Hytchye was a target at Kentucky of the previous staff, but they never were able to fully connect. However, when Stoops and his staff came in, they convinced him that their defensive scheme was suited for him.
"I had a chance to sit down with D.J. Eliot and you can tell he's a very bright coach and is going to be a great defensive coordinator," said Hytchye to FOX Sports Next writer, Dave Berk. "He lights up when he talks about certain things and got me excited and wanting to play for him," Hytchye continued.
Hytchye is a corner blessed with good size (6-foot, 175) and great speed, (4.4). Hytchye also does a great job breaking on the ball in both man and zone coverage.
