Dixon hot prospect

KUSports.com, Gary Bedore, May 7, 2008

Lee’s Summit (Mo.) West point guard Michael Dixon, who is Rivals.com’s 87th-rated player in the Class of 2009, tells the recruiting service he has a list of 10 schools.

The 6-foot, 165-pound Dixon has received scholarship offers from Arkansas, Cal-Berkeley, Kansas State, Louisville, Marquette, Missouri, Oklahoma and Purdue. He’s also considering Kansas and Tennessee.

Dixon led Kansas City Pump N Run to the title of last weekend’s Jayhawk Invitational AAU Tournament.

“If it (KU) is a place I would get to play, great,” Dixon told Rivals. “But if not, that’s great, too, because I’m getting my education paid for.”
