Michael Dyer returning to BCS? Uncle claims TCU interest

Butch Dill

The former Auburn and Arkansas State running back seems to have his academics back in order, and is trying to find his way back to a major conference program.

Former Auburn and Arkansas State running back Michael Dyer could be headed to a BCS school next year, according to his uncle. Dyer made the Dean's list this semester at Arkansas Baptist, and has a visit lined up at TCU this week.

Dyer's uncle spoke with ESPN's Joe Schad, and said that his nephew would prefer to play for a school in Arkansas, Texas, or Oklahoma, though TCU is the only school that has been mentioned by name as an option. Former Auburn assistant Curtis Luper is on staff with the Horned Frogs, and he was part of the staff that originally recruited Dyer to Auburn.

Dyer's uncle also mentioned to Schad that the former five-star recruit would be open to returning to Auburn, but considering he's been kicked off Gus Malzahn teams twice already, it doesn't really seem like a great fit.
