Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure tight end Bryce Dixon, the nation's No. 2 ranked player at his position, will pick one of three hats on Saturday during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

"I'll have three hats, and it will be USC, UCLA and Arizona State," said Mixon. "I might have said Texas before because they were recruiting me a lot real hard, but I'm choosing from USC, UCLA and Arizona State."

Dixon broke down the three finalists.

USC: "I like them because of the pro-style offense. They have new coaches. Coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian) has put out two Mackey Award winners, and I like that a lot. I feel like it's a great place to be. Coach Peter Sirmon just came down from Washington and he's recruiting me."

UCLA: "I like they way they play over there and the way they use my position, the way I play, like a wide receiver or slot, come in and block a little and then go on a seam route, because that's the type of tight end I am. Coach Taylor Mazzone and his father, Noel Mazzone."

Arizona State: "The same thing, they flex their tight end like a slot, bring them in, and that's how I play. And the warm weather too, I like that. Coach Chip Long is recruiting me for Arizona State."

Dixon has already visited Arizona State officially, and said no matter where he picks this Saturday, he'll still visit the two Los Angeles schools.

"I'm still going to visit UCLA and USC officially for sure," said Dixon. "My commitment will be like 98% on Saturday. And then after the visits, I'll be 100%. I did visit USC and UCLA unofficially but I want to visit officially."

Dixon wouldn't publicly acknowledge a leader, but said he had a good idea.

"In my heart, I know where I'm going to go," said Dixon. "I can't wait to get this over with."
