Early Life

Hayes was born on May 23, 2000, in Cincinnati, Ohio. He studied at Moeller High School where he first picked up a basketball and embraced it. It helped him to develop the foundation that is necessary for being a great player. When he was a freshman he was only six feet but by the time he was a senior, his height was 6’11.

Born to parent’s that were very encouraging of his goals, Hayes reflects on his childhood and the support that he got growing up from his family and the community he grew up in. When he was in the eighth-grade year he had even created a vision board where he said he wanted to be in the NFL or NBA in 10 years.

Hayes made the commitment to the University of Texas and decided that this was the place where he would pursue college basketball. Yet, he had gotten several offers from Kentucky, Xavier, Ohio State, Purdue, and Clemson.

He had a great start there where he would be named as the Big 12 Freshman of the Year. This would lay the framework for him being involved in several of the spots for the top performers that year including the Big 12 All-Newcomer Team and the Big 12 All-Freshman Team.

He played there under Coach Shaka Smart who he was very appreciative for pushing him both in and out of the field to be the best version of himself. Hayes and his impressive performances have helped him to build the confidence to take his career to the next level.

He would officially make the decision that he was entering the NBA Draft recently where he is projected to be a lottery pick. He averaged 10.1 points and 5.0 rebounds for the Longhorns and though he had a knee injury, he has recovered from it. Hayes says that this is the perfect time for him to realize his life long dream.
