Weeks after Under Armour presented Cardinal Newman’s Travis Rudolph and Palm Beach Central’s Kc McDermott with their all-star jerseys, Dwyer wide receiver Johnnie Dixon received his.
The U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Tour stopped by Dwyer on Tuesday morning to present Dixon with his honorary jersey. The 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl is scheduled to be played on Jan. 4 in the Alamodome, and it will be carried by NBC.
“This is a big honor,” Dixon said. “I’ve been looking forward to it since I committed to it and I’m ready to get on the field with the other guys from around the country.”
Dixon is one of the top uncommitted prospects in the county. But the 6-foot, 190-pound senior will verbally commit to a school on Nov. 30, adding that his top five consists of Ohio State, Alabama, North Carolina State, Miami and Tennessee.
In November, Dixon plans to visit Alabama and Tennessee. He will join Dwyer wide receiver Clint Stephens on a trip to Tennessee on Nov. 23 for the Volunteers’ game against Vanderbilt. Dixon said he decided not to take an official visit to Miami because he’s already familiar with the program.
“I’ve been down there so much that I already know about everything,” he said of Miami. “I feel like I don’t need to take an official visit.”
