Hayden Hurst Career
An Early Career
He played football and baseball for the Bulldogs athletic teams while attending The Bolles School. He was then chosen by the Pittsburgh Pirates in the 17th round of the 2012 MLB draft and went on to sign with the Pirates for a $400,000 signing bonus, turning down a baseball scholarship from Florida State. Thus he went on to play two seasons in the Pirates organization before walking onto South Carolina’s football team. In his only minor league pitching appearance, he walked five batters and went on to throw wild pitches in one-third of an inning. However, he gave up baseball because he was afflicted by “the yips”.

He then went on and caught a career-high seven passes against Kentucky. In total, he caught 48 passes for 616 yards. Thus he was awarded a scholarship the following spring. Once again, he played in all 13 games (including the 2018 Outback Bowl) as a junior in 2017, as he caught 44 passes for 559 yards and two touchdowns. Unanimously, he was named to the 2017 All-SEC football team. On December 7, 2017, he declared for the 2018 NFL Draft, nearly a month before the 2018 Outback Bowl against Michigan. In the 2018 Outback Bowl, he recorded three receptions for 41 yards for a 26-19 South Carolina victory over Michigan.
