Ben Tate is having a wonderful season, and will continue to do so. He is also a senior and one of the reasons Michael Dyer chose to come to Auburn. Michael Dyer is a wonderful talent. He has game changing talent on a scale that Auburn Backs are known for. It is the main reason fore the long list of successful NFL backs out of this program. No School does it better than Auburn.

Michael Dyer will arrive on campus next year with a class of new recruits that include some of the best Offensive Line prospects in the nation. He will have a veteran Offensive Line to run behind that has proven to be one of the best in the SEC this year. With Dyer in the backfield Auburn should see no reduction in production from this position next season.

I personally believe this young man has Heisman quality talent. If he works hard and develops to his potential, great things are to come in his life. Coach Heisman would be proud to have one of such potential at his old school. He attempted to instill the very values this young man stands for at Auburn from 1895 to 1899. Now this young man has the chance to come and earn the trophy named after this great coach at one of the schools he actually coached at. If Dyer is able to accomplish this task on the plains he would be the third to do so. 

Gene Chizik and staff continue to build momentum in recruiting the players they need to implement the overall scheme he installed at Auburn upon his arrival. The list of names positions and quality are nothing less than astounding. There has never been an Auburn University recruiting class that had as much potential as this one is shaping up to have.
