▪️ ANALYSIS Hayes is one of the up and coming Wichita area stars in the rising 2025 class. Gets off the line quick and can accelerate past the DB to get open for those big plays down the field. Is extremely dangerous after the catch in the open field. Did a lot of his damage after the catch on short look-in passes. Has a nice stop-and-go move when lined out wide that he uses effectively to set up deep routes. Can start and stop quickly, changes direction well in the open field. Can find open seams in a defense as a route runner. Has good hands. Consistent pass catcher. Can be difficult to tackle in the open field, slippery. Talented prospect with upside due to speed and quickness.
