Talented two-way standout Tre'Vell Dixon committed to Nebraska in
the final weeks before signing day. The 6-1, 185 pound Dixon played on both
sides of the ball during his career at West Saint Mary High School in Baldwin,
La., and he is expected to begin his NU career at receiver. Dixon produced big
numbers as a quarterback each of the past two seasons. Dixon's senior season
was cut short by injury, but before being sidelined he rushed for 700 yards and
passed for another 700, while accounting for better than 20 touchdowns. Dixon
also saw time in the defensive backfield. As a junior, Dixon posted big numbers
as a quarterback. He rushed for 780 yards and eight touchdowns, while averaging
better than 10 yards per carry. Through the air, Dixon completed nearly 60
percent of his passes for 1,700 yards and 14 touchdowns. His play helped West
Saint Mary High to a 6-5 record and a trip to the Class 2A state playoffs.
Dixon is also a standout on the track at West Saint Mary High where he competes
in the 100 and 200 meters. Dixon's versatility on the football field shows in
his recruiting rankings. He is listed among the top 25 athlete prospects in the
country by both Rivals and 247 Sports, while Fox Sports lists him among the
nation's top safety prospects. The recruiting services also list him among the
top 20 overall prospects in Louisiana. Dixon also visited Houston before
