Name:
Tre Nixon
Town:
Viera, Fla
School:
Viera
Position:
WR
Size:
6-foot-1, 175
Class:
2016
Recruitment:
Florida, Georgia (1/14), Ole Miss (1/22), Penn State, Alabama
Scout.com Ranking: No. 86 overall prospect/No. 13 WR

Scout.com evaluation: The first thing that comes to mind when we watch Tre's video up top is "polished". He catches the ball away from his body and runs great routes. The next thing that jumps out is his hard cutting ability and the ability to get into 6th gear in a hurry. That extra burst and ability to make hard cuts makes him really tough to defend. Nixon looks like your perfect slot guy who can catch middle screens and make things happen in the open field while also finding the open seams in the field.

Tre has been one of the fastest risers in Scout's recruiting rankings. He jumped nearly 200 spots to No. 86 in the latest rankings. Tre caught 74 passes for 1,224 yards and 18 touchdowns while helping Viera win the 7A State Championship in the state of Florida.

Scout released their trends Monday and have selected Florida. Nixon visited Georgia this past weekend and reportedly had a great trip. Don't sleep on the Rebels as they host him this weekend.
