The Louisville football program has added some much needed depth on the defensive side of the ball for the debut season of the Scott Satterfield era.
Jody Demling of CardinalAuthority.com confirms that former University of Arizona safety Isaiah Hayes will finish his career at Louisville and is expected to arrive on campus this week.
Hayes will be eligible immediately as a grad-transfer with two years remaining. The Calabasas, California, native appeared in 16 games in his time in Tucson, totaling 58 tackles, 2.5 for a loss, a sack, and a forced fumble. Multiple injuries impacted Hayes’ Arizona career.
Louisville appeared to be in good shape with Hayes who sent a vague Tweet in April that made it look like he would become a Cardinal, but apparently he had to take care of his academic situation before he could officially join the program.
He is the son of former NFL player Chris Hayes who spent nine years with the Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and New England Patriots.<
