Major offers for Dixon

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - From the first game of the day until the moment weather prematurely ended the 2012 Heath Evans Foundation 7-on-7 Championship, West Palm Beach (Fla.) Dwyer sophomore wide receiver Johnnie Dixon made himself known on the field with play after play. The 2014 prospect says it was a good day for him and his teammates as a whole.
"It was very fun," Dixon said. "The quarterbacks got a lot of experience today. They did a lot of good things. I thought everyone played good for us today. That is what we are looking for going towards the season."
Colleges already know about the 6-foot, 175-pound wide receiver. He landed a number of major offers over the past couple of months.
"Miami, Alabama, Florida Florida State, USF, and Ohio State," Dixon said of his offers.
He has taken one camp visit already this summer and has two more planned over the next week.
"I went to Miami last Sunday," Dixon said. "Next week I am going to Florida and Florida State."
Dixon talked a bit about his time in Coral Gables at the Al Golden Football Camp.
"Miami was real cool," Dixon said. "I got to see how the coaches are. Coach (George) McDonald is a real nice guy. It was a real good experience."
The talented South Florida prospect knows of at least one other campus he wants to visit whether it is for a summer camp or during the upcoming season.
"I really want to get up to Alabama and see how that is," Dixon said.
At this stage of the process, he doesn't claim a favorite.
"It is all pretty even," Dixon said. "I am just taking it day-by-day."
When it comes time to decide, Dixon will sit down and analyze each school. He is looking for the right fit on and off the field.
"Academics come first," Dixon said. "Playing time and all of that is second. Playing time and bowl games will be important, but most important is academics."
As for a decision timeline, Dixon said his decision will likely come at some point during his senior year.
