Washington Huskies officially add transfer Travell Dixon

Transfer Travell Dixon was officially added to the roster and on the sideline at practice Tuesday wearing No. 31. Dixon played the last two seasons at Eastern Arizona Junior College, where he was considered one of the top junior college cornerbacks in the country. He originally enrolled at Alabama in January, but left there in August because of personal reasons.

He enrolled at Washington prior to the academic quarter and will be eligible in 2013 as a junior.

At 6 foot 1 and 190 pounds, Dixon is now the largest cornerback on the Washington roster. He is a prime candidate to replace senior cornerback Desmond Trufant next season.

Dixon was named a first-team NJCAA All-America as a sophomore in 2011, when he recorded 39 tackles and four interceptions. He also earned ACCAC co-defensive player of the year.

As a freshman in 2010, he was a first-team all-region and all-league selection for Eastern Arizona.

Dixon is from Miami.
