Friday morning one of the best running backs in the country will announce his commitment to one of three SEC schools.
For Auburn, Arkansas and Tennessee it will mark the end of a recruitment that's gone on for more than a year. For Little Rock (Ark.) Christian head coach Justin Kramer, it was a process that started many years earlier when Michael Dyer was just 10-years old.
"I've known Michael since the fifth grade. To see him come from where he was to where he's at is real exciting," Kramer said.
The state of Arkansas' all-time leading rusher, Dyer is set to announce his decision shortly after 9:30 a.m. CT. First on the agenda will be accepting an invitation to the Under Armour All-American game, which will be played in Orlando on Jan. 2 and shown live on ESPN.
Then comes the big announcement.
"I told him to keep it somewhat civilized. There's a lot of people, if it's not Arkansas, will get pretty bent out of shape so I told him to make sure he doesn't do anything to get people all twisted up," Kramer said.
Dyer has consistently named Auburn his leader since this summer and hasn't said anything to the contrary since an official visit to Tennessee last weekend.
"I think he's ready to get it done and move on," Kramer said.
Rated a five-star and the nation's No. 17 overall prospect and No. 3 running back, Dyer has rushed for 7,566 career yards and 74 touchdowns.
