Linebacker/running back Jerome Hayes has scheduled his fourth official visit and is working on setting up his fifth.
"I'm going to Rutgers on Dec. 3," said the 6-foot-2, 225-pound prospect from Bayonne, N.J. "I've already been to Florida, and on the weekends right after the trip to Rutgers I'll be at Michigan State and Miami. I'm still thinking about where I want to go for my fifth visit, but I do want to take it."
What schools are trying to convince Hayes to come to their campus?
"I'm hearing a lot from Michigan, Maryland and Louisville, and I've got a lot of interest in all three of them. I think I'll end up visiting one of them, and I'd still be looking at the other two. I probably need to start narrowing things down, but I'll know more after December is over and I've taken more visits."
Bayonne lost in the first round of the New Jersey state playoffs, and Hayes' coach hasn't come out with the team's stat report yet. He plans on making his decision after the All-American game or on Signing Day.
