Travis Dye is one of the state's top running backs and is coming off a very good junior season.

Dye rushed for 1,878 yards and 15 touchdowns and caught 29 balls for 465 yards and six more scores. He'll be a three year starter for Norco next season and has a nice blend of quickness, vision, balance, toughness and instincts. He runs hard, shows some open field wiggle and is a very productive player. 

On the recruiting front, Dye is still waiting for his first offer to roll in but is hearing from several programs.

"The main ones right now are MichiganTexas A&MNotre Dame and UCLA," Dye said. "I'm not sure who could be close to offering, I'm just being patient and seeing how it all plays out.

"I'm planning to do a lot of visits and camps over the summer. I'll check out Michigan for sure, I want to visit Oregon, A&M and  Boston College. My brother Troy Dye is at Oregon and he likes it there so it would be great to hear more from them but end of the day, I have to do what is best for me."

As for a timeframe for a decision, Dye said it all depends on what offers come in for him.

"I would love to commit early and get it over with," Dye said. "I'm not going to rush it though and it just depends on what options I have on the table. If I'm not sure, I'll take all my visits in the fall and then decide.

"Academics are big for me and I'm looking  for a staff that I can connect with. I want to find a staff that will coach me up and teach me, make me a better player. I'm not worried about location or depth chart. I'll go anywhere and I'm confident enough in my ability that I'll be able to go in and compete for playing time and earn my spot in the rotation."
