UW adds CB transfer Travell Dixon

Cornerback Travell Dixon, who left Alabama for personal reasons in August, will join Washington’s football program, HuskyNation confirmed Friday.

The 6-foot-1, 191-pound Miami native originally enrolled at Alabama in January after transferring from Eastern Arizona College, where he was an NJCAA first-team All-American. He is expected to enroll at Washington on Monday. Fall quarter classes begin Sept. 24.

Dixon, who picked off four passes as a sophomore at Eastern Arizona, will have to sit out the 2012 season due to NCAA transfer rules but will provide a veteran presence in Washington’s secondary in 2013.
