Arkansas Recruiting Update: QB Daulton Hyatt Commits To The Razorbacks

New, 1 comment

Quarterback 6'4" 180 lbs. Attalla, Alabama

The Razorbacks generally try to bring in one quarterback with each recruiting class, and it appears they've made their choice for the 2017 class.

Daulton Hyatt has committed to Arkansas and will join what's sure to be a highly competitive group on the depth chart in the coming years. Since the Hogs won't have a senior quarterback in 2016, everybody currently on the team could be back by the time Hyatt gets campus in 2017. It's a pretty amazing turnaround for a position that had to rely on a walk-on backup in Bret Bielema's first season.

Hyatt chose the Razorbacks over offers from Miami, West Virginia, Louisville, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Maryland, and several others. He has 16 offers. He's considered a 3-star prospect (though it's still very early in the recruiting evaluation process) as a pro-style passer, but he also runs a reported 4.69 in the 40-yard dash with a 6'4" build, so he has nice size and speed.

Both Alabama and Auburn have apparently shown interest. Here's a story from AL.com titled "Will Alabama or Auburn Keep Arab QB Daulton Hyatt From Going to the ACC?" (Hyatt has been playing for his hometown school in Arab, Alabama but is transferring this year to Etowah High in Attalla, Alabama).

This is Arkansas' third commitment for the 2017 recruiting class.
