Dixon Dominated in the Dome

South Recruiting Manager

Barron Dixon played a big role in Chattahoochee's shut out of Starr's Mill in the AAAA state championship game Friday night.

Barron Dixon moved all over the defensive line for Coach Crowder's Chattahoochee defense and he was unblockable all night.

Dixon is currently playing 6-foot-4, 274 pounds and he showed the ability to pressure the quarterback up the middle or beat defensive ends off the edge.

What really stood out most to me was his effort. He was relentless. He never gave up on a play and although, he finished the night with a respectable four tackles and one sack, he made a much bigger impact than that.

I liked how he played with good separation and quickly recognized where the ball was. He did a great job of disengaging on the inside and dipping the shoulder off the edge when asked to make plays at defensive end.

He chased the quarterback from the pocket a number of times, he had his hands up in passing lanes quite often, and he chased the ball until the whistle blew.

I first recognized Dixon as a Division I prospect as a sophomore with he was playing at around 6-feet 2-inches tall and between 230-235 pounds. He has slowly added weight, added muscle, improved his technique, and he put it all together while leading the Cougars to a perfect 15-0 record.

He is now being considered for a fourth star on Scout. He could play defensive end in a 3-4 front strongside end in a 4-3 front, or a quick interior defensive lineman as a three technique on the next level.

The offers really do not show what type of prospect he really is, so someone is likely going to be getting a steal.

He is set to visit Maryland officially next weekend and Arkansas, Middle Tennessee, and Mississippi State are still high on his list. Georgia Tech and Tennessee are still recruiting him as well, but neither have offered yet.

Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
