The four-star prospect from Elbert County High School [Elberton, Ga.] had solid experience in Clemson.

"It was good. It was fun. I enjoyed it," he told CUTigers on Sunday afternoon.

Ranked by Scout.com as the No. 20 running back in the class of 2013, Dye was impressed with what he saw from the Tigers' offense.

"I went into the locker room with the coaches and they told me how many rushing yards the team had in that first half. I thought it was very impressive," Dye said.

He looks forward to the opportunity to compete for a spot in the Clemson backfield next season.

"I'm a power guy. I'm a more aggressive runner. I can see myself fitting in a lot of different ways. I can run the ball, I can catch it, just about anything, wherever they need me, as long as I can help the team," Dye said.

While in town on Saturday, he caught up with running backs coach Tony Elliott. Dye will have a chance to see Elliott and the rest of the Clemson coaching staff again in just a few days. He'll be back in Clemson for the South Carolina game.

The 6-foot, 200-pound running back, who rushed for over 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns as a junior, saw his senior season cut short because of an ankle injury.

"I sprained it," Dye said. "I missed two games in the regular season."
