Bayonne, N.J. linebacker Jerome Hayes has made official visits to Florida, Rutgers, and Michigan State, with a trip to East Lansing coming this weekend.
"I had a nice time," Hayes said of his visit with the Spartans. "That was my second time there. It was covered with snow so I didn't get to see much of the campus. But the inside facilities are nice.
"The coaches are great. They all seem to really care about the players."
Asked to compare his three visits, Hayes said, "They were all about the same. They say different words, but they mean the same thing. I'm still stuck.
"I visit Miami next weekend. Then I'll probably take one Jan. 21, but I'm not sure where."
The 6-foot-2, 225 pound Hayes led Bayonne to a 7-4 record. He made 103 tackles. Hayes is the No. 13 outside linebacker prospect in the Rivals.com player rankings.
