Bryce Dixon did not see Arizona throwing much to its tight end this past weekend in its upset victory against USC but that's perfectly fine with the 2014 recruit from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect is perfectly comfortable splitting out or even playing wide receiver and the Wildcats throw plenty to those players so Arizona will remain under serious consideration although it's still early in his recruitment.
Dixon and teammate Zachary Green, an Arizona commit, watched the Arizona-USC game in person this weekend and had a great time during the trip.
"With them beating USC it was a big game," Dixon said. "It was a long drive out there but other than that it was really cool. The weather was really good and it was a great trip.
"They don't really throw to the tight end much, I think their tight end had one catch, but I can see myself playing like slot receiver or wide receiver as well as tight end so it doesn't bother me. Everybody was getting pumped up. It was a great environment for the whole game."
Arizona is one of many schools that have already offered Dixon, who also has Cal, Colorado, Miami, Ohio State and Washington on his offer list.
Since he's now seen the Wildcats in person, Dixon said he'll keep researching the program as his recruitment continues.
"I'll keep considering them," Dixon said. "They have a lot of potential in the years to come. A lot of people might want to go there now because they beat SC. That could be something good."
This weekend Dixon and Ventura St. Bonaventure teammates Ricky Town, a 2015 quarterback and Davonte Nunnery, a 2014 athlete, plan to visit UCLA for its game against, coincidentally, Arizona.
The Bruins have already offered Town. Dixon said they've shown serious interest recently in him.
