Hayes picks up big offer

A strong showing in Orlando has led to an important offer for Ohio native Nigel Hayes.

Three-star power forward Nigel Hayes was very good down at the AAU Super Showcase in Orlando. In Orlando Hayes helped lead All-Ohio Red to a solid finish, and now he has translated it to success on the recruiting front.

Hayes attends Toledo (Ohio) Whitmer High School and grew up a lifelong Buckeye fan. His older brother, Ken Hayes, attends Ohio State, and now the Buckeyes have offered.

"O-State just offered me," said Hayes.

He continued, "It feels great to get offered by one of the schools I've always to go to," Hayes said of the Ohio State.

Along with the offer from Ohio State, Hayes picked up an offer from Rhode Island on Monday, and previously had offers from Wisconsin, LaSalle, and Toledo along with having interest from Stanford and Northwestern.
