Despite hailing from The Woodlands in Texas, Hazen has plenty of family ties to the Carolinas; his parents me while undergrads at Clemson.
According to Johns, while on a family trip last month, Hazen was able to stop by Wake Forest’s campus — a notable development for the Demon Deacons amid college football’s recruiting dead period.
