Grad transfer Danny Dixon adds size, some scoring to NC State’s frontline

Late Tuesday morning, NC State Basketball landed another addition to its 2019-20 roster. A few short works after adding Lehigh graduate transfer Pat Andree, NC State got a pledge from Danny Dixon.

Dixon, a 6-foot-10 center, played at the University of Missouri-Kansas City during the 2018-19 season; prior to that, he played for two seasons at George Mason (2015-17). He redshirted during the 2017-18 season.

While at UMKC, Dixon appeared in 32 games — making 16 starts (19.7 minutes per game). Over those 32 games, Dixon averaged 7.5 points and 3.6 rebounds per game. (7.4 rebounds per 40 minutes)

During his three-season college career, Dixon has played in 63 games and posted a career effective shooting rate of 46 percent. He did, however, show a bit of stretch from the frontcourt this season, albeit on a small sample: 9-of-17 3-point attempts (52.9 3P%).
