Hawes played center at Seattle Prep, an elite college-prep school in Seattle, WA. The team won the state championship for the 2005–2006 season and Hawes was named the tournament MVP. He might have entered the 2006 NBA Draft had the NBA not enacted a new rule requiring players to wait a year after their class graduates from high school.
