Watch List WR picks up two new offers

By Derek Tyson


ROCKLEDGE, Fla. -- Watch List wide receiver Johnnie Dixon (Palm Beach, Fla./Dwyer) is now up to 17 total offers after picking up two more on Friday.

Louisville and Marshall are the latest to offer the 5-foot-11, 186-pound speedy receiver, who also holds offers from schools such as Miami, Florida State, Alabama, Florida, Ohio State and Ole Miss. Dixon said he is humbled by all of his recent offers.

"I just feel blessed to have so many at this stage," he said. "I never thought this would blow up so fast."

Recently, Dixon attended Miami's junior day and came away impressed.

"It was good," Dixon said. "Every time I'm down in Miami it's a real good atmosphere and everyone is cool, so it was real good."

As for his future plans, Dixon said he will likely attend several team camps over the summer and will wait to start to narrow down his recruitiment.

"I'll probably go to some camps," he said. "We have several D-I athletes on our team so we will probably be camping everywhere we can. I'm still just weighing all of my options. I'm pretty sure all of my offers haven't come through yet so I'm just waiting through it."

Dixon is unsure of when he will make a final decision.
