Texas safety gets two more Big 12 offers

The next wave of defensive backs at Lancaster (Texas) High School is continuing to emerge in the world of recruiting. The trio of Deon Criss, Quentin Hayes and Tyler Stephenson should follow in the footsteps of the great class of 2009 and all sign D-I scholarships. The most recent prospect to add to his list of offers is the safety Hayes.

The 6-foot-1 physical safety had already held offers from Baylor, Colorado State and Tulsa. Now Hayes has picked up offer from two more Big 12 programs.

"I just found that out," Hayes said. "Texas Tech and Kansas offered me. I liked it. I haven't been talking to them but I guess they came through."

Of the two, Texas Tech is the school that Hayes is more familiar with.

"I'm thinking about it," he said of the offer. "It's a good school. It's a school a would go to. Kansas I haven't really watched that much."

The increased interest has come on quickly for Hayes and he has been surprised at the volume. He is taking it in stride though and is planning more junior days to help him sort things out.

"I mean I thought it was going to take longer but it's coming up pretty quickly," Hayes said "I go to Baylor this Sunday and I go to Texas on the 28th of next week. [Texas] is just somewhere I've been wanting to go to. It's one of the first schools I liked."

While Texas is one school Hayes would love to get an offer from, there is one other school that he has his eye on.

"Alabama is a school that I've liked," he said. "They send me a lot of mail. I'd like to get an offer from them.'

This weekend Hayes competes in his first track meet of the year where he will run the 4x100 and 4x200 relays.
