MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Alabama 2024 commit Sterling Dixon Jr. is leaving Mobile Christian for his senior season — multiple sources, including Leopards head coach Ronnie Cottrell, confirmed to WKRG Sports Director Simone Eli.

Dixon is the state’s reigning 3A Lineman of the Year — he posted 182 tackles and 18 sacks for the Leopards last season.

Sterling Dixon Sr. tells WKRG that no decision has been made on where his son will play his final high school football season.

“We’ve heard from several programs and we are taking the process slow,” said Dixon Sr. “There is no timetable, we are going to continue to pray as a family and see where the Good Lord leads us.”

Cottrell says Dixon met with his Mobile Christian teammates Monday morning to announce his decision to transfer from the Leopards program.

“Sterling wants to compete and produce at a higher classification and level,” says Dixon Sr. “He knows he only has one more season to do that.”

Dixon is a 4-star edge rusher, according to 247 Sports. He committed to Alabama this past December. The high school football season begins on Friday, August 25th.
