Interest is rising for 2011 Varina sleeper RB

Richmond (Va.) Varina had its share of talent in 2010. The school features an impressive prospect in 2011 as well, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound tailback according to head coach Stu Brown.
"He was huge for us in some games," Varina head coach Stu Brown said of tailback De'Chavon Hayes. "The biggest thing about him is that he is one of those tremendous athletes. He played quarterback, running back, wide receiver, free safety and both cornerback spots for us. He was big in the return game.
"He's very good and already on people's radars. He only had 600-yards rushing, but averaged 13-yards per carry sharing time with Trey Johnson. He's also academically strong with a 2.7 GPA."
A number of colleges are interested in the tailback according to his coach including Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland and West Virginia.
"He is a Division I player and we're looking forward to seeing him play more next year. When he gets loose, you're not going to catch him. He's very talented."
