Sabino High School graduate Drew Dixon, who went on to play receiver at Arizona before concluding his collegiate career at Division II Limestone at Gaffney, S.C., has signed an undrafted free agent deal with the Green Bay Packers.

Dixon’s former teammate at Arizona, offensive tackle Jordan Morgan of Marana High School, was selected by the Packers in the first round of last week’s NFL draft.

Dixon has been working out at Jet Sports Training with former NFL receivers Jeff Cotton and Stanley Berryhill III with Sam Medina, one of the Jet Sports Training coaches.

Dixon, who concluded his redshirt senior season with Limestone last fall, graduated from Sabino in 2017.

He came to Arizona as a receiver for Rich Rodriguez although he passed for more than 1,000 yards as a quarterback his senior season for the Sabercats.

As a senior, he led Sabino to the 3A state championship game under former coach Jay Campos.

He appeared in all 12 games with four starts in 2019 at Arizona for Kevin Sumlin and finished the season with 14 catches for 143 yards and a pair of touchdowns.

After COVID-19 in 2020 forced Dixon to opt out early that season, he decided to transfer and was out of football in 2021 before joining Limestone in 2022.

He had 28 catches for 592 yards and five touchdowns in 2022 and 44 receptions for 541 yards and four touchdowns last season.

Former NFL receiver Jerricho Cotchery was his head coach at Limestone last season.

The dates for the Packers’ rookie minicamp have yet to be officially announced.

NFL teams have a timeframe of May 3-6 or May 10-13 to officially hold their rookie sessions. 

Every member of the Packers’ rookie class, including their draft picks such as Morgan, will be expected to attend the minicamp.
