Our Take:

Luke Winstel

Dixon was an excellent safety blanket for his quarterback at Archbishop Wood in Pennsylvania. He found ways to get open and pick up positive yardage when plays broke down. Dixon is a raw tight end and a smooth athlete with good hands.

The three-star made multiple one-hand catches in his senior season and played both ways. 

Morgan Thomas - Pass catching outside WR/TE. With great size. Naturally physical frame without much effort. Easily gets behind defenders and can catch over top. Shows good hands and has made multiple one-handed grabs. Plays on a terrible football team overall. Team finished 2022 with a 1-7 record with an extremely difficult schedule according to MaxPreps.
