College football: Players drop bombshells amid championship season
While some thought his recent news of signing a NIL deal with Hyatt hotels foreshadowed a return to college football, the wide receiver's latest declaration indicates that may not be the case.
"After careful consideration with my family, I have decided to begin preparing for the 2023 NFL Draft. Though I will not be playing in the Orange Bowl. I will be there in Miami to support my teammates like I always have."
Hyatt’s decision to enter the NFL Draft is certainly one Volunteer fans didn’t want.
With the Vols now missing their top receiver in Hyatt, head coach Josh Heupel will be looking to use wideouts Ramel Keyton and Bru McCoy. Both are projected to step up and be top receivers in the 2023 season.
Michigan lands Nebraska linebacker transfer Ernest Hausmann
Amid college football's transfer portal madness, the Michigan Wolverines have picked up another big player.
Former Nebraska Cornhuskers linebacker Ernest Hausmann announced his commitment to Jim Harbaugh's Michigan team on Thursday, becoming the second transfer to commit since the portal opened last week.
As a true freshman in the 2022 season, Hausmann excelled on the field for Nebraska's defense.
Starting seven games and playing in 12 total this season, he posted 54 tackles, two tackles for loss, one sack, and one fumble recovery.
Against his future team, the Wolverines, Hausmann racked up 10 tackles – one tackle for loss and one sack.
Competing with the likes of Junior Colson, Nikhai Hill-Green, and Jimmy Rolder next season, Hausmann will have three years of eligibility remaining.
