    Dixon didn't play football until he was half way through high school so it was no shock or surprise that he had difficulty catching on . That's also why he initially took the JUCO route . I'm thinking one day he'll likely look back and wish he would have stuck it out at Alabama and redshirted .

    He could have redshirted or done like Geno. Learn the system as the season progressed and gotten better to contribute.

    JUCOs aren't recruited to redshirt...as a general rule.
