USC picked up a big commitment moments ago at the UA Army Bowl as Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventura tight end Bryce Dixon announced for the Trojans.

It was a local battle for Bryce Dixon with the tight end narrowing his choices to USC and UCLA. According to someone close to Dixon’s recruitment, UCLA was leading prior to the athlete departing for San Antonio. The Bruins had come in for two home visits with Dixon and he had yet to meet the new Trojan staff.

Dixon grew up a big USC fan however and we were told at the end of the day, it was too hard to pass up the opportunity to play for his childhood favorite. He’ll officially visit USC (Jan. 17) and although there’s talk he could visit UCLA later in the month, don’t be surprised if the visit to Troy is the only one he takes.

In Dixon, the Trojans are getting arguably the most athletic tight end in the nation. He’s rated the No. 2 TE by Scout.com and has great hands and the ability to make plays down the field.

He plays more like a big receiver than a traditional tight end and isn’t asked to block much by St. Bonny. If he can add some weight and strength, he could develop in to an every down tight end for the Trojans and has tremendous upside.

Greg Biggins has been covering recruiting for almost 20 years, covering the West since the mid-1990's and currently serves as a national analyst for Scout.com/FOXSportsNext.
