Despite a judge ruling that Bryce Dixon would be allowed to re-enroll at USC, the University announced the former four star recruit will not be reinstated as a student athlete on the Trojan football team.

Dixon played in 12 games last season as a freshman for the Trojans. However, he was dismissed from the team and ultimately expelled from USC in the aftermath of a sexual misconduct case.

A judge recently ruled in Dixon's favor after he appealed the expulsion in court. Several reporters believed that it was only a matter of time before Dixon would be back on the Trojans.

However, the USC put out a statement late Thursday night, saying that Dixon would not be reinstated to the university as a student athlete.

USC's tight end position is still up for grabs with returners Jalen Cope-Fitzpatrick (still not academically eligible), Connor Spears and Cyrus Hobby competing against transfer Taylor McNamara and freshmen Tyler Petite and Caleb Wilson for the starting job.
