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.
