Getting to know Nick Haynes

Nick Haynes
Offensive Guard

6’4″, 294 lbs.
Niceville, Florida

Rivals: 5.6, #40 OG
ESPN: 3-star
247: 81

Strengths: Space blocking, physicality, athleticism


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.”

Welcome to the fam, Nick.

    Redshirt him. We need to start redshirting lineman as much as possible. One more year to develop physically and mentally.

    I assume there is good reason, maybe it’s the fact that we have 3 QBs with experience, and another QB recruited. But could someone explain why we haven’t offered Asiantii Woulard a scholarship?

    The project players Stoops is in on are even a few notches above the ones we’ve always gotten. Instead of guys that have grow into their bodies, and are acedemically question marks, that take 2 or 3 years to ever see the field? Stoops is getting players who mainly need refining.
