Oregon Ducks Recruiting: Jaylin Hayward and Shaqquan Aaron


The Oregon Ducks are a school that elite 2015 athlete Jaylin Hayward likes, according to Scout.com. Hayward is one of the top prospects in the state of Florida in the 2015 class, and he stars for the elite high school program Godby in Tallahassee. Hayward currently has three offers in-state offers and five offers in total.


Oregon has showed some interest in Jaylin Hayward, and he has actually camped in Eugene before. He has also taken camp visits to Florida State and Alabama. FSU, Miami, Florida International, Kentucky, and Tennessee have all offered him. Hayward also has interest in two other in-state schools in Florida and USF.

The 5’9″, 170 pound recruit also has interest from Auburn and Alabama and could play cornerback at the collegiate level. A track star, Hayward has extreme speed and has been lighting it up in Godby with some insane numbers and had a terrific Fisher camp showing.

Shaqquan Aaron is a five-star shooting guard from Rainier Beach and is one of the top 25 recruits in the 2014 class. The top prospect in the state of Washington, Aaron will be taking an unofficial visit to the Washington Huskies and is a Seattle-area prospect himself. He already has several major offers, including one from the Oregon Ducks.

Oregon State, Cal, UConn, Colorado, UCLA, Georgetown, Arizona, USC, UNLV, St. John’s, Louisville, San Diego State, Kansas, Arizona State, Stanford, Utah, Washington, Washington State, and Syracuse have all offered Aaron.

That’s an incredibly impressive list of offers, and the 6’8″, 175 pound swingman is well-regarded for his passing and handles. An excellent scorer, Shaqquan Aaron possesses a solid outside shot but does need to work on his strength so that he can play the 3 more effectively to match his height. At this point, the lanky prospect is actually a little bit better at shooting guard. He’s terrific at that position and is one of the top ten prospects in the class at the 2.

Aaron is one of the truly elite prospects in the 2014 class, so this is an excellent opportunity for Lorenzo Romar and the Huskies to make a big impression on the in-area recruit early on.
