After a quiet freshman season that saw him reel in just eight catches for 106 yards, South Carolina tight end Hayden Hurst enjoyed two productive seasons in 2016 and 2017. He caught at least 44 passes in both seasons, finishing with a total of 92 for 1,175 yards. He only managed three touchdowns in this collection, however. But it’s perhaps telling that his two scores in 2017 accounted for 11 percent of the total receiving scores for the whole team. In 2017, his 44 receptions were the second most on the Gamecock’s roster, as were his 559 receiving yards. All told, his career tally of 1,281 yards ranks as the most by a TE in school history. His final season saw him catch at least three passes in 10 games, including each of his last six. His best game of the season came against Georgia. Against the Bulldogs, he caught seven passes for 93 yards.
