USC TE Bryce Dixon No Longer With Team

Talented sophomore tight end Bryce Dixon of USC is no longer enrolled with the school, as the athletic department put out a release announcing his departure on Thursday. Dixon was absent from any spring activities due to previous student misconduct, which was never disclosed.

He was said to have a bright future ahead of him and was expected to be the starter at tight end heading into next year. Dixon is coming off a freshman season in which he recorded 14 passes (four of which went for touchdowns) for 198 receiving yards.

More from Gary Paskwietz of ESPN.com:

With this news, the Trojans will now have to make new plans to man the position. Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick, a junior who sat out last year due to academics, took part in spring drills but looked rusty, and it was walk-on Connor Spears who was working with the first unit by the end of spring.
Fall camp will welcome a trio of bodies to add to the rotation with incoming freshman Tyler Petite, walk-on Caleb Wilson (son of USC defensive line coach Chris Wilson) and Oklahoma transfer Taylor McNamara.

USC is coming off a season in which they went 9-4 and beat Nebraska in the Holiday Bowl. The Trojans will open with Arkansas State at home on September 5.
