R-Fr., Def. End, 6-3, 265
Solid in spring practice, and enters the fall as a likely
DE starter in 4-3 system. Offers team’s best blend of strength
and speed on the DL. Still learning the DE position and largely
untested at the SEC level, yet Haye has potential to become
big-time defensive performer.
