Tigers, Dawgs in the running

One of the top running backs in Georgia's class of 2013, who could also play linebacker at the next level, has been to Clemson twice this fall.

RB Tyshon Dye Profile

Earlier in the summer, Elbert County [Elberton] junior running back Tyshon Dye visited Clemson for the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.

He was back in Tigertown for the North Carolina and Florida State games.

"I thought they were good," he told CUTigers.com of his game day visits. "The fans, they have good fans. I thought that helped a lot."

While in town for the games he spoke one-on-one with offensive coordinator Chad Morris and running backs coach Tony Elliott.

"I remember talking to the offensive coordinator. He was talking about how they've got it setup in the next couple of years and how I would fit in perfect for their offense," Dye said.

The 6-foot-1, 200-pound running back is impressed with what he's seen from Morris' offense.

"It's a good offense. I like the way they move the ball with their offense," he said.

Dye has also visited Georgia and Alabama this fall. He was in Athens for the Auburn game and Tuscaloosa for the LSU game.

So far, Clemson and Georgia are his only offers.

"I like what they both do on offense. They've both got great offenses," Dye said.

He believes Georgia Tech could be next to offer.

When might a decision be made?

"I want to see if I can make it to the Under Armour game. I was going to try to make my decision then," Dye said.
