Biography

Dye was a three-star prospect out of Norco High School in California but has played like a five-star for the Ducks since his true freshman season. He enrolled in Eugene a semester early, giving him a jump on things so he could start nine of 11 games played in 2016, garnering Freshman All-American and honorable mention All-Pac-12 honors (91 tackles, 13 for loss, 6.5 sacks, one interception). Dye started all 13 games, led the Ducks in tackles, and was named second-team all-conference by league coaches in both 2017 (107 tackles, 13.5 for loss, four sacks, one interception, four pass breakups) and 2018 (115 tackles, eight for loss, two sacks, one interception). He led the Ducks in tackles for the fourth straight year in 2019 to earn second-team all-conference notice, posting 84 stops in 13 games (9.5 for loss, 2.5 sacks) as well as two interceptions, four pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. Football is the thing in the Dye household. His brother, Travis, is a sophomore running back for Oregon. His father, Mark, played at San Jose State. One brother (Tony) played at UCLA and for a short time in the NFL and another brother (Jordan) played receiver at Sterling College.
