Jalin Hyatt is not mincing words this season about the Tennessee offense.

The Vols wide receiver told reporters this week that, “I hadn’t thought about any transfer things or anything like that, because I can tell what we can do in this offense. This offense is going to be the best in the country, I can tell you that right now, that’s why I didn’t want to leave at all. Man, I love these guys.”

Hyatt, who is from Irmo, South Carolina, has played in 23 career games with 2 starts, and he’s usually known as a big-play threat. Of his 41 catches, 16 have gone for at least 10 yards, 9 have gone for at least 20 yards and 6 plays have gone for at least 30 yards. Hyatt has caught 4 touchdowns, and recorded 502 receiving yards, including 185 after the catch

Last year alone, Hyatt was third on the team in catches with 21 for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns. What’s more, 10 of his 21 receptions went for a first down and 3 were at least 25 yards.

Hyatt may be most remembered last year for one of the biggest catches of the year in the Music City Bowl against Purdue when he caught a 2-yard pass from Hendon Hooker in the corner of the end zone on fourth down with less than 2 minutes remaining that tied the game.
