Dixon pledges to the Huskers again

The Huskers got more good news on Sunday, when three-star prospect Trevell Dixon pledged to Nebraska.


It turns out his original choice was the right choice.

"I just committed to Nebraska," Trevell Dixon, a three-star prospect, told Big Red Report on Sunday. "It's a good place for me. It's a good fit."

A West Saint Mary high school (LA) prospect, Dixon is 6-foot-1, 195 pounds. He decommitted from Nebraska in the summer, after originally committing in January to head coach Bo Pelini and secondary coach at the time Corey Raymond.

"Nebraska was in on Dixon early and the Huskers showed they were a program that was definitely wanting him," said FOX Sports NEXT Louisiana recruiting analyst Mike Coppage. "Dixon decided to rejoin the Huskers in large part of Nebraska secondary coach Terry Joseph. Originally Dixon decommitted because of Corey Raymond took a job at LSU, but if Joseph had been hired day one, I don't think Dixon would have opened things back up."

A three-star projected safety according to FOX Sports NEXT, Dixon had offers from TCU, Arizona State, Southern Miss, Louisiana, Texas Tech, and Texas A&M throughout the process.

"My visit to Nebraska in the fall was great. There was nothing that I didn't like about it.

"When I called Coach Joseph today, he was really excited."

Dixon recently played in the Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, where FOX Sports NEXT national recruiting analyst Greg Powers got to see him.

"Dixon played quarterback in high school and is an effective dual-threat, but his future in college is likely on the defensive side of the ball," says Powers. "He is rangy and covers a lot of ground quickly, so his best natural fit may be at safety, but do not be surprised if he grows in to the type of player who could also spend some time up in the box. He is a team leader and hopefully he takes the same level of responsibility with him to defense."

More to come on this developing story later today.
