One of the top two way linemen in the West region is Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey's Jovon Hayes. The talented lineman said he's still considering about eight schools and has the five schools he'll officially visit already picked out.
Hayes, 6-2, 320 pounds is a player whose stock is really rising and he's quickly becoming one of the top nation's most sought after recruits. The athlete shined at several summer camps and has impressed us a little more every time we've seen him.
The lineman plays both defensive tackle and offensive guard and could play on either side of the ball in college as well.
"I prefer defense but it really doesn't matter to me where I play," Hayes said. "I'll play wherever the team needs me and whatever gets me on the field the fastest."
Hayes is over the 30 scholarship offer mark and said his phone has been ringing off the hook since September 1. Right now, five schools, including a few we had not heard Hayes mention before, are in the mix for visits.
"My five visits will be to Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Cal and Colorado," Hayes said. "I haven't set up any trip dates yet but I'm going to try and take a couple of during the season and then the rest after the season. I want to try and take all five for sure.
"I'm also still looking at Arizona and Miami but I'm not planning to visit either right now. I took an unofficial visit to Arizona in the summer so I feel like I already know a lot about them but I'm still looking at them. USC has been recruiting me a little harder and has called me to say they're still watching me.

I'm looking for a place where I can play early, where I'm comfortable with all the coaches and a school with a strong Business program because that's what I want to major in."Here to view this Link.
