Dixon requested his release from Quinnipiac after the school fired head coach Tom Moore in March. The school hired Baker Dunleavy as its new head coach weeks after.
Dixon told CBS’ Jon Rothstein that he received offers from the Johnnies, Penn State, UMass and San Diego.
He will sit out next season per the NCAA’s transfer rules.
