Dixon flips to Arizona State


The recruiting gods giveth -- SEE offensive lineman Dwayne Johnson committing to Nebraska on Tuesday.

And they taketh away -- SEE Louisiana athlete Tre'Vell Dixon decommitting from Nebraska on Tuesday..

According to HuskerOnline.com, Dixon has flipped his commitment from the Huskers to Arizona State after making a quiet weekend trip to Tempe.

This is the second time Dixon has decommitted from Nebraska. At one point, he was the Huskers' first commit on this class, but took his name off the list in the summer. He came back aboard the class in January, but now another change of heart.

The decision surprised even his coaches.

"It caught a lot of coaches by shock," Dixon's high school coach Marquis Newsome told HuskerOnline. We were kind of biased towards Nebraska because Bo Pelini came from down here and Coach Coleman played for Bo Pelini, so we all wanted him to go to Nebraska because we thought that would be his best opportunity for him to peruse and excel, but he had to ultimately make this decision for himself, and he felt Arizona State was a better choice for himself."

One addition and one subtraction has the Huskers at 25 pledges at this moment.

Athlete Jacquille Veii (Gaithersburg, Md.) will announce his decision at 10:30 a.m. tomorrow. Nebraska, Maryland or Iowa?

As for any last-day surprises? You never know. Expect the unexpected.
