Detroit Renaissance WR Dana Dixon, a teammate of MSU verbal Chris Norman, met with Mark Dantonio…
Renaissance Athlete Has First Offer
It was a perfect four for four for Detroit Renaissance DB/WR Dana Dixon. At this rate, he should just keep sending out tapes. "Well, Northwestern called and told me he was offered," said Renaissance assistant coach Antoine Edwards told Scout.com, "the official offer is in the mail and Illinois is close to offering, Michigan State is close, West Virginia is close and those are really the only four tapes we've sent out." With one offer already in hand, Dixon headed to East Lansing for Michigan State's junior day on Saturday. He was accompanied by teammate Chris Norman, who has already committed to the Spartans. "I really liked it there," Dixon said, "I like the coaches and I'm really looking forward to coming back. I had a one on one with Coach Dantonio, they're close to offering me, they just want to see me catch the ball some more and see me add some more weight." At 6'3, 175-lbs, Dixon does have room to grow, but he has started on both sides of the ball since his sophomore season and has proven to be a natural playmaker. He has played wide receiver, free safety and cornerback and that begs the question: where will he line up in college? "He likes offense," said Edwards, "he likes defense too but every kid likes to score touchdowns. As for the schools, it's split," he continued, "Northwestern offered him as a wide receiver, MSU really likes him at WR, Purdue likes him on offense, but West Virginia really wants him as a defensive back. It is a premium that he is 6'3 and can play corner." Dixon says he doesn't know if he will be out to any more junior days, but does plan on hitting a few camps this summer. In addition to the schools mentioned, he also reports interest from MAC schools, particularly Miami-Ohio and Toledo.
