"I kept it quiet for a while," said Isaac Dixon of his commitment to Oregon. "I didn't want to get…

"I just got back from Oregon today (Monday)," Dixon added, "It was great. When I got to the hotel they had my Oregon outfit lying on the bed. I changed real quick and walked out with the team on the walk they do to the stadium. I walked through the crowd, everyone was treating me like I was part of the team. That right there kind of impressed me."
Besides Oregon, Dixon says he's been in close contact with two other schools. They are South Florida and Purdue.
"Those are the only three teams I'm talking to right now. My top three in order would be Oregon, USF and Purdue."
Isaac's main recruiter at USF is coach Larry Scott, who also recruited Dixon's three teammates that signed with the Bulls last year.
"We talk about getting me out there on a visit. Its not set yet, it'll probably be the end of December."
Dixon has been keeping a close eye on USF this year since his former teammates are now on the roster.
"I watched the Florida State game. It was crazy seeing my teammate. He scored as a freshman, Sterling Griffin. I saw him playing as a freshman, that makes me think I could do the same."
The defense also impressed Dixon. He said seeing those defensive lineman get pressure means they will take on a lot of the blockers allowing him to roam-free making plays.
"The defense is fast. I like that a lot."
Dixon says Purdue mainly talks with his dad. He hasn't spoke with their coaches in a few weeks, but his dad is working on scheduling a visit sometime this fall. His parents are influential in his recruitment, speaking with all three of his top teams. However, Dixon says when making a decision, the final choice is all his.
"My family really wants me to go somewhere I feel comfortable. If that's close to home they'll be happy, if its Oregon they'll be happy."
In the next few days Dixon is going to talk thing over with his family and a decision could come soon.
"I didn't commit on my visit, no commitment to Oregon. I was close, but I didn't. I wanted to talk to my dad first." Dixon said, "I want to talk to him about my options. I don't have any date to commit, but it could come at anytime."
This season Dixon's Miami Pace team is off to a 2-2 start. He's playing both safety and outside linebacker. USFNation will catchup with Isaac Dixon in a few weeks for another update.
