Dixons closing in on announcement

Brothers DE Gerald Dixon of South Pointe and DL Gerald Dixon Jr. of Northwestern have an idea when the play to announce their commitments.

"January 3rd or 4th," Dixon said. "Our dad is putting something together."

The Dixons plan to go to the same school. USC is the only common offer and the Gamecocks have long been their favorites. But Dixon isn't ready to tip his hand officially.

"We're not saying anything until we get up there and say it," he said.
