Dixon Talks Bulldog Offer

The Germantown Mavericks were a playoff team a season ago, which in and of itself is a testimony to the coaches and players at the four year old high school. The upstart Mavs believe they can win and they do not subscribe to any talk of them being new to the party. The Mavericks have also begun to produce college level talent with some 2016 prospects picking up SEC offers already.

Taury Dixon is one half of the top cornerback tandem in the state of Mississippi. Dixon plays opposite four star standout Nigel Knott who already holds a handful of college scholarship offers.

A strong player in his own right, Dixon is beginning to come into his own when it comes to recruiting..

"It all really started for me and Nigel (Knott) when we started working out at D1 in Madison and getting faster and stronger," Dixon explained. "After that we went to the camp at Mississippi State. We did pretty good and they ended up offering both of us. They offered us back during the summer."

Dixon reports that he did his part to return the Bulldogs' level of interest by spending some time in Starkville this past fall.

"I went to just about everyone of their home games, "Dixon shared. "It feels like home up there and they always make me feel welcome when I go there. I like all of the coaches. I like it up there."

Louisiana-Lafayette, Missouri and Ole Miss are among the other schools showing a strong level of interest in the talented 2016 prospect. It appears that those programs have time to make overtures of their own.

"I am not planning on making an early decision," Dixon said. "I am going to go to as many camps as I can get to this summer and then I will see how things look after that. I might even wait until after football season before I do anything."

Dixon wants to be recruited and he plans to put his best foot forward in order to get his name and ability out in front of college coaches this spring and summer. At the same time, Dixon does not want to be distracted as he takes the field this fall in what could be a historic season for Germantown High.

The 2016 senior class will be the first to spend all four years at Germantown High. The talented Dixon believes this season can be the best of his prep football career.

"I feel great about our team," Dixon said. "I am excited about getting back out there this spring. We have a lot of playmakers coming back on each side of the ball. We made the playoffs last year and I think we can do better than that this year. If we work hard and get everybody on the same page, I feel like we have a chance to go compete for a state championship."
