Tennessee junior Jalin Hyatt used his determination and talents to become one of this season's three finalists for the Biletnikoff Award as college football's top receiver.

Hyatt has used his talents and his last name to land a unique name, image and likeness (NIL) deal.

World of Hyatt in Chicago announced Tuesday that it has agreed to an NIL deal with the 6-foot, 180-pounder from Irmo, South Carolina, who amassed 67 receptions for 1,267 yards (18.8 yards per catch) and 15 touchdowns during Tennessee's 10-2 regular season. Hyatt's 15 touchdowns is tied for first nationally and set a single-season program record.

As part of the agreement, World of Hyatt will provide gift cards to help each of Hyatt's teammates' families with hotel rooms for the upcoming Orange Bowl against Clemson. World of Hyatt also will help Hyatt "celebrate a record-breaking season by providing him the opportunity to visit Hyatt properties once the season wraps."
