2015 Wing Dikembe Dixson Will Visit Wake Forest in June

New, comments

Another candidate to fill the final roster spot.

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Dikembe Dixson, a wing from the class of 2015, will visit Wake Forest on June 4th. Wake Forest has yet to offer Dixson, but head coach Danny Manning has been adamant that the team will fill all 13 scholarship spots prior to next season. There are currently only 12 scholarship players on the roster.  Dixson has visited and holds offers from Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi State, and Alabama. He is a consensus 6'7", 190-pound 3-star prospect. He currently lists Tennessee, Mississippi State, and Alabama as his top three.

There are not many highlight tapes of Dixson online, and the most recent ones are approximately two years old, but it's clear that several high major coaches like his game. He has offers from a number of ACC programs, and is the long, athletic wing that the Deacs are looking for. He can attack the glass, and play defense. Will this be the final member on Wake's roster next season? We'll know a lot more after his visit in June.
