Did he qualify out of high school?

Smart money says no. Especially considering his recruiting is being framed as "fully qualified with three years of eligibility."

Smart money says yes, for the reason you stated. He has to get his AD before being eligible, if he didn’t qualify.

Ah, I didn't realize that. I just figured he would use this past summer to finish his HS qualifications and then begin progress for his AD in the fall, enabling him to go elsewhere summer 2019. Thanks for the correction.

"Goodwin said some Ivy League schools also had shown interest in Dixon. “They're not only getting a great player, but a better person than player,” said Goodwin." ... from August Pantagraph

When I see Ivy i think academically eligible

Might see him in the MVC afterall

Demontay Dixon

He’s a former Illinois State signee.

But the 6-9 forward never made it to campus for the 2018 season. He sat out and enrolled at Walters State (Tennessee), a junior college where he averaged 10 points and 5.5 rebounds for a 23-win team this past winter.

Dixon was offered by UE in October and visited campus in late March. He’s a qualifier with three years of eligibility left. Also competing for his services are Wichita State and Middle Tennessee State. Those two and the Aces offered within a 48-hour window last fall.

He’s from Franklin, Tennessee, and was also unranked out of high school.

Good get for my Aces. Coach Mc has certainly upgraded the roster.

I'm glad he's in the MVC. It'll be fun to see, "what could have been." Either good or bad.

Interesting to see how he matches up against Rey and Keith over the next three seasons.

So in order to stay consistent, does this mean that Elgin will soon rule that Dixon has to sit this entire year, or (since Barry isn't around to question the logic anymore) does he just have to sit in the two games he plays us?

Can someone ask Gregggggg what he thinks is fair?

UE is just waiting on paperwork to clear for DD. Still fully expect him to be on team.

Depends on paperwork from what I've read on PurpleAcesFans.

From what I can tell it doesn't appear (through photos on Twitter) that Dixon has been at the summer practices. Could just be selective shots though like how Hank Beard with with our team for like 2-3 weeks before he showed up in any photo.

He hasn't been. They are still waiting on some paperwork to clear before he can be enrolled I think.

I hear he's on campus but have not heard official eligibility yet.
