LITHONIA – Arabia Mountain picked up a pair of commits over the past few days with the latest coming from defensive back Glenn Hayes.

Hayes is a rising senior with the Rams and compiled 34 total tackles in his junior campaign. Arabia Mountain has been on a rise throughout the past few years finishing with a 10-3 record for each of the past two seasons. Hayes announced his commitment through his personal Twitter account.

Hayes said that he chose Kent State because of the program.

“I picked my college because of the program and many players from around the area went there,” Hayes said. “A player from my school is an upcoming senior there and we had a one-on-one conversation. The coaches are caring and a great group of individuals.”

With Arabia’s season opener coming up on Aug. 17 against Carver High Hayes says that he expects the season to be great.

“I expect this season to be great,” Hayes said. “I expect for me and my team to compete and grow as one but I’m trying to improve my game. I have a great defensive back coach in Derrick Collins who pushes me to be great. I expect to be a leading tackler again playing in both the safety and corner position.”
