  • It is not difficult to notice athletic ability and Hyatt definitely has it. He had phenomenal numbers in a couple of tests at the beginning of the camp.

    "My broad jump was 9-7," said Hyatt. "I had a 9-5 broad jump at Ole Miss a couple of days ago but 9-7 is my best. And my vertical (here) was 32. My best was 34-5."

    He enjoyed his overall camp experience at Mississippi State.

    "I really liked the camp," said Hyatt. "I learned a lot from the coaches, doing drills with the receivers really helped a lot.

    "I learned some things about footwork. We worked on some stuff such as throwing on the run. That helped me a lot."

    He enjoyed being around his position coach at Mississippi State, quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson.

    "I liked Coach Johnson, he's a really nice guy," said Hyatt. "I liked his personality the best."

    Coach Johnson also liked what he saw from the young talented QB.

    "I think they like how I can use my legs to move around and make plays when I need to and my arm strength," said Hyatt. "(He) mentioned Big Dawg camp to me. He said it is in July. I hope to come back for it."

    While the Mississippi State coaches were impressed with Hyatt, he also came away impressed with what he saw from Mississippi State.

    "I really how laid back it is at Mississippi State," said Hyatt. "This is my first time to be here and I hope to come back."

    Mississippi State is one of several college camps that he will attend.

    "I have been to camps at Alabama, Ole Miss, Mississippi State," said Hyatt. "I also plan on going to camps at North Carolina, Wake Forest, Vanderbilt, Auburn and maybe a few others."

    Several colleges are showing interest in Hyatt. One has even offered him.

    "I have an offer from Miami (FL), Alabama is showing a lot of interest, Ole Miss has shown a lot," said Hyatt. "I have also gotten a lot of stuff from North Carolina and Texas. Mississippi State hasn't shown as much interest as other people but that is why I came to this camp. I was hoping to get exposed to them."
