The WVU football team was on a bye this past week which gave the coaching staff the opportunity to building upon the Mountaineers future. One member of the coaching staff, quarterbacks coach Michael Burchett, made a stop in Alabama and may have found the Mountaineers future quarterback. WVU offered 2017 quarterback Daulton Hyatt of Arab School (AL) and WVU instantly jumped to the top of his list.
Hyatt, 6’4 182 lbs. pro style quarterback, is a rising star in the state of Alabama and the WVU offer excites him. “Getting the offer from Coach Burchett is huge and I’m super excited about it. It’s an awesome feeling knowing that they have the confidence in me to run their offense.” Hyatt certainly has the tools to be the successful in the Mountaineers offense with his ability to stay in the pocket as well as his ability to check down to secondary receivers. But it may become difficult to get Hyatt to Morgantown.
Getting Hyatt out of Alabama will be a tough task given the Tide’s interest in him. Auburn and Ole Miss are also after Hyatt although no official offer has been extended from them just yet but Hyatt isn’t ruling the Mountaineers out even if those schools make an official offer. “I need to build a relationship with the WVU coaching staff but the Mountaineers air raid offense definitely separates them from other schools.” Outside of those three local schools, watch for Miami, North Carolina, North Carolina State, and Wake Forest in his recruitment process. Regardless of who else comes calling Hyatt likes the thought of being the signal caller for the Mountaineers, “Commanding the WVU offense would be a dream come true for me given their reputation for an explosive offense.”
Hyatt doesn’t have an official visit scheduled at the moment but will sit down with his parents to figure out a weekend to make a trip to Morgantown.
As a sophomore at Arab School, Hyatt threw for 2,250 yards and 16 touchdowns while also running for 731 yards with 8 touchdowns for his 6A school.
