Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer getting support from mentors as he looks for landing spot (report)

By Brandon Marcello | bmarcello@al.com

Former Auburn running back Michael Dyer is still searching for a home, and at least one of his mentors believes another school should give him a chance after early exits at Auburn and Arkansas State.

Time, however, is running out on Dyer, who is immediately eligible to compete as a junior.

Dyer, who left the Auburn program in 2011 after failing a drug test, tells USA Today in a recent interview that he'd like to stay home at Arkansas, adding that if another schools offers a scholarship, he may instead try to walk on with the Razorbacks instead.

"If Arkansas said I could walk on, I'd go walk on at Arkansas," he tells USA Today.

Arkansas is not completely against the idea, according to the report, though some schools have backed off the idea of welcoming Dyer on their campus. He most recently received interest from Marshall, Troy and Western Kentucky, but wants to play football on a higher level -- he was named the MVP in Auburn's 22-19 victory against Oregon in the 2011 BCS National Championship.
