The saying is, "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree," and it obviouly applies to Gerald Dixon in terms of talent on the football field. The son of former South Carolina and NFL standout Gerald Dixon Sr. has all the makings of an elite prospect in the 2011 class at defensive tackle.
We spoke briefly with the Northwestern High product and he gave us the very latest. His early favorites remain the same but there's a new school who has recently began to start showing interest as well from the SEC conference.
In order to improve his stock he also gave us some good news. "I will be there at the Scout.com combine in Charlotte this month." The combine will feature some of the very best talent from both South Carolina and North Carolina. There will be testing, one on ones drills, and seven on seven work.
Stay tuned for a more in-depth interview with Dixon to talk about his offseason preparations and what he likes most about his list of early favorites right here with SCPrepNation.com!
