Chattanooga wing Nat Dixon will visit Penn State this weekend, according to Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports. Dixon's visit, which will occur at the same time as Illinois forward Michael Finke, coincides with Blue-White Weekend.

Dixon averaged 13.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 1.9 assists per game in 2017-18, playing almost 37 minutes per game for the 10-23 Mocs. He shot 39.5 percent from three, which is certainly something Penn State could use without leading three-point shooters Tony Carr and Shep Garner.

The 6-foot-4, 183-pound Dixon started his college career in 2014 as a wide receiver at Boston College. The Panama City, Fl. native decided to leave that program and redshirt in 2015-16 as he converted to basketball, landing in Chattanooga and playing his first college ball in 2016-17.
