Virginia Tech lost a commitment on Sunday when 2020 wide receiver Jalin Hyatt decided to open his recruitment.

Hyatt committed to Virginia Tech way back on February 2 over offers from Tennessee, Michigan, Penn State, Arkansas, Duke and several other programs. Since then he has added an offer from Miami, but the Hurricanes’ offer doesn’t seem to be the reason that he’s looking around. Instead, Hyatt seems to feel that he committed far too early to the Hokies, and wants to better assess all of his options. He most recently visited Tennessee.
As a junior at Dutch Fork High School in Irmo, SC, Hyatt recorded 71 receptions for 1,316 yards. This decommitment did not come out the blue, as the coaching staff anticipated it and offered South Florida commit Tyree Saunders, who hopes to take a visit to Blacksburg this summer. Norfolk, VA wide receiver KeAndre Lambert also remains at the top of Virginia Tech’s list.
