Palmetto, Fla Keyon Hayes Versatile RB (Lakewood High School) 2020 Prospect 5'10" 175
Hayes is an under-the-radar, prospect that has a good skill set that will gain attention from smaller schools. Hayes had a productive year as a junior while at St. Petersburg Catholic High school. He transferred to Powerhouse Lakewood high where he saw limited touches. Production took a hit as well as Hayes academics caused some schools to shy away. He is still a prospect that possess good football instincts, He's the type back that can develop into a solid next level prospect.
Running back Breakdown:
Adequate size at 5' 10" 175 will definitely need to bulk up at the next level. Footwork still needs a bit fine tuning as he will grow and mature as a back at the colligate level Speed: Ran 4.6 in 40. Ability good body control. Patient waiting for plays to develop. Elusive in tight spaces and runs with power. Has speed to get to edge. Knows how to set up blocks. Development of cut-back ability is needed as he doesn't always hit open lanes. Needs to show he can run between tackles on a every down basis in college. Having the size to touch ball 15-plus times a game is a concern. Always competes at a high level and shows the toughness to make plays when his number is called.
Analysis: Keyon Hayes is another young RB from the sunshine state that got lost in the shuffle. Made the best of his opportunities on a deep talented roster ball team. Bottom Line: size and limited play is his biggest knock, a lack of production also doesn't help. However with the right opportunty he will flourish within the system.
