One of the regions top tailbacks resides in the state of Arkansas.

Michael Dyer of Little Rock Christian, a Scout.com four star prospect and the fourth rated running back in the country, had plans to be in Knoxville for the Vol's Annual Spring Game last Saturday, things didn't work out.

"Dakota (Mosley) went to the game, I wasn't able to," Dyer told InsideTennessee.com. "I still have a lot of interest in the University of Tennessee."

While he was unable to attend this past weekend, he plans on rejoining Mosley on June 1 for a one day camp in Knoxville.

"Right now I'm planning on going up with Dakota for the one day camp," Dyer said. "I'm looking forward to making the trip. I have talked to several of the coaches, but I want to get a chance to meet them face to face."

Dyer is currently holding 20 official offers including ones from Tennessee, Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Texas A&M and Wisconsin to name a few.

Ed Orgeron is recruiting Dyer for the Vols, someone who has impressed Dyer so far.

"Coach Orgeron is really easy to talk to," Dyer said. "I like the direction and goals they have for the program, they have expectations for the Tennessee program."

Who is recruiting one of the nation's top running backs the hardest?

"Right now I would have to say Tennessee and Auburn are recruiting me the hardest," Dyer said. "Both schools are telling me how important I am to their program and recruiting class."

A three-year starter, Dyer broke out as a sophomore, rushing for 2,710 yards and 28 touchdowns on 279 carries. In three less games, he accumulated 1,984 yards and 19 touchdowns on 242 rushes as a junior.
