No doubts for Dixon

Alpharetta, Ga., three-star defensive line standout Barron Dixon had not been on Mississippi State's campus since the Arkansas game in November.

The 6-foot-4, 270-pounder spoke fondly of that visit and how much of an impact it had on his commitment to the Bulldogs two weeks ago. This time around Dixon and his family were able to see the school atmosphere and what the vibe was from the rest of Starkville.

"I think this weekend I got to see the actual campus," Dixon said. "During the Arkansas game when we got there it was night time and we didn't want to get lost or anything. We wound up just going to the stadium and then home. This time I got to see the dorms and where I'll be staying and study hall where I'll be spending most of my time. I got to spend some time with the d-block, that's what they call the defensive line."

Dixon stated that his official visit this weekend made him realize that he made the right decision in choosing MSU.
