By all accounts Florida’s 2013 recruiting class is terrific, it is ranked in the top five nationally.
So with recruiting for next season gong so well, it is not a surprise to hear that UF is already working on the Class of 2014.
On Thursday, a Florida Gators football coach watched Palm Beach (Fla.) Dwyer receiver Johnnie Dixon at practice, and apparently liked what he saw.
“Coach (Aubrey) Hill was out at my practice today,” Dixon told Gatorcountry.com. “After practice he told my coach that I was looking real good and that he was offering me a scholarship to Florida.”
The 6-foot 186-pound Dixon now has four scholarship offers.
Florida joins Alabama, Florida State and Miami as the lone schools to offer Dixon. Even in such company, Dixon said the Gators’ offer is special.
“I grew up a Florida fan,” Dixon said. “So, this is a dream offer from a dream school. It really means a lot to be offered by Florida so soon.”
That being said, this summer Dixon is planning trips trips to the schools that are recruiting him the hardest thus far.
“I want to camp at Florida for sure this summer,” Dixon said. “I’m also going to try and camp at Alabama, Miami and Florida State.”
As a sophomore last season, Dixon had 365 yards and five touchdowns receiving while adding 95 yards and another two touchdowns rushing.
