However, the No. 1 women’s college basketball prospect in the state won’t sign her letter of intent Wednesday on the first day of the basketball early signing period.

Hayes said she plans to sign with the Lady Vols during this period, which lasts until Nov. 16. She said she was unable to work it out signing on Wednesday.

Hayes committed to UT on Sept. 25 after taking an official visit to the school, which has also made offers to her three younger sisters Aislynn, Alasia and Acasia.

According to HoopGurlz and ESPNW Recruiting Rankings, Hayes is the ninth-ranked player in the nation in the 2017 class (No. 1 in Tennessee).
