Johnnie Dixon could have played his final match for Ohio State in the Rose Bowl triumph over Washington on New Year’s Day, however, the wide receiver will play with an additional collegiate game prior to the NFL Draft. Dixon will get involved in the 2019 NFLPA Collegiate Bowl. The NFL Players Association declared the Complete roster for its Collegiate Bowl on Thursday.
Dixon is coming from a nice career at Ohio State which didn’t seem like it was moving the way he desired for his first couple of years at Columbus. Dixon was a four-star prospect coming from Dwyer High School in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida and the nation’s ninth-best receiver at the 2014 recruiting class in accordance with this 247Sports Composite.
After he came at Columbus, Dixon’s school career began gradually. He played one game as a true freshman at 2014, carrying the ball four times for 20 yards, and finally redshirted. The following year, Dixon again just played one competition, the season opener against Virginia Tech, documenting a single grab for 29 yards.
Expected to have a larger role because he a redshirt sophomore, knee injuries started to creep up to your receiver. Dixon entered the season feeling great but at the end of the year, the knee pain was flared up along with the wideout was sidelined. Adhering to the 2016 year, Dixon considered giving up soccer.
Eventually in 2017, Dixon had the problems in check. Like his recipient teammates, Dixon profited in the significant arm of quarterback Dwayne Haskins along with also a change in offensive attention in 2018. The recipient registered career bests in grabs (42) and yards (669) and once more captured eight touchdown passes.
Dixon leaves Ohio State using another legacy than he anticipated when he dedicated to the Buckeyes from Florida. Though he did not set up the numbers he dreamed , Dixon, together with fellow senior recipients Parris Campbell and Terry McLaurin, became significant team leaders to the Scarlet and Gray within the previous couple of decades.
The Collegiate Bowl will provide Dixon another game-like position to reveal NFL scouts what he could do prior to heading throughout the NFL Combine in late February. The NFL Draft will occur in Nashville in late April.
