Hayes started all 13 games for the Fighting Irish in 2017, notching 27 tackles, 4 quarterback hurries and a sack. He wasn’t a star, but was a steady cog on the Notre Dame defense who will be missed.
The former 4-star recruit is eligible to play for the Sooners immediately. It will be interesting to see what he can do in a conference with several high-powered offenses.
