Haynes, who chose the Cats over Central Florida and Florida Atlantic, is an offensive guard who used to play tight end and is known for his athleticism. Haynes has only been playing football for two years, but his size and potential drew interest from Florida State and UCLA. There’s talk that Haynes may redshirt his freshman season, but with the lack of depth on the offensive line right now, the staff may choose to bring him in right away. Neal Brown visited him a week ago and Haynes liked what he said so much that he took an official visit to Lexington this weekend.
Haynes on UK:
“The coaches were great. It’s a traditional college town. The fans are awesome. They’re all about Kentucky sports and Kentucky football. It’s in the SEC, and there’s not much you can complain about.”
