Sounds like one of two things happened. Moreno sat on his decision too long and UE went elsewhere. Or more likely Moreno informed the coaching staff he was going to commit elsewhere. I think the latter was the situation and UE got on the phone with Dixon and made their final offer to him.

Much rather have Dixon for 3 years than Moreno for 4 years

Anybody know where Evansville University is? :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though, I like this. He's the stretch 4 that most good clubs have now. When he originally signed with ISU he needed to put on some weight, but otherwise he looked the part.

Since there’s only one scholarship available for 19-20, it’s going to be really interesting to see who gets it. There are already some very fine recruits for 20 who have already been offered and surely there will be more to come this summer.

If I had a chance to sign a LOI next November, I would be asking Coach now where do I sign.

Great news!!

I think we have a really good mix of players for this coming season, should be a very fun ride. I would be wiling to bet McCarty is going to go very deep into the bench next season because we will probably see more pressure defense and more running. He mentioned a couple times that he wasn't able to play that fast last year because he didn't have enough people to do it. I could potentially see a rotation that goes 10 deep. It's tough to play that many guys but it can work if everyone knows their role and what they need to do to win games.

I thought Dixon was a good fit back in October and still do, and I think Walter knows what to do to make this kid successful!

Deep? Having 13 eligible players is huge, having so many versatile players is a plus as well. We wanted another big man and we got one! Congrats to the kid from Tennessee
