Hasley talked through his commitment and decision making process with Pittsburgh Sports Now.
“I went down for a visit on Thursday, and as soon as I stepped foot on campus, I knew this was a place that I could call home,” Hasley told PSN, “and just throughout the day meeting with all the coaches and the players, you could really feel the atmosphere that this could be the place for me. It’s like a brotherhood down there between the coaches and the players. They all care about each other. They all have goals to get to each and every year, so that’s one things, and then the academics, it’s one of the best in the country, so you’re gonna get a prestigious degree out of it. For me, academics is key, so that is one thing I looked into while I decided to commit.”
In 2020, Hasley recorded 60 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, two sacks, and a fumble recovery. He earned a WPIAL Class 5A Northeast All-Conference selection at linebacker and helped the Rams to their second state championship in four years.
Hasley promoted his work ethic when talking about how he will make an impact at Duke.
“(There’s been) a lot of adversity these past few months, and I can tell you that I worked my tail off. I’m a hard-working guy and I come from a winning program so whenever I get to the next level, onto the Duke program, I know that I can bring that winning mentality to the program and I think that’s what they like about me. I’m a winner. I hate losing more than I do winning.”
Hasley’s other FBS offers included Navy, Army, Air Force, and Kent State.
