After only 1 year playing for Shaka Smart, Hayes should hear his name called during the lottery on draft night. He has the size and skill set of a current day big man and is quick enough to keep up with the pace of play. His knowledge of the game has plenty of room to grow and his fundamentals need work, but he is the type of project most coaches would be happy to have.
