RB Tyshon Dye of Elberton, GA named Clemson, USC, Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee as his top five with Clemson and Auburn out front. Of the two, he did not name a favorite.
All have offered along with Ole Miss, North Carolina and Southern Cal.
The Tigers were the first to offer Dye and that means something to him. "That kind of stands out to me," he said. "I like their wide receiver (Sammy Watkins) too."
As for Auburn, the new pro-style offense they are expected to implement this season is attractive to Dye. "They also will have a good offensive line returning," he added.

The Gamecocks are another school of interest to Dye and he feels early playing time is a possibility. "I don't think their running back (Marcus Lattimore) is going to be there too much longer so I could play sooner than later," Dye said. "I haven't visited yet but I plan on going this summer to see if I like it."
He is attending camp at Tennessee Wednesday and plans trips to Clemson, USC and Auburn as well.
