Nice surprise today!!!! My man finally pulled the trigger...#OKG16 with a PAC12 baller pedigree #OnToTheNextOne— Matt Dudek (@AZ_Matty_D) June 10, 2015
Rated a three-star prospect by both Scout and 247 out of Calabasas HS (CA), Hayes was once committed to Boise State, but decomitted on May 29th. He went on an unofficial visit to Arizona back in March.
His dad, Chris Hayes, played at Washington State, and his brother Chris Jr. currently attends Oregon State.
The elder Chris went on to play defensive back in the NFL for the Green Bay Packers (1996), New York Jets (1997-2001) and New England Patriots (2002). His only career interception came in 2000, and all 19 of his career tackles came in 2001-02.
