KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — 247 Sports released its True Freshman All-American Team for the 2020 season on Monday and has named Jalin Hyatt as one of three wide receivers in the country that could make an immediate impact for his respective team.

The 6-foot, 175-pound true freshman out of South Carolina has a chance to make a splash for the Vols’ offense this year as Tennessee lost Marquez Callaway and Jauan Jennings to the NFL as well as the recent news of redshirt-junior Deangelo Gibbs opting out of the 2020 season.

Hyatt was rated as the nation’s 33rd-ranked wide receiver and as a four-star prospect in the 247 Sports composite rankings.

247 Sports explains why Hyatt made their list, “At Tennessee, Hyatt has a chance to totally transform the Vols’ receiver room from plodders to purebreds. He’s a 10.4 burner and has been receiving rave reviews for his polish as well.”
