Here’s what Bill Snyder had to say about Hubert’s progress prior to the 2018 spring game:
“Wyatt makes headway constantly. He’s one of those young guys that is really into it and really cares about it. It makes a difference to him. He tries to do what coaches ask of him, and he is a guy that gives it his very best effort every snap. Guys like that are always going to make some headway, and he continues to do so. Good young guy.”
