|Dixon signs with BRCC|
Baton Rouge Community College men's basketball coach Todd Foster claims his recruiting class is as good as any school's in the state of Louisiana.
Foster had already signed Kellon Lee of Abbeville, Xavier Blackburn of St. Thomas More and Jacoby Colbert of Westgate.
He put an exclamation point on that class by signing Class 3A Player of the Year Torrey Dixon of Vidalia High.
"We worked very hard to sign Torrey," Foster said. "His versatility is what makes him so attractive. He can play any position. And there's no doubt he can play at the Division I level."
The 6-foot-3 Dixon averaged 26 points a game for the Vikings, who defeated Carroll High for the state championship on March 12.
Dixon also led the Vikings in rebounds (12.0) and blocked shots (4.8).
Foster said Dixon will play the No. 2 or No. 3 position, which sits well with the Viking senior.
"I played guard in junior high, but haven't played there since," said Dixon, who has a 6-foot-9 wingspan and 40-inch vertical leap. "I like handling the basketball. I just have to work harder on the ball-handling skills. I feel like I can contribute next year and I'm looking forward to moving on to a Division I school in two years."
Dixon was recruited by several junior colleges, Louisiana Tech and Southern.
"I like the coaches at Baton Rouge and I was very comfortable there," Dixon said. "And it's close to home
Foster said he is impressed with how hard Dixon works.
"He carries himself well and he is a character, which fits right in with the other players," Foster said.
Foster is the first men's basketball coach at Baton Rouge Community College, which started up its basketball program last year.
"We've got a great new $13 million arena and we're excited about what's going on at our school," said the former Christian Life High coach. "Our enrollment is at 18,000 and we're growing. We hope to have young men from Vidalia continue coming our way."
Vidalia High coach Robert Sanders said Dixon will do well at the Baton Rouge school.
"They got an outstanding player in Torrey and he will contribute," Sanders said.
