Former Auburn RB Michael Dyer accepts scholarship from Louisville

Auburn running back Michael Dyer will be at the center of the No. 17 Tigers' offensive attack tonight as they host No. 12-ranked South Carolina.

Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer will enroll and be eligible to play this fall for Louisville.

USA Today's George Schroeder broke the story that Fitz Hill, the president of Arkansas Baptist College who has served as Dyer's mentor, said Dyer has accepted a scholarship offer and will enroll and report next week.

As a true freshman in 2010, Dyer broke Bo Jackson's Auburn record with 1,093 yards on 182 carries.

As a sophomore in 2011, Dyer ran for 1,242 yards on 242 carries. He has not had carried the football since November 26, 2011 in a 42-14 Auburn loss to Alabama at Jordan-Hare stadium.

Dyer says he considered the NFL supplemental draft but wanted to clear his name and take the next step when more ready.

Dyer, who will be a junior, is immediately eligible.
