"We got in Saturday morning," Dye said. "We got a chance to get over from the hotel to the stadium and see the walk-thru and stuff like that. Tyson Jackson was my host, so I kept an eye on him a lot. He is a really good player, and he dominated out there on the field. He is a pretty cool guy to be around, so it was fun."
With the Southeastern Conference game between the Tigers and Bulldogs packing Death Valley to capacity, the four-star said that the crowd was as wild as could be.
"We were here for the Mississippi State game, and it was definitely a lot rowdier than that," Dye said. "Everyone was going crazy the whole time. They all know their football, and I always have people coming up to me that recognize me and wish me luck."
Though Dye was only able to catch up with the coaches for a short amount of time before the 2:30 pm kickoff, the Tiger staff found plenty of time the following Sunday to walk him through the roles he would play if he were to choose LSU.
"Coach Mac and Coach Miles are the guys I talked to a lot," Dye said. "I pretty much talked to everyone on the defensive side of the ball as well. All the coaches were just telling me that they want me to come in and be a part of working hard as a team. If I could do that then they could see me getting on the field as a freshman. I really liked the defense’s Express package as well. It keeps a lot of fresh legs in there, and you need that come the fourth quarter."
While Dye remains mum on any leaders, the Tigers join the race for his services alongside a number of Florida schools, from the Hurricanes to Gators.
"I am still looking at the schools around Florida," he said. "But I don't know what I want to do with my final officials. I think I am going to Miami after the season is over. Then I want to go check out West Virginia, because they are playing some good ball and have been recruiting me hard for a while. I think I might also go check out UCLA, but I don't know for sure on that yet."
