The list of players transferring from Ole Miss continues to grow with a former Under Armour All-American making his decision known Thursday.
DB Breon Dixon, who played as a true freshman this season, announced that he will be transferring from the program after claiming to be “misled” about the impending NCAA sanctions. Dixon registered five tackles this season, but he was a player the Rebels were likely looking to build on moving forward.
Dixon came out of high school as a four-star player and was listed by the composite rankings at 247 Sports as the 26th overall player from the state of Georgia for 2017. His departure is the latest in a growing list of Rebels leaving the program, and he is a defender that will likely be missed moving forward.
All respect to ole miss fans , and it's been a pleasure being a rebel through the tough times but I've made a decision with my family to transfer elsewhere as of today being misled about the sanctions coming in … Great things to come stay tuned.
