Vols QB Bailey works out with WR Signee Hyatt

Matthew Ray

Covid-19 has made a serious impact on the world as we know it. The virus has put work, travel, and even sports on hold while Americans practice social distancing in groups of less than 10 people. However, Harrison Bailey and Jalin Hyatt want to be on track whenever they may get to step on campus together in Knoxville. Hyatt and family made the three plus hour track to Atlanta to get in multiple reps with his future QB, so the two can start to build chemistry. You can see a bevy of short, intermediate and deep throws between the two, and Hyatt’s younger brother, Devin, as they work multiple route concepts in this 5 minute video. Jalin is not wearing a shirt  in the video and Devin is in the gray cutoff (for reference).

While these are just routes on air, you get an opportunity to look at the first work between these two future teammates, who are expected to be future stars on Rocky Top. Devin Hyatt is a rising sophomore, who holds offers from Tennessee, Oregon, and Virginia Tech.

I agree he’s not ready and your Evaluation is spot on... but He will be ready, those issues will be corrected in a short time with chemistry. The deep balls at the end of the clip were miraculous. He still has game 1 starter Potential.

It makes me happy to see this. & I'm not hating, but it's MUCH needed. The ball needs to come out of his hand MUCH sooner. Those comeback throws would most likely be pick 6's. We need to not rush this young man & let him develop. He's going to be great QB but for fans thinking/saying he should start as a Freshman, hold your horses. He's not ready. Again, I'm not knocking the kid. I personally think he's going to be 1 of the all time great QB's at UT & possibly in the NFL.
