Dixon Jr., whose father played for South Carolina and whose brother is currently on the roster, redshirted in 2011. Last year he saw action in a dozen games, notably hauling in a tipped interception against Kentucky. But Dixon's biggest contribution so far has been in a recruiting capacity. After committing in early 2011, the Dixon brothers' leveraged their relationship with another Rock Hill recruit, likely playing a role in his eventual commitment. (Hey, that article spends two paragraphs touting Tanner McEvoy and Sheldon Royster as future Gamecock stars! Cool!)
2 starts, 12 games played
