Dixon's friend and Oregon cornerback Troy Hill, who went to St. Bonaventure, has been keeping in contact with the four-star tight end and letting him know that the Ducks coaching staff want him in Eugene.
"He said that Oregon is really trying to push for me," Dixon said. "They keep telling him everyday."
Dixon said he will be taking an official visit to Eugene on October 19. He and tight ends coach Tom Osbornehave been discussing the different ways Dixon can be effective at his position, and Dixon is liking what he hears.
"I like how they use their tight ends," Dixon said. "They keep them active on the field, not just blocking. I like to catch and run up the field."
Though his official visit to Oregon is the only one set in stone, he does have plans to visit other schools.
As far as a decision timeline, Dixon said it is all up in the air. He currently has a top five of Oregon, USC, UCLA, Floridaand Miami, and wants to make sure he makes the right decision the first time.
"I want to take all of m officials," Dixon said. "I don't want to be one of those players that commits and then decommits."
