Blue chip QB getting more offers

San Leandro, Calif. Pro-styled quarterback Dennis Dixon now has brought his total of full scholarship offers to six major college football programs.
"I believe that I just got one from Cal," Dixon said about recent extended offers. "That was just today."
Cal-Berkeley has been added to Washington, Colorado, Louisiana State, UCLA and Oregon State on his offer list.
He has no favorite from the above schools and he is considering other schools that might offer him yet.
"It doesn't matter, as I'm pretty much wide open right now," the 6-foot-4, 180 pound quarterback said about any possible favorite. "I don't know to tell you the truth, as it is a tough choice."
He doesn't have a favorite among the schools that have even offered him so far.
"It (offers) is great, but I have got to wait."
At one time his favorite school to watch on television was Florida State and his favorite player to watch was Warwick Dunn. "I still like him (Dunn)."
However, right now "UCLA and Colorado" are recruiting him the hardest with consistent mail.
"None of them right now," Dixon said about visits to his high school. "I guess they are waiting for the camps and stuff."
What are your strong points from your viewpoint?
"It is willing to learn and willing to compete."
Dennis Dixon had a very high completion ratio last season as a junior. He was not positive about the exact ratio, but he thought it was "69" percentage.
Dennis Dixon will be attending the Nike camp in two weeks in Oregon.
"I don't think so," he said in reference to distance from home being an issue.
His parents are willing to have him go to any school that he would like.
"No, they said that they did not have a problem with anything."
"My coach is planning the camps right now," he said about summer camps, "and I think that I'm going to a lot this summer. I'm going to be pretty busy. I'll hopefully go to the ones that I have offers from."
As a junior, he was named first team all-league quarterback. His goal for the coming season is to repeat all-league, win the state championship and to throw "no more than four interceptions." He only had six interceptions last year, while throwing 24 touchdowns.
As far as Dennis Dixon and deciding on a team, it won't be anytime soon.
"I will wait until the final day."
