Dyron Dye is Rivals 250 member from Seminole (Fla.) Sanford High School. Dye, 6-5 and 225 pounds, is a terrific defensive end prospect that recorded 65 tackles, 13.5 sacks, 10 tackles for a loss, eight batted down passes, blocked two punts, and blocked three field goals.
"I could have even been better last year," Dye said. "I know now that I took some plays off. I am going all out this season. I saw my film and my coaches got on me. It's in the past. I am going to make up for it this season and I have used that as a motivator this off-season.
"I have seen the improvement this spring. I have improved in everything and I know there is always room for improvement. I am getting off (the line of scrimmage) quicker and much stronger than last year."

According to Dye he has three dozen or so offers at this time. Many of those scholarship offers have come from schools like Florida State, Florida, Miami, USC, Clemson, LSU and Tennessee.
"It's like a dream. I know many don't have this opportunity and I know it's a big decision that will set me up for the rest of my life."
Dye is blessed to have two teammates that are super prospects as well in Ray Ray Armstrong and Andre DeBose. There is a lot of discussion that this Sanford trio could end up at the same school.
"We want to go to school together and I hope it works out that way. But you never know."
Speaking of schools and school choices Dye says he's completely open at this time.
"I know anywhere you go you have to compete. Education will be big. I know anything can happen and I just thank God. He'll look over me and I will pick a school where my heart is. Right now I am open to everyone."
Dye has seen Miami, South Florida, UCF, Florida, and FSU. He plans on taking visits this summer but just doesn't know what schools he will see just yet.
