Morgantown, West Virginia – Lyn-J Dixon, who played for the Clemson Tigers for the past four seasons, transferred to play for West Virginia during the offseason and was expected to take on a big role for the Mountaineers this season.
However, that will not happen. Dixon left the program after facing disciplinary actions for violating team rules.
Today, Dixon committed to play for the Tennessee Volunteers.

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).
Last 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: “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.”
