2025 4-Star Shooting Guard To Visit Pitt Basketball Saturday

Derek Dixon Pitt basketball visit with Jeff Capel.

Jeff Capel and his program will be hosting a talented junior this weekend.

College basketball recruiting analyst Houston Wilson is reporting that 2025 4-star shooting guard Derek Dixon will be making an unofficial visit to Pitt on Saturday. Dixon (6’4″, 185-pounds) attends Gonzaga High School in Washington D.C. and is currently ranked by Rivals.com as the No. 90 overall player in the Class of 2025.

Along with Pitt, Dixon holds offers from Xavier, Virginia Tech, Virginia, Villanova, Syracuse, St. Joe’s, Providence, Penn State, Maryland, Kansas State, George Washington, George Mason, Fordham and East Carolina.

This won’t be Dixon’s first visit to Pitt, as back in June of 2022, he also made an unofficial visit to Pittsburgh. In fact, that visit was Dixon’s first college visit. Back on June 15, the day schools were permitted to make contact with juniors, Jeff Capel and Milan Brown were in contact with Dixon.

Pitt has offered ten guards in the class of 2025, headlined by Dixon and local product Meleek Thomas, who is one of the top five players in the country. The Panthers have one high-school commitment currently, with 2024 prospect Brandin Cummings verbally committed to join the program that his brother starred for a season ago.

With any luck, Pitt will have a new HC before the Class of 2025 matriculates! Here’s hoping that the Capel error will run its course and we can go back to a time in the program when bids earned>felons recruited

Error? An error is a mistake. like you. It’s hard to believe that claim to be a Pitt Alumnus and ALL that you do is TROLL the program. The 2023 Coach of the year doesn’t need you and he will continue to be successful without you. Maybe YOU will be gone before 2025.

Pathetic deflection. Capel recruited three athletes that broke the law. Btw Wannstedt who was white and had an actual winning record was forced to resign when his players, who fwiw were black were arrested. Using race when facts don’t fit the narrative is a crutch. Clown
