Hayes visited all three of his finalists officially, and has different reasons for all three being the schools he is considering at the end.
Stanford: Really what is keeping them in the mix is I know Coach (Johnny) Dawkins will develop me into the player that I want to be due to his knowledge of being a great player and his coaching ability. Also Stanford is obviously a great school and if you get a degree from Stanford you will be set for life.
Ohio State: It has always been a dream school for me. Ohio State has always been one of my dream schools and they are one of the best teams in the country.
Wisconsin: I like Wisconsin and the coaching staff and they like me as well. I like how they do things, how they have recruited me, and the plan they have for me if I was to be a Badger.
At the moment no specific date has been announced for when he plans on deciding, but Hayes says it won't be long before everyone knows.
"I haven't set a specific date for a decision, but it may be soon," Hayes explained. "By soon I don't mean this week, but it won't be much longer."
Hayes is a three-star prospect and one of the best players in the state of Ohio.
