Clemson Transfer Tyshon Dye: Miami ‘Definitely’ The Leader

Clemson Transfer Tyshon Dye reportedly had a good time on his Miami visit this past weekend, and lists the Hurricanes as the leader for where he’ll land.


There appears to be a leader for former Clemson Tigers running back Tyshon Dye. Dye, who will be eligible to play immediately following graduation from Clemson in May, enjoyed his visit with the Miami Hurricanes, according to Ryan Bartow of 247Sports.

News of Dye’s visit was reported last week by Bartow. At the time he stated that Miami is “coming at me the hardest.”

The trip to South Florida over the weekend helped to solidify his thoughts of Miami as a potential landing spot.

“Pretty nice,” Dye said in regards to his time with Miami.

“Coach Richt said they definitely need me. He told me I’m the guy and I’m the only running back they are looking at as for now.”

He said that Miami is his leader as of now, but does plan to try to still visit two other programs – Georgia Southern and SMU.

Coming out of high school, Dye was a highly-touted four-star recruit. He was the No. 209 overall player and No. 27 running back per Scout, however he never quite lived up to the lofty rankings. During his time at Clemson, Dye rushed for 351 yards and five touchdowns on 76 attempts after redshirting his freshman season in which he suffered a back injury.
