A long wide receiver, who could earn playing time immediately

BC Eagles Athletics

Name: Nat Dixon

Position: Wide Receiver

Number: #84

Year: Freshman

Height: 6-foot-3

Weight: 172 lbs.

Hometown: Lynn Haven, FL

2013 Stats (HS): Earned 2013 all-state second-team honors after registering 43 receptions for 1,005 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior receiver ... twice earned All-Bay County Team recognition in 2012 and 2013 ... captured 2012 all-state honorable mention recognition after recording 36 receptions for 662 yards and four touchdowns ... a versatile athlete who captured the 2013 District Championship in the high jump.

2014 Projections: It already appears that some freshmen are sticking out on the wide receiver depth chart. Recent reports have shown that Sherm Alston and Gabe McClary both have gotten reps with the first team, but I haven't heard Dixon's name floated out there yet. But that wouldn't surprise me. Addazio loves the tall wide receivers and Dixon is one of the tallest on the team, so there is always a chance that he sees some playing time this year. But if he starts to fall behind some of the other wide receivers, I would expect Dixon to redshirt this season.

How'd He Get Here: A three star wide receiver from Florida, Dixon committed to BC on Signing Day with offers from Western Kentucky, Elon, South Florida, Chattanooga, Alabama St, Troy and Wofford.

Uniform History: The number 84   Arthur Graham a tight end and captain in the 60's wore it before a career in the AFL where he went on to catch 199 passes for the Boston Patriots. Bill Paulsen, who made the first ever for a BC player against Notre Dame in 1975 wore it. Bob Bicknell, wore #84 at Boston College as a tight end before going on to become a coach in Europe and the NFL.  He is currently the wide receivers coach for the Eagles. Jamal Burke, a wide receiver, wore it during the early 2000's. Kevin Challenger, a wide receiver during the Matt Ryan years wore it as well.
