Jalin Hyatt Commits to Tennessee

Jul 28, 2019 | Tennessee Commitments, VOL Articles

Tennessee officially landed their 13th commitment for the 2020 class yesterday. The commitment is from Jalin Hyatt, a 4 star WR who attends Dutch Fork in Irmo, South Carolina. Hyatt recently decommitted from Virginia Tech, on June 30th. After parting ways with the Hokies, Tennessee was considered the front runner in his recruitment and he has made it official today. Hyatt is known for his extreme speed, as he is one of the fastest players in the nation. According to 247 Sports, Hyatt runs a 4.31 on the forty, which is one of the best in the nation! But it isn’t just speed Hyatt is bringing to Knoxville, he also has the ability to torch defenses deep down the field, he is a deep threat that can take the next step into an elite player under the guidance of one of the best coaching staffs in the nation. 

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.
