 Draft Scout College Football Player News


  Sean Dykes got a text from former teammate Joey Magnifico before Memphis began its season Saturday. It was two words. Let's go. After missing most of last season with a knee injury, Dykes badly wanted to be the player he was in 2018. He got his chance in the Tigers' 37-24 victory against Arkansas State at Liberty Bowl Memorial Stadium. The senior tight end had two touchdowns, a career-high 10 catches and his first 100-yard receiving game since 2017. Dykes also had the Tigers' longest play from scrimmage, a 38-yard catch that set up a field goal It sure seemed Dykes was back.

"It felt good to be back out there for the first time, it felt like, in two years. It felt like a big relief off my shoulders because I've been being patient," said Dykes, who finished with 137 receiving yards. Dykes' second touchdown gave the Tigers a 34-17 lead in third quarter. He was targeted 10 times and did not record a drop. It was what he hoped to do last season alongside Magnifico and prove that his 161 receiving yards in the 2017 AAC Championship game wasn't a fluke. But after he played in the first four games of the 2019 season, the Tigers decided to shut him down to heal. Dykes had to watch the best season in school history as a spectator. - Memphis Commercial Appeal
