Tyshon Dye

Tyshon Dye scored two touchdowns against Wofford last week and was mainly used in short-yardage situations. I want to see more of him this week. Clemson does not have a clear-cut guy behind Wayne Gallman and possibly C.J. Davidson and I think Tyshon Dye could be this guy.

He was finally coming along at the end of fall camp and now he has a chance to solidify his position in the running back pecking order. I want to see more of C.J. Davidson, C.J. Fuller, and Zac Brooks, but Dye looked the most impressive outside of Gallman in my opinion Saturday.

I want to see him run the ball 10 times this Saturday as I would imagine Gallman is taken out early in the game. It will be interesting to see how the backup running back situation looks after this week and I suspect Tyshon Dye has a big day.
