Dyer set an Arkansas state record with 7,566 career rushing yards playing with Little Rock Christian. Rivals.com ranks the 5-foot-8, 200-pound back as the 17th overall prospect in the country and the third best running back. Rivals.com and Scout.com each rate him as a five-star recruit, which is the highest ranking given by each scouting service.
Dyer told AuburnSports.com that offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn, an Arkansas native, played a pivotal role during his recruitment.
With Dyer’s commitment, Auburn now has 20 players who have pledged to play for the Tigers next season. Dyer is the first tailback to commit.
