Mitch Hyatt

True-freshman Mitch Hyatt made his first career start on Saturday and looked like he was a seasoned veteran. Sure, he made a few mistakes, but the coaches ran behind him and entrusted in him Deshaun Watson’s blindside. Hyatt proved to be worth all of his high school accolades as he was a great commodity to the Clemson offense.

He also showed he had a bit of a nasty streak in him as he shoved a few Wofford defenders and took them to the ground. He did a great job blocking all day long and I applaud the true-freshman for his physical and mental toughness to begin the season. He is going to be a huge part of the Clemson offense for the next three seasons and it is comforting to know how much talent he has within him.
