BREAKING NEWS: Dixon will be a Tiger

Reserve (LA.) East St. John receiver Ricky Dixon was considered an LSU lock very early in the recruiting process but many started to worry when he talked fondly of Ole Miss and Mississippi State.

According to Dixon, though, there is now no need to worry.

"I told coach (Les) Miles about an hour ago that I was committing," Dixon said. "I told him I was going to be an LSU Tiger."

How did Miles react to the news?

"He was excited," said Dixon. "He said congratulations and then he said boy this has been a roller coaster ride and I'm glad it's over."

Dixon said that he always knew LSU had everything he was looking for but this weekend everything just clicked.

"When I got down there I just thought about how good the program was and how it was right here at home," he said. "Me and Ryan (Perrilloux-host) talked about everything and that made me realize that this is where I needed to be."

Dixon said he will publicly announce his decision on Wednesday at school.
