Dixon high on Pac 10 program

One of the more dynamic JUCO receivers this past season was Pasadena WR Owen Dixon (6-1, 200) and he's hoping to see some offers very soon from some D-1 programs. JCFootball.com caught up with the gifted wideout recently and he updated us on things including which school he's managed to schedule an official visit with later this month...

Speed kills and Dixon has plenty of that, posting a 15 yard average on 59 receptions while also hauling in 10 touchdowns.

"I can run across the middle and catch it in traffic or I can use my speed (4.4 in the forty) to run by guys," Dixon told JCFootball.com. "It doesn't really matter to me what I need to do or what the offense asks me to do, I'm going to do it."

On school, very much in need of playmakers, has stepped up to the plate with an official visit and they could be offering while Dixon is on campus.

"I'm scheduled to go to Washington on January 23rd," Dixon said. "Coach (Demetrice) Martin who was a coach at Mt. SAC, he knew about me and said he liked me and he wanted me to come up on a visit.

"I don't know much about the program other than that the USC offensive coordinator (Steve Sarkisian) is now the head coach up there now and that they need more playmakers."

Besides Washington, Dixon said Marshall is the school recruiting him the hardest, but he also mentioned schools like Akron, Ohio and several other schools have been in contact as well.

"I'm open to everyone and I want to take my visits first," Dixon said. "My coaches think things will really pick up now that the 'dead period' is over with."

Dixon said he's on pace to finish his two-year degree in May and he'll have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
