The website AuburnUndercover.com and The Associated Press are reporting this morning that star tailback Mike Dyer has been granted a release from this scholarship with the Tigers.
Dyer was the MVP of the BCS Championship Game last season and he is the first Auburn back to break the 1,000-yard rushing barrier in each of his first two seasons. (First, as in Bo Jackson didn’t even do that.)
The Arkansas native rushed for 1,242 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011. His 103.5 yards-per-game average was second only to Trent Richardson in the SEC. That figure was good for 11th place on the SEC’s total offense list.
It’s likely just a matter of hours before Dyer touches down at Arkansas State.
