Kim Grinolds of Dawgman.com reached Marvin this evening after he returned home from his recruiting trip.
"I can play either wide receiver or strong safety. I'm mostly being recruited as a strong safety," said Haynes. "A lot of people like me at receiver because of my size. I like to score, so I prefer receiver," said Haynes.
He has speed to burn. "I run a 4.4, a 10.8 100," said Haynes.
He has visited Wyoming, Fresno State, and now Washington, and has one more trip scheduled to Arizona State. Utah has offered him a scholarship in addition to Wyoming, Arizona State, and California.
He visited Washington mostly because of Coach Willingham. "I wanted to meet him in person. I was really excited about that. Coach Tormey has been recruiting me," said Haynes.
Chet Sanders hosted Haynes. "He showed me around and talked to me about the great fan support they get up there. He talked about how their system might work."
Haynes knows Kenny James from his prep days at Dos Palos. "I didn't get a chance to talk to him though. The highlight of the trip was going to the basketball game and sitting in the student section. That was fun. Then we walked out onto the field. Husky Stadium is beautiful," said Haynes.
"I talked to Coach Willingham a lot. What can you say about him, he really knows what he is doing. He doesn't just care about only football – he cares about whether or not you succeed in life."
Washington has not offered a scholarship yet. "We will talk about that next week," said Haynes.
He will visit ASU next week and possibly Oregon on January 28th. "I think this was my best trip so far," said Haynes, however he favors Fresno State right now. "They offered me a scholarship, so that is the main thing."
Haynes will most likely wait until February 1st until he makes his decision.
