Recruiting: Tre’vell Dixon decommits (again), flips to Arizona State

Athlete Tre’vell Dixon twice committed to Nebraska. And now twice, he’s decommitted from the program.

When Signing Day rolls around tomorrow, the 6-foot-1, 195-pound athlete will sign with Arizona State, not NU, according to Husker Online.

“He was very indecisive, because he was very torn between Nebraska, Houston and Arizona State,” Baldwin (La.) West St. Mary coach Marquis Newsome told HO. “I’m guessing the trip to Arizona State went better than he led on. He kept it real close to the chest. I assumed it was between Nebraska and Houston, but whatever happened at Arizona State turned his head around and he ended committed to them.”

Dixon could have played wide receiver or safety for the Huskers. He committed to NU in January 2012, decommitted in July …

Big Fat Recruiting Update, Jan. 21

We’ll get to visit recaps and more updates quickly, but first a recap of several commitments since Friday. A major hat tip to Jon Nyatawa for writing up stories on those commitments.

Cethan Carter: The 6-foot-4, 240-pounder appears to be a cross between Ben Cotton and Kyler Reed. A pretty good blocker mixed with a mid-range pass-catcher, even as an H-back. How fast Carter turns out to be will inform how the Huskers use him. If he’s a 4.6 40-yard dash guy, you can send him up the seam, like NU did with Reed. If he’s more in the 4.8/4.9 range, he’ll have to be a physical blocker and a good possession receiver in the red zone. Think of JB Phillips. Or Ryan Hill.…

Recruiting: Tre’vell Dixon commits to Nebraska (again)

Tre’vell Dixon, an athlete from Louisiana, was once the first member of Nebraska’s 2013 recruiting class before he decommitted during the summer. But he’s back on board now.

Multiple recruiting websites are reporting Dixon’s decision Sunday to once again make a nonbinding pledge to Nebraska (Rivals, Scout and 247 Sports).

Dixon’s a 6-foot, 180-pounder who could play either receiver or defensive back, but his preference would appear to begin his collegiate career on the offensive side of the ball. He was a quarterback for West St. Mary High School in Baldwin, La.…

Recruiting: Orlando WR leaning heavily toward Nebraska

Nebraska wide receiver target Dominic Walker received an in-home visit from Husker offensive coordinator Tim Beck Thursday. Beck, Walker said, pushed for the commit. He didn’t quite get it, but NU’s in the top two with Cincinnati, which just lost its coach to Tennessee.

“I like both of them but I probably like Nebraska a little more because they have more to offer than Cincy,” the 6-foot-2, 185-pound Walker told the Orlando Sentinel about Nebraska. “They have the great facilities and great training and everything is first class all the way.”

Walker decides Dec. 30 at the Offense/Defense All-American Bowl in Houston. He’s a three-star prospect through most major scouting services with the exception of ESPN, which lists Walker as a four-star and the 238th …

Recruiting: Huskers a hit with JUCO DTs

You may not have known it, but Nebraska conducted one of its most crucial visit weekends in some time during its 38-14 win over Minnesota. That’s because three junior-college defensive tackles made the trip to Lincoln for the game, and immediate help on the defensive line is NU’s No. 1, unquestioned need for a potential national title run in 2013.

The highest-rated of the visiting tackles — Toby Johnson — probably can’t offer the Huskers quick help because he tore up his knee a few weeks ago. But he has the kind of SEC frame that makes him a must-recruit anyway. And Johnson appeared to love his visit.

“I just liked the whole game atmosphere,” he told Husker Online. “It felt real to me. …

Recruiting: Husker commit reacts to Raymond’s departure

Assistant coach Corey Raymond is leaving Nebraska for the defensive backs job at LSU. For now, that news apparently isn’t influencing Husker recruit Tre’Vell Dixon.

Dixon, from Baldwin, La., won’t be making any impulse decisions. He announced his oral commitment to NU’s 2013 class in January.

“I’m still committed to Nebraska right now,” Dixon said Monday night in an interview with Huskers Illustrated, the World-Herald’s recruiting partner.

There’s more on this storyline at HuskersIllustrated.com. Dixon still hasn’t visited Lincoln, but he and Raymond formed a strong bond during the recruiting process. Dixon’s high school coach, Ryan Antoine, played for Raymond in New Iberia, La.

Here’s what Antoine told Huskers Illustrated Monday night: “Tre’Vell is Tre’Vell. We’ll see what he does. I don’t think this …

Recruiting: First 2013 commit from Louisiana

The 2012 recruiting class is not yet in the books, and Nebraska has its first 2013 commit.

It comes from Baldwin (La.) West St. Mary athlete Tre’vell Dixon, who’s being courted by NU secondary coach Corey Raymond as a defensive back recruit. The 6-foot, 180-pound Dixon has played quarterback at West St. Mary for two years. But he seemed OK with the move to the secondary, and Dixon’s head coach — Ryan Antoine — played for Raymond in New Iberia, La.

“I can see everything and I like to be able to see everything, so I feel pretty comfortable with playing defensive back,” Dixon told Huskers Illustrated. “I need to get better at my backpedaling. I’ve been working on it on the side. I haven’t …
