Was able to earn significant playing time in his first season, a nice feat for a true freshman defensive lineman ... Showed his pass-rush potential with a pair of quarterback sacks and two hurries ... Plays the backup role behind All-SEC senior Bud Dupree ... Like Dupree, he has the size and strength to play end in the base 4-3 defense and also the mobility to play linebacker in the 3-4 alignment.

2013 (Freshman): Solid season with 19 tackles, three tackles for loss, two sacks and three quarterback hurries ... Saved the best game for last, recording four tackles vs. Tennessee with two tackles for loss and a sack ... Had three tackles and a sack vs. South Carolina ... Saw action in 10 games.

High School: One of the nation's top prospects at defensive end ... Rated No. 8 in the country by Rivals.com, #10 by Scout.com, #14 by ESPN.com and #16 by 247Sports.com ... Helped lead Trinity High School to three-consecutive Class 6A state championships and a three-year record of 41-2 ... First-team all-state as a senior by the Louisville Courier-Journal and The Associated Press ... Made 37 tackles as a senior, including 13.5 quarterback sacks and four additional tackles for loss ... Played in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio, Texas following senior campaign ... One of the nation's top-200 prospects by ESPN ... Scout.com's Scott Kennedy says Hatcher "has the speed to play outside linebacker and the frame to grown into an every down defense end. He is tremendously quick off the line and fast in pursuit. He relies on speed and quickness rather than strength." ... Had 40 tackles his junior and sophomore seasons, including 12 sacks his junior year and 11.5 TFL his sophomore season ... Coached by Bob Beatty.

Personal: Born in Louisville, Ky. ... Son of Jason Hatcher Sr. and Donna Curry ... Considering a major in animal sciences.
