Stats don't lie, that's why 6-foot-5, 230 pound, Dyron Dye out of Seminole High School is receiving early attention from some big-name teams. Right now Dye is holding half-a-dozen offers, a number that could double by the spring evaluation period.

"I have offers from Kentucky, Cincinnati, FIU, UCF and South Carolina."

Other schools showing him interest are UF, LSU, USF and Purdue. Dye has been starting full-time since his sophomore year and even got a few starts as a freshman.

"I'm quick off the ball, my coaches say I have a great first step" Adding, "I don't know who I'd compare myself to, but I watch the (New York) Giants linemen and try to learn from them."

In the offseason Dye is working on his feet, but mainly he wants to add weight.

"If I can add about 5 pounds by the start of my senior year, I'll be where I need to be. I want to be about 240 by the time I graduate."

This summer Dye plans on going to the Down & Dirty camp along with working out with his team.

"I don't think I'll be going to any college camps. My coach doesn't really like that. Instead we rented a field for the weekend in Cocoa and our whole team is going to practice there for the weekend."

Although he's got several offers there are a few out there that Dyron would like to have. One of them is Florida State, the other is South Florida.

"I like USF, I thought they were going to offer. I don't know what happen, I've been waiting to see if they're going to offer for a long time."

"I met coach Simmonds, he gave me a questionnaire and me and my dad filled it out. Since then I've been waiting for a response. Same thing happen with Florida State, they contacted me a while back and I haven't heard anything else since then."

Dyron Dye says there are two major factors in his decision, one will be the coaching staff and the other is academics. Dye currently has a 2.5 core GPA and hopes to major in Business after he graduates high school.
