Kansas City (Mo.) Lee's Summit West point guard Michael Dixon is having a strong spring playing for KC Pump N Run. Dixon, 6-foot, 165-pounds, recently picked up a couple new offers and is working with a school list of ten schools.
Louisville and Marquette are the two latest schools to offer Dixon, the No. 87 ranked prospect in the class of 2009. They join Missouri, Purdue, Oklahoma, California, Kansas State and Arkansas as schools that have offered Dixon and are on his school list.
Kansas has been involved with Dixon, but has not yet offered. And Tennessee rounds out the list of schools he is considering. In search of another point guard in both the 2008 and 2009 class, Tennessee has just recently begun to track Dixon but has not offered at this point.
Dixon, who would like to make a decision at the end of the summer, told Rivals.com that he doesn't have a favorite out of his ten. He did, however, indicate that he would like to visit Oklahoma and Louisville prior to making a decision. Missouri, Kansas, Kansas State, Purdue and California have already hosted Dixon on unofficial visits.
Coaching stability is one of the critical factors Dixon will consider before choosing a school.
"How I feel about the coaches and whether or not they will stay at the school is something I'll be looking at," said Dixon. "Style of play is also important, and I be looking at how the players are treated by the fans and the coaches."
A point guard with the ability to both distribute and score, Dixon feels good about the development of his passing game this spring.
"This year I'm playing more as a straight up distributing point guard," he said. "We are running a lot of good stuff on offense, and I'm getting the ball to people where they can score."
The KC Pump N Run are coming off a successful weekend as champions of the Jayhawk Invitational.
