Arkansas trip intrigues Texas prospect

Junior athlete Kelvontay Dixon made his first visit to Arkansas for the LSU game Nov. 10, and the trip increased his interest in the Hogs.

"The visit was great, the people were good," Dixon said. "They had a nice atmosphere. The way they treated me. The coaching staff was great, too."

Dixon, 6-0, 173, 4.5 seconds in the 40-yard dash, of Carthage, Texas, has scholarship offers from Arkansas, Texas, TCU, Colorado, Oklahoma State, Baylor and others.

Carthage is located 150 miles southeast of Dallas near the Louisiana border. Running backs coach Jeff Traylor, who recruits eastern Texas, has developed a nice relationship with Dixon.
