When the Class of 2022 prospect rankings are released later this month, Council Bluffs Lincoln guard Josh Dix won’t be too far from the top.
A 6-foot-4 guard with a beautiful shot and some serious range, Dix has both the size and ability to spread the floor that college coaches will be seeking out plenty over the next couple years.
“I’m best at shooting and creating my own shot, and also defending I think is a strong suit. I just need to keep getting stronger and improve my speed and become a better finisher around the hoop,” Dix said.
As a freshman with the Lynx last winter, Dix had one of the better seasons than anyone in the Class of 2022. He averaged 10.2 points per game and made a team-best 41 3s at a 52% clip. He swiped 1.5 steals per game for good measure.
“Summer coming into freshman year I didn’t really expect to play much varsity, but as the summer went on I started improving in a lot of different areas and I just found a way to get a lot of minutes and impact the game,” Dix said.
Next winter, Dix and the Lynx expect to improve upon their 14-9 record from a season ago.
“We had a really good summer compared to last year, and we’ve improved a lot from last summer to this summer, and I think we have a chance to be really good this season,” Dix said.
In the meantime, he’ll be spending his July playing with the Iowa Barnstormers’ top 15u squad. They’ll be competing in the adidas Gauntlet Finale in California July 18-21.
“We did really well in the adidas Gauntlet in Texas and Indianapolis this spring. My role for the team is to score and defend at a high level,” said Dix. “We’re going to try and win the adidas Gauntlet this summer.”
Recruitment: “I’ve been to South Dakota State for a workout and Nebraska-Omaha for elite camp, but I think I could start to get a little more recruitment .”
