Dixon to stay on West Coast

2014 Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure tight end Bryce Dixon updated FOX Sports NEXT on his recruiting -- and his offer from USC -- at Dana Hills AirStrike over the weekend.

FOX Sports NEXT spoke with 2014 Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure tight end Bryce Dixon in early May when he picked up an offer from USC.

Not much has changed in the meantime for the four-star prospect.

Dixon was with his St. Bonaventure team Saturday at Dana Hills AirStrike in Southern California.

After the conclusion of pool play, Dixon spoke with FOX Sports NEXT more about the Trojans offer.

He recalled the day it came in, "I was on the phone with coach [Lane] Kiffin and coach [Ed] Orgeron when they offered," he said. "They were just talking about how there are not a lot of tight ends with my size and quickness."

Dixon is 6-foot-4 220-pounds. His frame resembling that of current Trojan tight ends Randall Telfer and Xavier Grimble.

Dixon says Trojans offer is a big one for him. "I know they send a lot of people to the NFL and that's where I want to go," he said.

Though he has NFL dreams, Dixon also has big ambitions to double-major in college. "I want to do business and kinesiology," he said.

He already knows he is staying on the West Coast for college, which puts USC in the mix with Oregon, California, and UCLA.

Those are the four schools he's considering for now, though he says he's going to take one official visit out East, most likely to Florida or Miami.

Dixon says the recruiting process has been overwhelming. He admits that during finals he did not make his routine recruiting calls or answer any messages.

He's planning to attend USC's Rising Stars camp later this month.
