Class of 2016 point guard Mikey Dixon made his first trip to Morgantown (W.Va.) this past week. Unsure of what he would find, Dixon was pleased to find it met his expectations and generated excitement as he left with a positive vibe about the Mountaineer program.
“I had a great time at West Virginia,” Dixon said. “The campus is crazy. The campus, the students and everything in the town is all about West Virginia University. But I expected it to be a great campus and have nice sports facilities considering the school is in the Big 12.”
While on campus Dixon had the opportunity to view the new Mountaineer practice facility, which seemed to have capped off the experience.
“That might have been the best part,” Dixon explained. “It’s huge and has everything you could possibly need."
It’s no surprise that Dixon, a 6-foot-1, 160-pound floor general, is receiving increased attention from West Virginia — which has elevated this summer. As a sophomore he averaged 13 points and three assists per game for the Sanford School.
The Mountaineers — who join the likes of Dayton, Boston Univeristy and Loyola (Md.) showing early attention — appear to have exactly what he’s looking for in a future program.
“I’m looking for a school where I can play my game and that’s going to make me a better player.”
Dixon plans to return to West Virginia in the near future.
