Loganville (GA) / Grayson
Hayes was a three star safety prospect out of Georgia. He was rated as the 11th rated safety in the state according to Scout.com.
Hayes is charted as a safety and will being his career redshirting and projecting as either a rover or bandit next season.
Hayes projects as a player who will first find a spot in the defensive backfield and then challenge to move up the depth chart as a third year, redshirt sophomore and beyond.
How he ended up in Durham
A very early commitment, Hayes selected Duke over South Florida Wake Forest, and Cincinnati. The decision came within a week of South Florida making their scholarship offer. The difference was the love Hayes received from David Cutcliffe's staff in the recruiting process.
"(Duke) just felt like family to me," Hayes said. "When I went up there, there was a lot of love and stuff like that. It felt like it was the right place for me."
