Follow-up with Nixon

I spent the last four days in Dallas at a friend's wedding, with most of Monday spent in transit trying to get home while working on a tip about James Nixon not qualifying for UConn. Not an easy thing to do when you don't have a lap top and are stuck waiting out weather delays at Dallas/Fort Worth airport thanks to the Old Testament-style rain/hail/thunder storms that have been rolling through Texas over the last few weeks. Here's the story, in case you missed it.

Most of the facts are the same, aside from one. In short, Nixon plans to attend a community college this fall to begin accumulating college credit and to work on his test scores. He plans to play football in college -- track is not his primary goal -- though UConn will not be part of his future. Several schools, including Rutgers, have been in contact with Nixon already, and once he gets a qualifying score on the SAT or ACT, he'll be at a Division I-A program. Check the story in Wednesday's Register for all the details.
