Dixon will take his last visit to Utah this coming weekend on January 31st. The Utes under the guidance of new head coach Urban Meyer have done a terrific job on the recruiting trail since taking over the job.
If the Utes are able to land Dixon it would quite a feather in their cap. Dixon has only lost three high school football games his entire high school career, all of them to Concord (Calif.) De la Salle. No harm in that De la Salle has won 138 straight games.
Dixon’s record was 36-3 as San Leandro starting signal caller. He was superb as a senior throwing for 2,736 yards and 30 touchdowns while only throwing eight interceptions. For his career Dixon has thrown for 6,189 yards, 77 touchdowns and 21 interceptions.
Dixon is a member of the Rivals100 top 100 team, rated by Rivals100 as the nation’s second best dual-threat quarterbacks and ranked as the 15th best prospect at any position in the state of California.
Dixon has taken trips to Washington, Oregon, Oregon State and San Diego State. Utah is now on deck.
The new Utah offensive coordinator Mike Sanford did a great job coaching quarterbacks while he was with Notre Dame. He helped turn a raw Jarrious Jackson into a quarterback that is now in the NFL.
