HOW ACQUIRED: Selected by FC Dallas with the 18th pick of the 2017 MLS SuperDraft. Originally signed an MLS contract on Jan. 12, 2017.
Boasting a strong first touch and good speed, Hayes could develop into a legitimate box-to-box threat in MLS. He didn't earn much time in his rookie season, but we may have an opportunity to see more of him in his sophomore campaign with Dallas.
COLLEGE: Played four years at Wake Forest, where he locked down a starting spot in his sophomore year. Played a total of 71 games for the Demon Deacons, registering 15 goals and 15 assists in his NCAA career. Named an NSCAA First Team All-American in 2016 as Wake Forest finished as runners-up in the College Cup.
