Shrine Bowl: Dixon is Ready

SPARTANBURG, S.C. -- This Saturday, North Carolina commitment Brian Dixon of Tabor City (N.C.) South Columbus will play his last high school football game, and what a way to go out. Representing his home state, Dixon will be covering the likes of four-star wide receiver Eric Huggins, and three-star wide out Reynoldo Hunter in the 68th Annual Shrine Bowl All-Star game.

"I'll be used a little bit on the special teams and they've got me playing corner," explained Dixon.

Dixon can easily focus only on the Shrine Bowl as his recruitment is firmly shut.

"I'm committed to North Carolina and nobody can change my mind," stated Dixon. "Everything is going fine right now, so hopefully after this everything will be all Carolina."

Dixon is scheduled to take his official visit to Chapel Hill on January 14th, but might skip the visit if he is able to get things straight in school to graduate in December.

"If everything goes well with school, I'll probably enroll in January," remarked Dixon. "If that doesn't work out, then I'll enroll in the summer time. I'll find that out as soon as I get back to school [after Shrine Bowl week]."

Dixon ended his senior season at South Columbus by rushing for 1,028 yards and 16 touchdowns on 108 carries. He also proved his versatility by catching 17 passes for 516 yards and eight touchdowns.
