With football season right around the corner, I thought I would share my the two incoming freshman I am most excited for this season. While there is talent overflowing in this class they two that catch my eye more than anything are Jalin Hyatt and Morven Joseph.
SPEED! Is the first thing that comes to mind when I think about Jalin. The dude is just flat out fast. With a 4.31 40 yard dash Hyatt will no doubt have a chance to make a huge impact not only in the special teams are but as a threat at wide receiver as well, standing at 6ft he has the athleticism to go for the jump balls tossed his way. I look for Jalin to have plenty of opportunities to play this season, and I think we will eventually see him on the rotation, especially as a deep threat. His stars are insane in his senior year 1361 yards receiving with 26 TDs to boot. He’ll be enjoying many touchdowns to come on Rocky Top!
Athleticism, Athleticism, Athleticism can define Joseph. Standing at 6ft 2in and weighing around 220lbs, Joseph is a freak of nature. Having elite off the ball speed and a motor that doesn’t stop. He’ll be a problem for SEC offensive linemen for years to come. I could see him rotating into the defensive lineup this year. His senior stats speak for themselves. Joseph has 115 total tackles, 13 sacks and an astonishing 41 QB hurries.
