We indicated earlier this week that Temple, Texas, running back Lache Seastrunk, the second-rated prospect in the country, is strongly considering the Auburn Tigers. If he made the decision to join the Tigers, it could mean the beginning of a return to rushing prominence at Auburn.

Luckily for the Tigers, Seastrunk isn't the only five-star back considering them; that makes some believe that the team could very well bring in a duo with the potential of former Tigers tandem Carnell "Cadillac" Williams and Ronnie Brown.

Seastrunk, if he commits to Auburn, could be accompanied by Michael Dyer. Oh, and by the way, his interest right now is higher with Auburn than anyplace else. Talk about hedging your bets.

The 5-foot-9, 201-pounder from Little Rock, Ark., reportedly bench presses 320 pounds, squats 450 pounds, and can run the 40-yard dash in 4.4 seconds. Dyer is also intelligent, holding a 3.42 GPA in high school. And then, of course, there's his amazing high school stats.

How about 4,694 yards rushing combined over the past two seasons with 47 touchdowns? And then there's his receiving yards over that same span -- 402 yards and four touchdowns -- making him a dual threat.

Rivals considers Dyer the 11th-best player in the entire 2010 class and the No. 3 running back. There are a lot of teams vying for his services, but Auburn, with offensive coordinator Gus Malzahn at the controls, is leading the way. With a good 2009 season, things could really take an upward turn for Auburn.
