Lagonza Hayward schedules commitment date, finalists include Tennessee Football

Four-star safety 2025 Lagonza Hayward (Lyons, Ga.) has the Tennessee Volunteers as a finalist and will be off the board later this summer.

Toombs County High School Safety Lagonza Hayward has been a big draw for Power-4 coaches this offseason. The Tennessee Volunteers were seen as his leader for some time, but a recent official visit with the Georgia Bulldogs could have changed that.

Regardless, Hayward has officially set a date when he can choose between his top schools. He confirmed with On3 that he will commit on August 7, 2024.

Hayward spoke with Dawgs Daily Brooks Austin during Austin’s spring recruiting tour and told us about the state of play at its top schools. Hayward will officially visit Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and USC in the coming months before deciding where to play his college football. Although his world has changed quickly, he has not forgotten how his recruitment began. “Last year I had one offer this time,” Hayward explained to Austin. “Talking to multiple schools made me feel more energized, like I could do this. I’ll decide by talking to all the coaches and picking their brains, knowing what they know and their character.”
