Michael Dixon Jr.,  a former guard at Missouri, visited the Memphis campus on an official visit, according to a report from CBS Sports' Gary Parrish. There have been conflicting reports about whether or not Dixon has committed.

As a junior, Dixon averaged 13.5 points and 3.3 assists per game during the 2011-12 season. He was suspended in October, before the 2012-13 season, after being accused of sexual assault for the second time. The first was by a woman who worked in the athletic department his freshman year. However, Dixon never faced criminal charges after either instance. According to Parrish, the lack of criminal charges is what made Memphis's Josh Pastner comfortable with Dixon's addition; a source also said Dixon has committed will apply for a waiver that will allow him to play right away.

Parrish first tweeted on Tuesday morning that Dixon had officially committed:

A later tweet from ESPN's Jason King said it was not a done deal just yet, but would likely be finalized by the end of Tuesday.
