Dixie Wooten III Commits to Houston Over A&M, Others


Three-star offensive lineman and class of 2016 recruit Dixie Wooten III, out of Houston’s Lamar High School, has committed to join the University of Houston Cougars. The news was broken on Wooten’s page on 247 Sports and again very excitedly on the blog “Cardiac Coogs.”

Even more amazing is that Wooten, who stands 6’3″ and weighs in at 317 pounds, chose Houston over better contending programs like Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Baylor, Miami, Oklahoma State and others. On looks alone, it seems as though he just wanted to stay close to home.

Houston was 8-5 (5-3 AAC) last season and rallied to defeat Pittsburgh 35-34 in the Armed Forces Bowl, but struggled following head coach Kevin Sumlin’s (now of Texas A&M) departure and went 21-17 (14-10 C-USA & AAC) in three-plus seasons under Tony Levine, who was fired at regular season’s end and replaced on an interim basis by defensive coordinator Dave Gibbs, who coached the team in last year’s bowl game.

The university has since hired former Ohio State offensive coordinator Tom Herman as head coach, and hopefully he can turn the program around enough that Wooten can play on multiple winning squads during his college days.

Houston opens the 2015 campaign at home against Tennessee Tech on September 5.
