Breon Dixon told DawgNation on Thursday that he’s wanted an offer from UGA for some time now, but the wait may not be as painful at the moment.
The 4-star linebacker from Suwanee, Ga., said the uncertainty surrounding the coaching staff, particularly the future of defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt, is a pause for concern.
“I don’t know how their coaches are going to be setup for next year,” Dixon told DawgNation in an interview.
The 6-foot, 216-pound junior from Peachtree Ridge High School said he’d welcome an offer, but he’s curious to see what changes — if any — take place next season.
“I’ve just been letting it play itself out,” Dixon said. “Of course, I’d enjoy one. It’d be a good look for me.”
UGA offer or not, Dixon is highly regarded as one of the top players in Georgia in the 2017 recruiting cycle. He’s garnered heavy interest from several SEC programs, including Tennessee and Florida, and has reported 20 offers. Dixon unofficially visited the Volunteers earlier this season and is planning to visit Ole Miss (Nov. 21) and Florida (Nov. 28) with teammate Deangelo Gibbs, a 5-star cornerback.
Dixon is rated as the nation’s No. 13 outside linebacker in 2017.
