Following the trip, the 6-foot-3, 250-pound prospect discussed his impressions of the school and his future plans for the recruiting process.

"It was a good trip. They showed me a good time and it was an exciting game," Hyder said. "I liked the campus atmosphere and I liked the academic side of it. There was a lot of academic support. They boosted their stock, of course. I'm going to take some other visits and compare other schools to it."
