Dye ready to show Clemson faithful what he can do

Tyshon Dye is ready to show the Clemson faithful and the world what he is capable of.

Dye, the 6-0, 200-pound running back out of Elberton (GA) Elbert County and 2013 Clemson commit, is ready to put his high school career behind him and see what awaits him at Clemson University.

TigerNet spoke with Dye Tuesday afternoon, and he said that he is ready to make the most out of the opportunity given to him by the Tigers.

“It’s exciting to know that I’m about to graduate high school and move on to bigger and better things,” Dye told TigerNet. “Anybody would love to have the opportunity that I have. I know that it’s going to be a great experience once I get up to Clemson.”

Only Dye knows what he is capable of, but he is ready to show the Clemson coaches that he can make an immediate impact on and off the field.

“I can’t wait to get up there and start working hard with my teammates,” Dye said. “I’m looking forward to the great experience at college and making new friends and just growing up. I’m ready to show the world what I’m made of and what I can do on and off the football field. I know that I’m going to have a great chance to come in and help Clemson right away and see the field early in the season.”

While Dye is looking forward to getting acquainted with his new teammates, he is already making plans for the future with fellow 2013 running back Wayne Gallman.

“Wayne [Gallman] and I talk a lot,” he said. “We talk at least a couple of times a week about what it’s going to be like when we get to Clemson. We can’t wait to get up there.”

Dye has been focusing on his strength and speed this spring, hoping to be in playing shape when arrives on campus this summer.

“This spring I’ve just been trying to focus on learning the different schemes they use at Clemson,” he said. “I’ve been trying to work on my technique and getting bigger, faster and stronger. I’ve been doing a lot of bag drills and speed work.”

However, he hasn’t taken too much time to about the Georgia game on August 31st.

“I really haven’t even thought about anything past high school,” he said. “I know that it’s going to be exciting to run down the Hill and rub the rock before that first game against Georgia. I can’t wait.”
