The Texas Longhorns made a late call to try to sway four-star defensive end Matt Dimon to consider heading down to Austin to play football. It wasn't enough to convince him, and Dimon signed with the Oklahoma Sooners on Signing Day 2013 on Feb. 6.
Oklahoma picked up the verbal commitment from Dimon in September, but then the Longhorns came knocking in December. Dimon heard them out, but then made sure that everyone knew that he was still 100-percent committed to the Oklahoma Sooners.
While playing for Katy in 2012, he led his school to the Texas Class 5A Division II state championship for the first time since 2008. He even won the defensive MVP award for the championship game, returning an interception for a touchdown.
The Houston Chronicle named him the All-Greater Houston Defensive Player of the Year.
ESPN and Scout.com ranked Matt Dimon as a four-star recruit and Rivals gave him three-stars. ESPN named him the 22nd best strongside defensive end in the nation and the 40th best player from the state of Texas. In his senior season, Dimon recorded 55 tackles, 12 sacks and six forced fumbles.
