has an excellent shot at making the cut.

"By mid September I'll have my top five narrowed down," Dixon told Tiger Rag. "Right now it is UT (Texas), Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, LSU and Kansas State. They are all kind of even right now but UT and K-State are at the top."

Texas and Kansas State may be the teams to beat but Dixon has fond memories of his days in the Bayou State and LSU's storied football program.

"As a kid growing up in Natchitoches I always watched them on TV and would tell my dad I was going to play there one day," he said. "I went to their junior day and when I walked out on the field it made we want to play there. That stadium is the No. 1 stadium I have ever seen."

Now that Dixon has a plan and a time frame for trimming down his list he also knows where he wants to take some of his official visits.

"I'll be going to LSU, Texas and Kansas State for sure," he said. "I also want to go to Miami. I may not go to school there but I at least want to see the school and the beach."
