I'm just gonna wait until signing day, just to see how it flows out," Wixson said. I'm looking for some offers instate so I don't have to go far away."

Wixson said proximity to home, along with a good atmosphere, is most important to him when picking a school.

"I've got to have family involved," Wixson said. "Plus the atmosphere has to be good. I want to feel wanted."

Wixon said he was offered by Memphis last December and that he plans on taking visits to Ole Miss, Louisiana Lafayette, Mississippi State, and Southern Miss. Memphis is being considered for the final visit.

Another factor in Wixson's decision will be the coaching staff of whatever school he chooses.

"They don't have to be friendly, but they've got to be tough on me," Wixson said. "They've just got me tuned up and get me where I need to be."
