    Eric Dixon, the 2019 power forward from Abington (PA) High School, told ZAGSBLOG on Wednesday that he plans on making his college decision later this month.

    “I don’t have a concrete date set, but it will probably be the week before April 20,” said Dixon.

    Dixon also mentioned that he is focusing on Villanova, Virginia, Seton Hall, and Louisville in his recruitment.

    “I just got down to these four over the past few days,” said Dixon. “I cut a few down from the previous number I was at. Now, I’m using this time to look at each program in depth.”

    He broke down each school for ZAGSBLOG:

    Louisville: “They’re in the ACC. It’s a big opportunity. Coach [Chris] Mack and his staff just joined from Xavier which is why they’re in there. I’m familiar with their staff and what they’re all about. I can come in and help them and be a big part of them making the tournament.”

    Seton Hall: “They have a very hard-working culture. They’re a bunch of hard-working, truthful, honest guys, that are working together all the time.”

    Virginia: “They have a great culture. They emphasize defense first which is big for me. There’s a lot of motivation in terms of defense.”

    Villanova: “I like their play style and they can help me with the aspects of my game that I’m not good at. They can make my strengths stronger, and obviously, they win a lot.”

    Dixon also broke down what his decision will come down to, in terms of deciding factors.

    “I’m trying to find that balance between playing time and winning,” said Dixon. “I need to find a school that will help me improve what I’m not good at, somewhere that can help me improve my strengths and weaknesses.”

    According to 247Sports, Dixon is ranked as the No. 114 overall player in the Class of 2019 and the No. 3 player from the state of Pennsylvania.
