The latest target on the Longhorns' recruiting radar is three-star running back Lyn-J Dixon, who picked up a Texas offer Tuesday.
The Longhorns' offer adds to the 5-foot-10, 177-pound RB's already lengthy list of college interest, including from Alabama, Oklahoma, Florida, Georgia and many others.
Scout Sophomore Year Evaluation
Dixon produces. Team stack the box against him, so his yards are tougher than some think, but he does some dancing in the backfield, but he knows how to get up the field. He loves to jump-cut, use the spin move, and make defenders dive at air. Very good, quick feet. Moves fast, but displays good balance and plays under control. Can be in the backfield, in the slot next due to his hands. Great in-space player.
Strengths: Balance, Change-of-Direction, Slot Ability
Areas to Improve: Power, Size
