ScoutTV: Tyler Hayes in action
Tyler Hayes had everyone in the stands on the Dempolis side of the field talking about his dominating night. He returned the opening kickoff 44 yards. He had a 12-yard run on the first play. He had a 17-yard touchdown run after Demopolis fumbled the ball on their first possession.
That was the beginning of the Tyler Hayes show. He is a speciman at 6-foot-3, 220-pounds who never comes off the field.
His speed is impressive for a player his size. He can take the ball the distance from anywhere on the field. He is quick, physical and powerful. He is a standout on the defensive side of the ball where he will play for the Crimson Tide.
Hayes delivers big hits and always plays the game with a high motor. The most impressive part of Hayes' game is his ability to chase down defenders from behind and running sideline-to-sideline.
Hayes did a good job of pressuring the quarterback to throw incompletions. He leveled a linebacker to secure John Knight's touchdown run on the first touchdown of the game. Hayes flatbacked 6-foot-3, 285-pound South Alabama commitment, Steven Foster, in the third quarter on a fumble return for a touchdown. The play was caught on this highlight reel.
Hayes is a highly-rated prospect, but could easily rank as a National 100 member. He will become one of the next great linebackers for the University of Alabama.
