Dixon's teammate, Shortridge, was in attendance and figures to be more in-play at this time than Dixon. If the Deacon staff were to receive a commitment from Shortridge, a defensive lineman, and convince Dixon to take an official, however, that could change. As for now, Dixon is gearing up for his first game of the season with highly-ranked Dwyer.
"I didn't play in week one against Park Vista," he said. "I was still very sore, so Coach decided to rest me for the week and save me for the Dwyer game. I'm going to be all over the field. I'm playing outside and inside linebacker and wide receiver when we go to the gun."
Dixon made only two camps over the summer to USF and UCF. While he has 15-plus Division 1 offers, he seems to have whittled his list down to the five aforementioned schools or even less.
"Once I check out Purdue, West Virginia, and Minnesota," Dixon said, "I think I'll have a better idea where I'm going and be ready to commit. I'm looking to go to a college where I can make an early impact on the field. I also want a good connection with the coaches. I think a lot my decision will be based on how the visits go to get a better feel for each university."
Although he did not make the trip to Winston-Salem last weekend, Dixon was on campus for two days during the summer in July. His Wake Forest recruiter is Ray McCartney, who covers the ripe South Florida region for the Deacons. As a junior, Dixon was an All-County performer and had a startling 17 tackles for loss with 75 tackles overall for the Hawks.
