TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –– Antwaun Dixon of Marietta, GA, considered one of the top high school wing players in the nation, has signed a national letter of intent to play basketball at Florida State University.
Dixon, a 6-5 small forward, was a second team All-Georgia selection last year. He averaged 16 points and 9.5 rebounds per game last season while leading Wheeler High School to a 26-3 record and the state quarterfinals. He scored a career-high 37 points as a senior against Marietta High. Wheeler compiled a 109-13 record in his four years. He selected the Seminoles over Clemson and Minnesota.
“Antwaun is an outstanding young man who has a great deal of ability,” said Florida State head coach Steve Robinson. “He is a young, developing wing player who has had great success on the high school level on the court and has proven to be a winner off the court as well. I look forward to working with him beginning next season.”
Dixon was also selected as his high school’s winner of the Clone Award, given annually to the Wheeler student who their peers would most like to emulate. He is the first player to sign with Florida State during the spring signing period.
