The Trojans bolstered their tight end corps Wednesday by signing Bryce Dixon of Ventura St. Bonaventure High to a national letter of intent.
The 6-foot-4, 240-pound Dixon joins senior Randall Telfer and junior Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick as scholarship tight ends.
"I saw him play basketball and he had four dunks in one game," Sarkisian told the school's website.
"He'll be a great fit our system that really features the tight end."
Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who played tight end at Washington under Sarkisan, won the John Mackey Award as the nation's top tight end in December.
