The offer count has stayed relatively the same for Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey offensive guard Jovon Hayes but there are two teams out in front for the four-star rated Rivals250 member.
Offers have come in from all over the country from Florida, LSU, Oklahoma, Arizona, Arizona State, and many others. However, the 6-foot-2, 320-pound dominating lineman is looking especially hard at two out-of-state schools that have showed him extra special attention.
"Arizona and Oklahoma are my top two," Hayes said. "They're just recruiting me the hardest and Arizona is a program that's coming up. Oklahoma is always good and they produce good lineman that go on to do big things."

This week Hayes will also set up his official visits. Three of those will be during his season and he's already got the teams locked down for those spots.
"Florida, LSU, and Oklahoma are for sure," Hayes said. "I grew up liking Florida so I want to see them and LSU has always been a good team. They're recruiting me really hard."
After Hayes completes five official visits, he'll decide. Obviously, distance from home will not be a factor but there are some things that he is keeping his eye on before committing.
"First, I want to see where I can get the best education for business," he said. "I want to be able to get along with the coaches too. Third, I'm looking at where I can play the earliest."
"What'd I like to see would be sophomore year at the latest for me to step and make an impact."
Hayes is rated as the No. 24 prospect in the state of California.
