Junior Report: McKinner Dixon

Lufkin's <b>McKinner Dixon</b>is one of the top DT's in Texas this year and his offers reflect that, showing scholarships from major programs from all over the country. Does he have a top five?

"My top five right now are Texas Tech, LSU, Texas, Oklahoma, and Florida," said Dixon. "Although, if Miami offered soon I would bump UF off that list."

What does he like about Tech?

"Texas Tech really shows me the most interest right now and I receive hand written letters almost daily from them," said Dixon. "I don't know what it is about Tech but it just felt like a home when I received my offer from them."

Dixon also mentioned that he and Tech coach Bill Bedenbaugh speak on a weekly basis.


"I grew up near there and ever since I was a little kid I've wanted to be a tiger," said Dixon. "It would feel good to go home to play."


"They have the biggest weight room I've ever seen and great facilities too. It's a great school too," said Dixon.


"they have that juggernaught defense that's always one of the best in the country," said Dixon. "I really like their aggressive scheme."


"I don't know much about them aside from the fact that they are near the beach," said Dixon. "I actually haven't received that much attention from them since they offered."


"They are an outstanding team that just keeps putting guys in the NFL," said Dixon. "Last year they put 6 in the first round alone."

Would sitting behind the depth at Miami or LSU scare him a little?

"I really want to see the field early, that's why Texas Tech basically has the edge on all of those other schools right now," said Dixon.
