One Three Thing to Know About Justice

Hayes's role in Doug Nussmeier's offense is a bit clouded as we arrive at fall camp. Lately, Coach Hoke has statedthat they'll move Hayes to slot receiver, but the official roster still lists him with the running backs. Hayes was one of the most sought-after running back recruits in the country, and he got lost in the fold somewhat with Michigan's depth at that position. De'Veon Smith, Drake Johnson, Derrick Green and now Ty Isaac are all in the rotation as the season approaches, but Hayes might find more playing time splitting the role of a flexible wideout with Dennis Norfleet. As is usually the case with Michigan's skill players and their anointment as the guy at his respective position, we'll just have to wait and see what transpires during the non conference portion of the schedule.
