Buckeyes redshirt junior WR Johnnie Dixon announced on Twitter that he'll return to school for his senior season.
Dixon is the second Buckeyes wideout to announce his return on Thursday, as fellow wide receiver Parris Campbell also announced his return. It's a big boost to the passing game, as the Buckeyes don't have much depth behind the two wideouts. The 5-foot-11, 194-pound wide receiver caught just 18 passes in 2017, but eight of those went for touchdowns. Jan 11 - 9:10 PM

Ohio State redshirt junior WR Johnnie Dixon caught four passes for 81 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 55-24 loss to Iowa.

Dixon (5'11/194) caught a 44-yard touchdown early in the second quarter and came back around for a 22-yarder in the fourth quarter. He's been a sturdy performer in the end zone of late, having notched two touchdown catches in each of the last two contests.

Ohio State redshirt junior WR Johnie Dixon caught three passes for 110 years and two scores in a 56-0 crushing of Rutgers on Saturday.

Dixon (5'11/194) certainly made the most of his touches; assuming you consider a 66.7 touchdown-to-touch ratio "good." Both touchdown catches came in the second quarter, a 70-yarder from J.T. Barrett, and a few minutes later a 39-yarder from Barrett. Dixon isn't a possession receiver, but his speed opens up the offense for the Buckeyes. He'll be Maryland's problem next week.

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer doesn't believe redshirt junior WR Johnnie Dixon's hamstring injury will be a long-term issue.

Dixon tested the hamstring in pre-game warmups prior to the Army game on Saturday but decided, in the end, that he was unable to give it a go. Dixon (5'11/194) could return Saturday against UNLV.

Ohio State HC Urban Meyer said that redshirt junior WR Johnnie Dixon is "off the charts right now."

"He's moved into the gold category as far as work ethic in practice. He's a very talented guy," Meyer said. He also said that Dixon (5'11/194) "can flat run." Dixon hauled in six passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns during the team's spring game. If he is able to break through during the coming season, it would be the first time he has done so since joining the Buckeyes as a four-star recruit out of high school. Knee injuries have limited him for stretches during his time at OSU -- Dixon has just seven catches for 55 yards in his collegiate career.

Ohio State redshirt junior WR Johnnie Dixon caught six passes for 108 yards and two touchdowns in the team's spring game.

Ohio State tends to be one of the more youth-heavy teams in the country simply due to their near-constant draft turnover, making redshirt junior wideout Dixon something of an old man on campus. The 5-foot-11, 194-pounder was a four-star recruit coming out of the high school ranks, but injury concerns have largely derailed his career. To date, Dixon has caught just seven passes for 55 yards in his time with the Buckeyes. Whether he will be able to maintain his hot spring and turn it into a chance for legit playing time through August camp remains to be seen.
