Former Rice Standout Signs With Kentucky State

Frankfort, Ky.—Kentucky State University basketball announced the signing of 6 foot 7 junior forward, Kevin Hayes to its 2017 class on Tuesday morning.

“We’ve been recruiting Kevin for two years and are thrilled about his growth as a student-athlete,” said head coach Jamaal Jackson. “Kevin has already done some excellent things on the basketball court, but he’s only scratched the surface of the player that he will become. Kevin is very lengthy and athletic and will help us at both ends of the floor.  Kevin comes from a great family, and we are ecstatic that he is now a Thorobred.”

Hayes comes to the Capitol City as a transfer from Schoolcraft College where he averaged 11 points and five rebounds per game during the 2016-17 season helping lead them to a Michigan Community College Athletic Conference championship.

Before enrolling at Schoolcraft College, Hayes spent the 2015-16 season at Oakland Community College where he averaged 23 points, eight rebounds, and three assists per game, scoring a career-high 38 points against Wayne County Community College.

During Hayes’ high school career, the Farmington Hills, Michigan native was a two-time first team All-Catholic League member at Brother Rice High School and was voted on to the 2015 Detroit Free Press All-North Team and second team All-Metro.

Hayes will have two years of eligibility at KSU.
