Michael Dyer won't play for Arkansas State this season. But for Red Wolves fans, that's actually the worst of it. He says he'll suit up for ASU next year instead of transferring to a Division II school or declaring for the NFL Draft, as had been rumored.
Dyer will set out, he will work out with the team, said he has never talked to Pittsburg State. Will play next season at Arkansas State— AStateNation (@AStateNation) July 20, 2012
That's at least how it stands for the time being. If the plan goes through, his next game will be in 2013 against Auburn, from whence he just transferred.
How's his coach feel about this?
Malzahn: "I’m tickled to death. Our team is tickled to death. We’ll have one of the top RBs in entire country … eligible to play next year."— Chris Bahn (@cbahn) July 20, 2012
A sophomore, Dyer led Auburn in rushing yards and total yardage -- his 1,242 from scrimmage accounted for even more than Barrett Trotter's passing yardage on the year. You could say he's quite valuable to Gus Malzahn, the coach he followed to Jonesboro.
