Rutgers releases Dixon from letter of intent

Rutgers coach Greg Schiano on Monday released football recruit Reggie Dixon from a letter of intent.

"Based on the most recent review, we feel it is in the best interest of all parties involved for Rutgers to release Reggie Dixon from his National Letter of Intent," Schiano said in a statement released late in the evening.

The school did not say what prompted the action, but ESPN reported that the Plainfield High School football and track star had been found guilty in a juvenile court case last August.

Dixon signed his national letter of intent on March 31.

Craig Venson, Dixon's father, refused to allow his son to speak to a reporter for the Home News Tribune of East Brunswick.

"All I can tell you is it's in the hands of the Union County prosecutor and the case is under appeal," Venson told the newspaper.

One of the fastest players in the state, Dixon scored 14 touchdowns over the past two season playing at receiver, halfback, defensive back and special teams. He has been timed at 4.35 seconds in the 40-yard dash. His personal-best time of 6.37 in the 55 meters ranks second all-time in New Jersey high school history.
