Rivals250 RB Dye taking his time

A couple weeks ago, Rivals250 running back Tyshon Dye of Elbert County (Ga.) said three teams stood out. On Friday, though, he made it clear he has not yet started to officially narrow things down.
And, he pointed out, he's not in any hurry to do so.
Dye's focus right now is on taking visits.
"I'm going to Auburn tomorrow," he said. "Next week, I'm supposed to be going to Tennessee. It's a good experience to see if I'm interested in those schools."
Dye claims eight offers. He said North Carolina, which he also hopes to visit at some point this spring or summer, pulled the trigger Thursday.
"I recently got USC and South Carolina," he added.
The 6-feet, 200-pound Dye rushed for more than 1,500 yards in 2011, then took part in the Rising Seniors Georgia Junior Bowl, a weeklong event in Atlanta. There, he showcased his skills, particularly his ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.
"That's big for me," Dye said.
Auburn is one school that hasn't yet offered. Dye is optimistic that could soon change.
"Hopefully, I'll know by tomorrow," Dye said. "I've never been there before. This will be my first trip."
Thus far, Dye has visited Alabama, Clemson and Georgia. The Tigers and Bulldogs are among the teams to have offered, he said. He added that Clemson is recruiting him the hardest.
"They're telling me, the way they've got it set up I'm the guy for them in their class," Dye said. "They're telling me I fit perfectly in their offense. Counting games, I've been to Clemson like four or five times."
