Report: USC TE Commit Bryce Dixon Cancels UCLA Visit


USC has entered the home stretch of the recruiting season with a nice head of steam and that momentum hasn’t slowed down after a huge recruiting weekend.

Steve Sarkisian and his staff apparently got even more good news this weekend. Four star tight end commit Bryce Dixon has cancelled his planned official visit to UCLA next weekend, according to ESPN’s Blair Angulo.

According to USCFootball.com’s Gerard Martinez, Dixon will instead take an unofficial visit to USC next weekend.

Dixon committed to the Trojans at the Army All-American game on January 4th, but his recruitment never slowed down as most observes believed that UCLA still had a shot to flip him in time for signing day. An official visit to their crosstown rivals scheduled for the final weekend of the recruiting period loomed overhead for USC, with Jim Mora Jr. expected to make a strong push.

The cancellation of that visit signals that Dixon is solid and the Trojans no longer have to worry about UCLA’s meddling.

USC had an in-home visit with Dixon during the week. Combined with Dixon’s visit to USC this weekend, the 6-4, 220 pounder seems settled on his choice.

Dixon is USC’s lone tight end commit in this class and could push for immediate playing time. The departure of Xavier Grimble has opened the door as the Trojan’s return just two scholarship tight ends — Randall Telfer and Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick.

      He’s been committed to usc. Usc has the #32 class, UCLA #17 – usc victorious? LMAO

      • Pridenpoise

        UCLA has been USC’s bitch for many years, yes they won the last couple but that is going to change, sanctions or not USC is coming back with a vengeance, so laugh at that Troll.

        • anno nimus

          “Usc coming back with a vengeance” please explain, with something that has substance, not your typical delusional response, “because we’re SC” crap.

          • Pridenpoise

            Why would I explain anything to some Troll, facts are the only way UCLA can beat the Trojans is when there are ridiculous sanctions levied on them. Sanctions will soon be over, and the Bruins will suffer.

          • anno nimus

            and why are you on sanctions? Becauof the University of South Central are f******g cheaters!!! Easy to win when you cheat. When you don’t cheat you can’t beat us, you remember the ’90s.

          • Pridenpoise

            I’m sure nobody on the Bruins has every taken cash, your a Fuc***g moron if you believe that. Reggie Bush was the idiot and it’s BS that 5 years later USC is still paying for his indiscretions. Your delusional if you think accepting money has anything to do with the ass kicking that USC laid on the Bruins. Now STFU and get back under your bridge loser.

  • anno nimus

    Usc on a “full head of steam”? They have more decommitments than commitments the past 2 weeks. Please explain how that term applies here.

    • futuretrojan

      Decommitments from players they were no longer interested in…this is a good solid recruiting class

      • anno nimus

        Yeah, right. Put the pipe down.

        • futuretrojan

          Well I mean, what do you expect? Perfection? Wake up and smell the coffee

          • anno nimus

            Fair enough, have a good night, my friend.
