Penn State narrowly edged Nebraska for the fifth and final official visit.
"I got a cousin there, so it will be nice to see him," Hayes said.
Hayes was set to take an unofficial trip to Rutgers (1/21), but the inclement weather put a damper on those plans.
"I like them all, they are all great schools."
Hayes has already tripped to Miami (12/17 official trip), Florida (10/8), Rutgers (12/3) and Michigan State (12/10/2004), but favors Miami, Florida, Rutgers and Penn State.
As with most recruits during this time of year, rumors have surfaced about Hayes being eligible or not. The U.S. Army All-American cleared those rumors up quickly.
"I have a 2.8 GPA and I scored 810 on the SAT, I'm straight."
