With just a few days remaining until national signing day, things are heating up for Miami Edison Senior linebacker Geno Hayes.

The four-star linebacker is looking at Georgia Military and a few others in case he does not qualify. "I think I will be able to qualify, but I just want to have a backup plan. I have also looked at Pearl River."

Tomorrow will be a very busy day for the four-star linebacker as he will meet with two head coaches and take his final official visit. "The Clemson coaching staff will be here tomorrow. Coach Bowden is coming down. I'm looking forward to talking with him. Later tomorrow Coach Fulmer will be coming by as well," said Hayes.

The prize recruit will also take his final official visit this weekend when he visits Florida State. "I will be leaving to go to Florida State tomorrow night. My parents will be coming up with me."

When asked if he has a leader, Hayes responded, "No, not right now really. They are all pretty much even."

The Tigers, Noles and Vols will have to wait until next Wednesday to find out where Hayes will play next season. "Yeah, I am going to wait until signing day to make my announcement," said Hayes.

That's going to be one of the biggest factors in where I decide to go. We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding linebacker from Florida, right up through signing day 2005.
