  Tennessee football went looking for a running back who fit its needs at the start of preseason practices. It quickly found one in Lyn-J Dixon, who transferred to UT and added depth to a thin position. "He is in a race to understand and learn what we are doing as fast as he possibly can," Vols coach Josh Heupel said Tuesday following UT's first preseason scrimmage. Dixon is immediately eligible for Tennessee. He visited Knoxville after the Vols announced running back Len'Neth Whitehead had suffered a season-ending injury. Dixon rushed for 1,420 yards and 13 touchdowns over four seasons at Clemson. Dixon graduated from Clemson in December and this is his second transfer. He transferred to West Virginia in November. He entered the transfer portal again in June. - Knoxville News Sentinel

  Former Clemson running back Lyn-J Dixon has a new home for the 2022 season. Dixon has committed to Tennessee, he announced Wednesday morning on Instagram. Dixon, the No. 7 running back in the class of 2018, was verbally committed to the Volunteers in high school before flipping to Clemson. Dixon, who will have two years of eligibility at Tennessee, had previously committed to West Virginia for the 2022 season last November but re-entered the transfer portal in June before playing a game with the Mountaineers.

The former four-star recruit, rushed for 1,420 yards and 13 touchdowns across four seasons and 41 career games for Clemson. He had 547 yards and five touchdowns in 2018 and a career-high 635 yards and six touchdowns in 2019. Effective as a change-of-pace back behind now-NFLer Travis Etienne, Dixon was a prime candidate for the Tigers' starting running back position last season but ultimately split carries with Kobe Pace and Will Shipley. Dixon entered the transfer portal in September after three games with Clemson, later saying there were no hard feelings between him and coach Dabo Swinney, running backs coach CJ Spiller or anyone else at Clemson. - The State

  Former Clemson running back Lyn-J Dixon is once again looking for a new home, per a Monday report. Dixon, who transferred from Clemson to West Virginia last fall, has entered the transfer portal ahead of the Mountaineers' 2022 season, as first reported by Matt Zenitz of On3 Sports. Dixon, a former four-star recruit, rushed for 1,420 yards and 13 touchdowns across four seasons and 41 career games for the Tigers. Effective as a change-of-pace back behind now-NFLer Travis Etienne, Dixon was a prime candidate for Clemson's starting running back position last season but ultimately split carries with Kobe Pace and Will Shipley. Dixon entered the transfer portal in September 2021 after three games with Clemson, later saying there were no hard feelings between him and coach Dabo Swinney, running backs coach CJ Spiller or anyone else at Clemson. - The State

  About 15 minutes into his inaugural Zoom media availability, first-year Clemson running backs coach C.J. Spiller was interrupted by a voice off camera. Then Dabo Swinney appeared in frame. "He ain't ready! He ain't ready!" Swinney said, beaming. Spiller, of course would argue the opposite. He's not merely ready for his first full season as a coach - he's prepared. One of Spiller's most important tasks will be deciding on a pecking order for his position group. Many expect senior Lyn-J Dixon to be the presumptive starter in 2021, but Spiller said March 24 that the depth chart has yet to be established. "It's been a very healthy competition," Spiller said. Dixon's production dipped last season - he averaged 4.5 yards per carry, below his career average of 6.6 yards - but in recent weeks he's earned high praise from Swinney and offensive coordinator Tony Elliott, who previously coached the running backs before moving to tight ends this spring. "I really like what I've seen out of Lyn-J," Swinney said. "He's got a fire under his rear, and I love it. You know, there's a difference between running to a fire and running to get out of one. He's highly motivated." - Charleston Post Courier

  Running back Lyn-J Dixon was Travis Etienne's unquestioned backup last season, finishing the 2019 campaign averaging 6.1 yards per carry. Dixon has been slower to produce this season, with offensive coordinator Tony Elliott noting often the battle for Etienne's primary backup remained open. The junior might have solidified his spot Saturday. After scoring his first touchdown of the season last weekend in the 52-17 win over Pittsburgh, Dixon found the end zone again Saturday on a 19-yard run. He rushed for 37 yards on three carries in the win. - Charleston Post Courier

  Clemson offensive coordinator and running backs coach Tony Elliott was meeting with junior tailback Lyn-J Dixon in mid-January when the phone rang. They were speaking about expectations for Dixon in 2020. On the other end of Elliott's buzzing phone was Tigers star running back Travis Etienne, ready to deliver news to his position coach about his future. Etienne was given a late first or early second round draft grade. He had been contemplating whether to enter the 2020 NFL Draft or return for his senior season. He called Elliott and informed him that he was coming back to Clemson for one final year. "It was kind of awkward because I was talking to Lyn-J. And I didn't know what Travis was going to do," Elliott said. "(Travis) called me and that's when he told me right there. I let Lyn-J know and said, 'You've just got to make a decision.'"

The decision Dixon had to make was whether to return to Clemson to again serve as Etienne's backup, or to transfer in search of a new home. Dixon was naturally a bit disappointed in Etienne's choice, according to Elliott. The Georgia native averaged 7.1 yards per carry in his first two seasons for the Tigers, good for second in school history behind only Etienne, and he proved capable of starting at a Power 5 program. With Etienne returning, Dixon won't get the chance to start at Clemson this year. "It was nothing personal to Travis. They've got a great relationship. But he was kind of hopeful that Travis was going to move on so that he could naturally step into that (role)," Elliott said. - The State
