Hyder has yet to receive his first scholarship offer, but he is generating a lot of interest from schools across the country.
Hyder says that he is open to everybody at this point in time, but one school sticks out above the others.
"UT," Hyder replied when asked if any school stood out above the rest. "I have always wanted to go to UT. I've got tickets to every home game, so I am there just about every week."
Hyder has obviously been on campus at the University of Texas a number of times this year. During his visits, he has talked to Jermichael Finley, Limas Sweed and Jamaal Charles among others. Hyder has also started to build relationships with Greg Davis and Mack Brown.
Another school that Hyder took strong interest in over the summer was Texas A&M. He attending Game Night in College Station and will likely try to make a game before the end of the year.
"I like the tradition they have at A&M. They always have the 12th man in their stadium. It's really exciting," Hyder said. "I haven't been able to make it to a game yet. I am going to try and make it this weekend, but if I can't I'm definitely going to make the Texas A&M and Texas game."
Hyder has helped lead Johnson High School to a 6-1 start this year. They will take on Manor this Friday.
