The Tennessee Vols are one of four programs still in the mix for 2023 four-star wide receiver Devin Hyatt.

Hyatt revealed his top four schools via Twitter on Wednesday and he included Tennessee, along with Alabama, Georgia, and South Carolina.

Hyatt, 6-foot-2/194 lbs from Irmo, SC (he plays high school football at IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL), is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 37 wide receiver in the nation and the No. 49 player in the state of Florida.

The speedy wide receiver is the brother of current Vols wide receiver Jalin Hyatt, which should seemingly give Tennessee an advantage in this recruiting battle. The younger Hyatt is of course his own person and his recruitment his unique to him, but there’s undoubtedly a pull to want to play with his brother.

Hyatt has visited his brother at Tennessee several times. He’s also visited the program as a recruit, so he’s seen both sides of the coin (what the coaches show recruits versus what the players show recruits).

The Vols are in a good spot here for Hyatt. In fact, I think this is a situation where Tennessee is still deciding if he’s a “take” in the 2023 class. Hyatt missed time in 2021 due to injuries, so the Vols probably want to see if he can stay healthy this fall before guaranteeing him a spot in their 2023 recruiting class.
