Salazar first expressed interest for Hasay to join his group in late May. On Wednesday afternoon, the Oregon Project made the announcement official by tweeting a photo of Hasay holding her new uniform top with her teammates.

After finishing third at the NCAA Outdoor Championship in the 5,000-meter race in 15:50.78, Hasay told Flotrack site head Ryan Fenton that she was weighing offers and finalizing talks with her family and coaches.
Hasay will join a training group that includes Treniere Moser and Tara Erdmann. Looking back at her success from high school and the early spotlight that comes along with it, she could serve as a mentor to high school phenom Mary Cain, who is also coached by Salazar.
The 10,000-meter run is scheduled for 9:00 p.m. local time on Thursday. Hasay is also entered in the women's 5,000-meter run at 3:32 p.m. on Sunday, June 23.
