Aaron Hayden, father of Arkansas running back commitment Chase Hayden, joined Recruiting Thursday to discuss his son's decision to be a Razorback.
Hayden, 5-11, 185 pounds, 4.47 seconds in the 40-yard dash, of Collierville (Tenn.) St. George's Independent School, chose Arkansas over Oklahoma State, Missouri, Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, Nebraska and others about a week ago.
