Williams-Dixon is a 5-foot-11, 203-pound athlete and one of the most productive backs in the state for his class. He played for Millersburg (Ohio) West Holmes as a junior before transferring to Pickerington North, and last fall racked up a school-record 41 touchdowns to go with 1,300 rushing yards and 500 receiving yards. He had a 7-touchdown game during what was a 12-1 campaign for Pickerington North.

And the record he broke? It was his from the year prior, when he scored 35 touchdowns as a sophomore.

Williams-Dixon is ranked as the No. 24 prospect from the state of Ohio and the No. 79 athlete in the 2024 class, per the industry-generated 247 Composite. Overall, he’s ranked as the No. 677 recruit in the class.

His addition gives Ohio State its 12th known commitment in the class, and continues a recent run of pledges. The Buckeyes have added 6 commits so far in the month of April alone. Ohio State also saw 4-star tight end Max LeBlanc join the group on Saturday. It’s a class that ranks No. 2 in the country.
