Seymour said that he knew how to swim. Dye and his brothers, according to Seymour, were attempting to cross a cove in the beach area, but something led Dye to turn back.

“It’s hard to tell if he got exhausted and cramped up,” she said. “But he went under.”

His body was discovered at approx. 6 pm.

Dye played three seasons for the Clemson Tigers, before transferring to the East Carolina Pirates in his final season.

The running back had 76 carries for 351 yards and five touchdowns in three seasons with the Tigers in 16 games. He also had two receptions for 11 yards.

In his lone season with the Pirates, he had 50 carries for 217 yards. He also had six receptions for 56 yards.
