Haynes Inks with JUCO

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Few accomplished more than
normal'>Randy Haynes did in his time in a Potomac Panthers uniform.
style=> The Class of 2014 talent helped lead the
Panthers to an 86-18 record in his time there, capped with the school's first
state title in 19 years as they simply dominated competition.
style=> In their 28-1 season, Potomac won 23 of those
games by double-figures.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Now the multi-faceted 6-foot-4 Haynes moves on to the next
level. He will be heading west to play
for Coach James Miller at
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>New Mexico Junior College, a program
that has successfully mined the state of Virginia for recruits in recent years.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>"We return all of our 4's and 5's who already have a
high level of interest already, and to add Randy into the mix is huge for us
because we don't have a lot of scoring back from last year's team.
style=> I feel like he's going to be a great fit with
us the next two years. He's a quality
kid, athletic and still has a lot of room to develop his game, but obviously we're
real excited to have him join us," Miller told

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>"I already think he's a good player, but can see him
becoming a big-time player down the road.
He's only scratched the surface in some areas of how good he can
become. You don't come halfway across
the country if you're not serious about your future, so I believe he'll have
the right work ethic and hopefully like the rest of the Virginia guys we've had
will be a guy that can blossom."

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Twice named Player of the Year in the district or
conference, Haynes led the State Champion Panthers in scoring at 17.5 points
per game, giving him 491 points on the campaign.
style=> In addition to being selected All-Region
First Team in 5A-North, he was named co-VHSCA State Player of the Year and
All-State by, the VHSCA and VHSL.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>In his senior season with the perennial contender from
Dumfries, Haynes made 187-of-375 field goals (49.9%) and 92-of-146 at the foul
line (63%). His impact was felt in other
categories, too. He averaged 5.2
rebounds, 2.7 assists, 3.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per game.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>"Randy's a lot more unselfish than people give him
credit for. He's a kid that can go off
for 30 on any given night, but he realized we had a 6-foot-10 kid down there in
Trey Porter (George Mason signee),
and willingly gave up the basketball," remarked Potomac Head Basketball Coach
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Keith Honore.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>"He passes the ball extremely well.
style=> You put him on any other team and he averages
22-23 points per game easily. When it's
all said and done, two years from now I wouldn't be surprised to see Randy in
the ACC, Big East or Atlantic 10. He's
got that type of potential and loves playing basketball."

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>Haynes becomes the fifth player from Virginia for the
Thunderbirds, who finished 27-7 overall this past season.
style=> Others that have latched on in the past with
the JUCO program include ex-Norcom guard
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'>Devin Patterson (now at Nebraska-Omaha),
former Booker T. Washington standouts Desmond
Lee (now at NC State),
normal'>Lorelle 'Smoke' Waters,
and Norview product Rashaun
style='mso-bidi-font-weight:normal'> Madison.

"Verdana","sans-serif"'>"That Virginia area has been a goldmine for us and I
love the kids out there," stated Miller.
"Even though Randy is from a different area specifically than some of
the other guys, I saw a lot of the same qualities in him that they possess."
