Even though Greenwood junior wide receiver Xavier Dye verbally committed to Clemson last year, several D-I schools are still making a push for his services. "I am hearing from Georgia a little bit now," Dye told CUTigers.com in a recent interview. "I am also hearing from North Carolina, and South Carolina is still after me."
Is Dye still firm with his commitment to the Tigers, "Yes, I'm still firm," he responded. "I'm still very firm."
The 6-5, 180 pound prospect has been focused on the hardwood in recent weeks.
"I am doing pretty well," Dye said of his junior playing for the Greenwood basketball team. "We lost a tough one Friday against Easley. They are ranked like No. 5 in the state. I am averaging 8.5 points per game. I am also averaging about seven rebounds and two blocks."
The talented receiver also told CUTigers.com that he's been keeping in regular contact with another Clemson commitment – 5-star QB Willy Korn. "We talk every now and then. We talk about the other sports we play mainly. We talk about my basketball and his baseball," he said.
The Clemson coaching staff is staying in touch with the Palmetto standout. "Yeah they are still good. They make sure I am staying firm. They are telling me to make sure I keep my grades up. Plus I came up for the Duke [basketball] game earlier in January," he said.
The Tiger commitment added that he plans to camp at Clemson as many as two times this year. "I will definitely be at the Nike camp at Clemson. I will also probably go to the summer camp at Clemson," Dye said.
