Clemson Transfer Running Back Could Be Headed to West Virginia

Morgantown, West Virginia – Former four star running back out of Butler, Georgia, Lyn-J Dixon, could make Morgantown, West Virginia his new home very soon.

Dixon, an accomplished back who has played for the Clemson Tigers for the past four seasons, would be the absolutely perfect replacement for Leddie Brown in the Mountaineers’ backfield next season.

During his career at Clemson, Dixon has rushed 218 times for 1,420 yards and 13 touchdowns and ranked 2nd all-time in Clemson history in yards per carry (6.6 yards per rush) prior to the start of this season.

This season, Dixon was in the coaches’ doghouse and has only rushed 10 times for 48 yards.  Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said the following of Dixon this season: “He just needs to grow up. It’s just that simple. He needs to be a team player.  He’s a very good player, obviously. He’s very talented. But we just need him to stay out of the doghouse. That’s about it.”

Dixon was in Morgantown this past weekend to take in the West Virginia versus Texas Longhorns game and has made subtle hints on social media that he’s interested in playing for the Mountaineers.

With Leddie Brown leaving and a young group of backs returning, Dixon could potentially be West Virginia’s featured back for the next two seasons if he commits to the team.
