Dennis Dixon Impressed After First Official Visit
6-4, 180, 4.5
San Leandro HS, (CA)
Dennis and several San Leandro players had a chance to visit the Beavers when the Bruins came to town several weeks ago. There were plenty of reasons to enjoy this visit more than the first. "My trip went great, and I had a chance to talk to the coaches and I felt good about their program. It was my first official trip, and I liked it a lot."
"I had a baseball commitment this summer and couldn't go to the Beavers' Camp. I came up twice during the season, and it was good to see the stadium when the fans are in it. It was wild because they had that place packed full. I saw their plans for expanding the stadium in 2005, and I'm really curious what it will be like then."
"I really liked the town too, and the smaller size is fine for me because the people are all real friendly." Dennis is also looking at UCLA, Oregon, USC, Cal, and Washington. While four of the schools are major cities that won't necessarily play an advantage. He liked the campus and facilities at Oregon State in addition to the game day activities.
Dennis is the starting quarterback for San Leandro in Northern California, and he's in the process of leading his team deep into the play-offs. Last Friday, they beat Pittsburgh 38-24, and this week they'll take on Foothill. His team has been on a roll all season, and he'd like to continue the pace.
After his high school season Dennis will have several more official trips. He'd like to stay in the Pac-10, however he said it was way too early to name a leader. He also realizes that most of the schools he's considering will take multiple quarterbacks so he doesn't feel rushed or cornered to make a decision before taking all of his trips.
