CLEMSON, S.C. β€” Former Clemson running back Tyshon Dye has passed away at the age of 25.

I can honestly say Tyshon Dye is one of the sweetest souls I’ve ever been associated with or coached. We’re just all heartbroken tonight, and we’re praying for his family and know that he’s been called home.”

Dye graduated from Clemson with a degree in parks, recreation and tourism management in May 2017. He appeared in 17 games for Clemson across the 2014-16 seasons after redshirting during the 2013 campaign. He recorded 76 career carries for 351 yards with five rushing touchdowns and two career receptions for 11 yards as a member of the Tigers.
