3 Star CB looking closely at Bulls

Since losing Ean Randolph the Bulls have been unable to fill the hole at returner, thats only one of the reason's the USF staff has offered Ricardo Dixon. Not only does he have 4.42 speed, but he's a lock-down corner as well. Find out what he has to say about the Bulls, who else has offfered and much more. Only on USFNation.com!

Ricardo Dixon from Hollandale High School is everything the Bulls are looking for in a cornerback. Especially his knack for returning kicks, something the Bulls lacked since losing Ean Randolph. As a junior Dixon recorded 50 tackles, 1 INT, 30 PBU and returned 2 kickoffs for scores.

"Coach (Larry) Scott offered me about a week ago." Dixon added, "Coach Scott tells me that if I were to commit to USF I would have a chance to play right when I got there."

The 3-star CB also holds offers from Florida State, UCF, NC State, Auburn, South Carolina and Tennessee. He says the Bulls stand out because of their tendency to start freshmen.

"I started following them two years ago when they put in (Matt) Grothe when he was just a freshman. That's when I knew I wanted to take a closer look at them."

Since being offered a week ago, Dixon has not had a chance to call Coach Scott because of his busy track schedule, but before the offer he said he talked with the USF coach half a dozen times.

"I have a track meet tomorrow and there is a long intermission, I'm going to call a bunch of the schools that offered me and USF will be one of them."

As far as visits go – Dixon plans on taking official visits to the out-of-state schools and unofficial visits to the in-state colleges. He'll also go with his team this summer to several camps, although he doesn't plan to participate.

"I'm probably not going to work out at the camps, I'm going to use it as a time to look around at the schools."

At 5-foot-10, 170 pounds Ricardo Dixon runs a 4.42 forty and would be a much needed addition to the USF secondary and special teams unit. Dixon told USFNation to call him back in about 3 or 4 weeks and he'll have a couple visit dates set, possibly one to Tampa.
