Marcus Dixon progressing well

Recently recruiting expert Scott Kennedy spoke with four-star Vanderbilt defensive end commit Marcus Dixon about the status of his knee injury and his thoughts regarding his commitment to the Commodores.

Marcus Dixon has not gotten on the field this year because of a knee injury he suffered early in the season, but he is now getting stronger and ready to get serious about his rehab assignment.

"I was doing the bike this week, but the doctor told me to hold off and just do leg raises this week," said Dixon. "I'm supposed to start swimming next week too. I'm hoping that will really help with my flexibility. I'm doing pretty good right now."

Dixon's recruitment has begun to cool off now a little bit in combination with the injury and also his firm re-committal to Vanderbilt. "This weekend ended any doubt. I think I can go in and help at Vanderbilt, and they're playing good football. At first I thought I might need a redshirt, but they way they are talking, they could use me next year it looks like to add some depth to the defensive line. I was actually thinking really hard about Georgia for a while. I almost changed my mind, but with the way that Vanderbilt has stuck by me with the injury, and the way they're playing now, my mind is set now. I want to be part of building a program rather than being part of one that's already established."

Dixon is a member of the BorderWars 101 Team and is ranked a 4 star prospect at defensive end by
