Eric Dixon, a resident of Willow Grove is suddenly become very popular amongst all the Division 1 Colleges. The 6 foot 7, 252 lb. forward from Abington Senior High School, began his junior year basketball season, with many offers under his belt. His first offer was from St. Joseph University last December. It has now grown to Georgetown, Virginia, Miami, Seton Hall, Oklahoma, Temple, Pitt, Penn State and just recently, the one that he was hoping for, Villanova.

Dixon averaged 19.2 points per game last year, as a sophomore. His Abington team went on to win the District1 6A title. For the last two consecutive years, Eric was selected to the USA Men’s Junior Nation Team, October mini camp.

There is no commitment made by Eric Dixon thus far. He plans on considering all offers. His fans will anxiously be awaiting the big decision.
