Dixon is a Husker

Trevell Dixon committed to Nebraska for the second time Sunday afternoon, bringing Nebraska's first commitment of the 2013 class back into the fold.

Dixon initially committed to Nebraska last January.

The talented athlete from Baldwin, La., called the Nebraska coaching staff Sunday afternoon to deliver his commitment.

"It was a combination of the coaches and the visit in November," Dixon said.

Dixon initially committed to Nebraska last January, before decommitting in July. Nebraska continued recruiting the 6-foot, 180-pound athlete throughout the fall and earned an official visit from Dixon in November. He forged a strong connection with former Nebraska secondary coach Corey Raymond, but secondary coach Terry Joseph worked hard over the past year to establish a strong bond with Dixon.

The 6-foot, 180-pound athlete chose Nebraska over offers from Houston, Arizona State, TCU, Arizona and others.

Dixon acknowledged in November that he still has academic work to do, but said he felt comfortable at Nebraska.

"The coaches told me that Nebraska would be a good fit for me," Dixon said after his visit. "They care about me. They're going to stay on me about school and make sure that I not only become a great athlete, but a good student also."

Dixon is a three-star athlete and the No. 58 athlete in the country, according to 247Sports.
