USC Wednesday night offered DB Keisean Nixon of Arizona Western JC. Nixon said he received a phone call from USC secondary coach and defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson with the offer.
“I think it’s big for me,” Nixon said. “It was one of the offers I wanted and hopefully I’ll set up a visit soon. I know about T-Rob’s background but I don’t really know too much, I’m from the West Coast, so I don’t really know a lot about South Carolina. I know the corner, Jamarcus (King) that goes there and he’s talked to me a lot.”
Nixon also is considering offers from Missouri, Oregon and and Mississippi State at this point and he’s set an official visit to Mizzou for November 25th. He feels USC “most likely” will get an official visit as well and he’s unsure about the others.
“I’m looking for early playing time and the loyalty of the coaches,” Nixon said of what he’s looking for in his eventual choice.
Nixon signed with Oregon State out of high school in Compton, CA but did not qualify. He’s in his second season at Arizona Western and will have three years to play to at the next level. He plans to announce his choice December 17th and sign that day as a mid-year enrollee.
This season Nixon has 5 interceptions with 4 passes broken up and 4 blocks. He also has 36 tackles and has averaged 26 yards per kickoff return and 9 yards per punt return.
