Jalin Hyatt Commits to Tennessee
Tennessee loses 4 senior receivers after this season, making Hyatt an extremely important get for the Volunteers. During SEC Media Days, Jeremy Pruitt made a statement to receivers that were considering Tennessee. Pruitt said, “We only have 12 seniors, but 4 of them are wide receivers. I’m going to say that again, 4 of them are wide receivers, so if I was a wide receiver in high school, Tennessee would be a great landing spot in the future.” It now seems that statement has paid off for the Vols, as Jalin Hyatt has chosen Tennessee.
Another thing that put Tennessee ahead of the pack in Hyatt’s recruitment is current cornerback Bryce Thompson. Thompson also attended Dutch Fork, and was teammates with Hyatt for 2 seasons. Thompson helped recruit his close friend to Knoxville, and slowly flip him away from Virginia Tech.
Tennessee has finally landed their first true WR commit of the 2020 class, and now they look to keep the momentum and build it into something special.
