The three-star wide receiver took to Twitter to announce his de-commitment:
“I want to thank Coach Whitted, Coach Leonhard, and the entire staff at Wisconsin for giving me an opportunity to play football at the next level. I’m extremely grateful for the relationships I have built and their continuous belief in my abilities. With that being said, after many discussions with family, I have decided to de-commit from Wisconsin and open my recruitment back up.”
2023 three-star WR Collin Dixon de-commits from the Wisconsin Badgers
Dixon was one of the biggest commitments for the Badgers in the 2023 class. Listed as an “athlete,” Dixon has a wide set of skills.
According to 247 Sports, Dixon is the 74th-ranked ATH in the 2023 class and the 24th-ranked player in Ohio. Dixon is a talented player, and his de-commitment is a big loss for Wisconsin.
With the announcement from Dixon, the Badgers have now lost three recruits through de-commitment. Although Wisconsin has added two recruits, they are losing some key commitments.
With the loss of Dixon, the Badgers now have a question mark looming over their wide receiver core. Earlier this season, Markus Allen announced his decision to transfer. Now, the Badgers have Chimere Dike, Skyler Bell, Keontez Lewis, and Dean Engram as their receivers at the moment. The Badgers still have plenty of youth on the outside, but they have what could have been a big difference-maker in the wide receiver room.
