Visits Key for Dixon

Visits Key for Dixon

Tito Benach
2014 Dwyer (Fla.) receiver Johhnie Dixon was part of a deflating 44-13 loss to Miami Central on Saturday night which now makes him believe they need to put in more focus during the week.

“We gotta get more focused in practice, we weren’t mentally prepared. We have to practice way more harder and come in with more intensity.”

Dixon still feels positive for the rest of the season as his team looks to make a deep playoff run and is trying to take it one game at a time.

“We’re looking at everyone, I mean this was a wake up call for the season. Mark Kelly our D-linemen, he’s a clown, but after this game he’s focused now I can tell.”

The 5’11 195 pound receiver has a top 3 of Miami, Alabama and Ohio State and recently got a chance to see the Hurricanes scrimmage and hang out with the coaches.

“It went great, met a lot of commits, a lot of great players. I talked to a couple of the current players and it was good. I talked to Herb (Waters), Duke (Johnson), Stacy (Coley) and Malcolm (Lewis). They were telling me that the whole team is family.”

While there, he also got the chance to speak with the coaches who are doing what they can to try and get Dixon on board.

“The same old, that they want me to commit and they want me to be apart of the team.”

Visits are going to be paramount in Dixon’s decision as he has set up two already for Alabama and Ohio State.

“I’m going to Alabama versus LSU and then also Ohio State versus Wisconsin.”

The Dwyer receiver is currently unsure whether Miami will get a visit, considering he’s visited so many times already.

“Not sure yet, I mean I probably won’t have to because I already know the place so well with the campus and the coaches.”

One of the big factors that will influence Dixon’s decision will be his mother’s opinion as he feels it’s only right she help him through the process.

“My mom, she’s been there since day one ever since pop warner. I have so much respect for her, she was at every game and me giving back to her that’s why I do it right now.”

As far as when a decision will come, Dixon expects to announce one following his last visit.

“Hopefully, by the time the last one ends sometime around there.”

When asked what will play into his final choice, Dixon rounded off four important factors.

“Education, stable coaches, playing time and a team with a family style relationship.”

Visits are key and he might not take one to Miami. Kind of hard to take that as positive.
 
U
His momma holds the key...Will come down to us & Bama. Like our chances
 
personally I think he wants to see what kind of year we are having and the severity of sanctions. however if we don't get hit hard and mom says stay home he will.
 
Shoulda asked if his mom has a preference on where he goes and how she likes Golden
 
His mother wants him here, and at school all he does is talk about playing at Miami. Would be very shocked if he doesn't sign with Miami.
 
Whose the last kid we got out of Dwyer? Not hating, just wondering.

I think we land this kid. We have PT to sell to recievers now after losing 2 from 2012.
 
At least he is coming to the UiF/U game. That way it won't be as mind blowing for him to attend a Bama/LSU game. We gotta rock that place on the 7th.

Not positive but I think it was Rashad Butler.

I thought he said he wasn't going to be able to go to the UF game
 
Hopefully it comes down to us and Bama. From there Bama already has a Top 5 WR in the Simms guy from Louisiana, and they have another guy who is top 20. Thats got to help a little bit...

Definitely hoping we finish our WR unit out with Berrios and Dixon, as we all are.

Chad Wilson's son is trying to recruit Dixon to Florida per a gatorbait article today.

UF has gone cold for Dixon, it would surprise me to see if they can get back in the race for him

Any reason for this

They most likely backed off when they found they were in play for Lane & Rudolph. It's not out of the realm of possibilities that UF could begin to recruit him again, but it would surprise me to see them go after Dixon when they're in great shape for Rudolph
 
I sure hope Bama doesn't decide that they really want Dixon. If so, DIixon's mamma's life will get a whole lot easier.
