Four-star offensive lineman Jovon Hayes (6-2, 320, 5.5) from Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey has approximately 30 offers on the table. Therefore it is newsworthy when his list of favorite's schools gets trimmed down six.
The last six schools standing at this time are Cal, Arizona, Arizona State, Florida, LSU and Oklahoma.
What did Hayes pick these schools as his final six?
"I went up to Cal and saw the campus," Hayes said. "It was beautiful."
"I met with all of Cal's coaches and they were up front," Hayes said. "They didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but the truth. I think I could have a chance to play early at Cal."
"Arizona is recruiting me the hardest," Hayes said. "I went to camp there and liked the area. Arizona was also the first school to offer."
"I grew up liking Arizona State and I like Coach Mark Carrier a lot," Hayes said. "I haven't been to ASU yet but I think I'm going to visit there."
"I also grew up liking Florida, too," Hayes said. "Florida has a new coach who is dedicated to winning and they have a good business school. The opportunity for early playing time is also at Florida."
"I get along really well with LSU and their coaches," Hayes said. "Coach Todd Monken is recruiting me for LSU and he's a cool guy."
"Since the ninth grade I started to like LSU," Hayes said. "I don't know why I just liked them. Then you look at what happened to them during Hurricane Katrina and they still come and play hard. You have to like that."
"Oklahoma is a great place for me to go because they do a great job producing offensive linemen every year," Hayes said. "OU also has a good chance for a visit."
"I've been getting a lot of calls since September 1st," Hayes said. "Florida, ASU, Cal, Colorado, USC, LSU – a lot of college coaches have called."
