recruit757 Fab 30: Charles Dixon – Indian River #29
by Andy Hilton, recruit757
Indian River looks to be loaded this fall, and one key player on the defensive side of the ball made it into our Fab 30 and has already made his college commitment.
Heading into the regular season, we recognize the top 30 senior prospects in the 757. We’ve scoured the region for talent for almost ten years now, keeping an eye on the best of the best, but also looking for opportunities to connect athlete and high school programs with college coaches. Coming in as the 29th best senior prospect region-wide is Indian River Linebacker Charles Dixon.
#29 Charles Dixon (2019 MLB 6-0 230) – Indian River High School
Charles Dixon has been termed a “tweener” by many college coaches. He’s big as a linebacker. He’s big enough and certainly strong enough to play defensive line at the high school level. In fact, he’s played on the line some at Indian River. That “tweener” status makes it a little tougher to get recruited.
Numerous college coaches attended Indian River High School’s college workout day in May of this year. Virginia Tech, Old Dominion, Marshall, Liberty, William and Mary, Richmond, Campbell, Hampton, and quite a few other regional schools were in attendance to see the athletes on the roster in action. There’s no shortage of studs at Indian River now and expectations are high for the fall.
Morgan State Assistant Coach Logan Williams was in attendance and he liked what he saw in Dixon. Charles made it up to Baltimore for a visit in June, loved it, got an offer, and by the end of the month, he had accepted the offer to play college ball at Morgan State.
“(Charles is) a kid that every coach would love to have in his program. He does everything you ask of him,” Indian River Head Coach Glenwood Ferebee said of Dixon. The fit at Morgan State was apparently excellent.
Now Dixon and the Braves head into the 2018 season. Indian River opens with a game against Norview at home on Thursday, August 30.
