Backup forward/center Dixon transferring from Georgia

Another backup big man on the Georgia basketball team is departing.

Rising senior forward/center Tim Dixon is transferring, the school confirmed Thursday night.

Dixon, from Columbus, played in all but one game this past season, averaging 7.8 minutes, 1.3 rebounds and 0.8 rebounds per game.

Reserve center John Cannon also left the team with the intention of transferring before the Southeastern Conference Tournament.

The 6-foot-10, 230-pound Dixon’s departure came to light the day after Georgia announced the signing of frontcourt players Yante Maten and Osahen Iduwe in the late signing period.

Georgia now has another scholarship available to sign another recruit or has room to bring in a transfer. It could also hold the scholarship for the 2015 class.
