"On the Hoof: Hayes is built like a big cornerback. He has wide shoulders and is very well proportioned. I also think he has the ability to gain another 15 pounds. His body structure is reminiscent of Notre Dame running back Theo Riddick.
Needs Improvement: He will need to add some more strength and size in order to make yards after contact at the next level. He could work on his balance. He needs to keep his feet moving, making it harder to bring him down.
Most Impressive: Very, very quick back with good speed and ball skills. Hayes is very versatile and could player defensive back, wide receiver or running back at the next level. He is a high-character kid that possesses serious leadership skills.
Conclusion: This kid will work hard and learn the playbook before most other incoming freshmen in his class. He has the ability to be a punt returner and a gunner on all kicks. He adds instant speed and will be hard to keep off the field.
