AUSTIN, Texas _ As a high school football player, Oklahoma-born Jaxson Hayes had a slight problem that was only getting bigger: He was getting taller. A growth spurt shot him up to about 6-foot-7. Basketball beckoned. From a 6-foot, 125-pound freshman, to a 6-10, 200-pound senior, Hayes has made an extraordinary leap from a player who barely got on the court to an elite-level prospect courted by some of the top college programs in the country. Hayes landed at Texas, where his early play has twice earned Big 12 newcomer of the week honors. And he’s still growing, having now reached 6-11. Texas plays Saturday against Grand Canyon.
