Mount Spokane (Wa.) High graduate Hayden Dressel, who is the younger brother of John Dressel, an All-American at the University of Colorado who finished 14th, second, and sixth at Foot Locker Nationals as a prep in Washington, announced Wednesday his commitment to the University of Arkansas.
Hayden is one of the late signees in the Class of 2017. He holds PRs of 4:15.08 for the mile, 9:26.06 for the two-mile and 15:04.50 for 5K in XC. This past spring he was the 1600m champion at the Washington State Meet 3A in 4:15.94 and the 3200m runner-up in 9:26.06 behind junior James Mwaura, who ran 9:11.10.
Hayden will be a great addition to an already solid 2017 class at Arkansas, which includes (men's and women's) names like Ashton Endsley, Joy Ripslinger, Lauren Gregory and Hunter Woodhall and several other international talents on the guys.
