Per a report from Record-Courier, Kent State’s Antwan Dixon will miss his sophomore season due to a "blood disorder" that he had last year. The report says that this blood disorder dates back into the end of last year and Dixon did not play in the regular season finale against Akron.

Dixon will not attend classes in the Fall semester and should be back for the Winter.

Kent State dropped their last five games of the 2015 season, finishing at 3-9 overall (2-6 Mid-American Conference). As a true freshman, Dixon led the Flashes with 355 receiving yards, second with 26 receptions, and had one touchdown. On the ground, he had 162 yards on 11 carries with two scores.

When Dixon committed to Kent State back in high school, he told us that he wanted to break Dri Archer’s records. Archer is tied for longest kickoff return of 100 yards, third in school history with 4,980 all-purpose yards, and was a top-10 player in terms of being a threat rushing, receiving and scoring.
