Virginia football has scored a Signing Day commitment from H.D Woodson (Washington, D.C.) senior Tenyeh Dixon. The 6’0”, 185-pound cornerback had been committed to Temple for several months but decommitted from the Owls on Monday, one day after returning home from an official visit to UVA last weekend.
Dixon, a 247Sports 3-star prospect and Rivals 2-star recruit, took to Twitter to make his announcement.
“After a lot of thinking and talking with my parents and coaches I would like to thank God for blessing me with this opportunity and I would love to announce that I will be continuing my academic and athletic career at the University of Virginia,” Dixon wrote in this tweet. “I would like to thank God for putting me in the position I am in today. #GOHOOS #PROTECTYOURCART #NEWSTANDARD”
Dixon, a 2018 Washington Post second-team all-metro selection at defensive back, is one of three members of Virginia’s 2019 Class likely to play cornerback. The others include South Carolina speedster Fentrell Cypress II and Florida standout Major Williams.
On December 9, one day after former Temple head coach Geoff Collins accepted the same position with Georgia Tech, Virginia extended a scholarship offer to Dixon. The D.C. native committed to Temple last May but decided to take a closer look at Virginia following the coaching change.
