Why be excited: The combination of size and speed made Dye one of the most sought-after running backs in the Southeast. Coaches expect that by mid-career he'll be playing at 220 pounds, without diminishing his speed. In addition to his ability as a ball-carrier, he's also shown himself to be a capable pass-catcher. He averaged nearly 10 yards per carry as a high school sophomore, and returned three kicks for touchdowns.
You may not know: His brother, Marquice, has accompanied Tyshon to Clemson on several occasions in the past year and may end up as a 2014 Tiger recruiting target as a cornerback.
How he fits into the depth chart: He'll have a chance to battle D.J. Howard, Zac Brooks and fellow freshman Wayne Gallman for the Tigers' No. 2 spot behind rising senior Rod McDowell.
