Know your Bulls is a countdown to the kick off. If will look at every single UB football player on the roster. When the players number matches the number of days remaining then it's his turn in the spotlight.

Position: Wide Receiver

From: Suwanee, Georgia

Played against Stony Brook, Ball State, and UConn

Cordero Dixon is quietly one of UB's higher ranked commitments in recent years. Dixon, who played for North Gwinnett high school, was listed among the Top 150 wide receivers in the nation by ESPN.

After red shirting his freshman season Dixon's main job was to fill out UB's depth last year. This year UB is trying to replace two graduating seniors and Dixon, according to the UB Depth chart, is in a tight competition with Devon Hughes for one of those spots.

Dixon is one of the faster receivers on the roster and could make a big difference no matter where he ends up. Even if he lands behind Hughes on the depth chart he should see the field quite a bit when the Bulls go with four or five receivers.

But Dixon's biggest contribution this season may be on special teams. As the Bulls found out last year life without Terrell Jackson can be very difficult. UB struggled with turnovers and poor returns last season after Jackson, who holds several UB special teams records, was lost for the season against Temple.

During this years Blue and white game Dixon took a few punts, but never had any room to return them.
