Dixon appeared in four games for the Huskers in 2018, all on special teams. He decided to leave the program following spring practice.
Dixon is a former four-star recruit and was a member of Nebraska’s 2017 recruiting class. The 6-foot, 220-pound native of Suwanee, Georgia was ranked as a top 300 player in his cycle. He had over two dozen offers out of high school.
It was not mentioned whether or not Dixon plans a return to the Division I ranks after spending time at Iowa Western.
