It was assumed by many he might be ready for the NFL Draft from a skillset standpoint, but Mitch Hyatt, the All-American Clemson left tackle has decided to return to Clemson in 2018.

The news came late Wednesday afternoon and was released by the university.

"I have decided to return to Clemson for my senior year," Hyatt said in the release. "I have some unfinished business on the field and I know another year will benefit me."

Hyatt has been a mainstay on Clemson's offensive line over the years and was a first-team All-ACC selection both last year and this season. If he is a first-team selection again next year, he would become the first-ever Clemson offensive lineman to receive such an honor three years in a row.
