Klein (Texas) Oak receiver DeSean Hales certainly has the scholarship offers to be one of the nation's top prospects.
The Rivals100 to watch member for the Class of 2008 has already added a boatload of scholarship offers and with upcoming junior days, he's looking at adding even more.
"Right now, it's Texas Tech, Texas A&M, Nebraska, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma who have offered," Hales said. "This coming weekend, I'm going to LSU's junior day. I've gotten a lot of stuff through the mail from them, but I haven't talked to any of the coaches yet.
"I'm pretty excited about that though."
Hales says that the last junior day visit he took was to Texas A&M. The 5-foot-10, 165-pounder definitely enjoyed both the surroundings and the coaching staff in College Station.
"It was fun," Hales said about the A&M junior day. "I went a couple of weeks ago and I just liked the atmosphere there. When they found out that I planned on taking my time, they were pretty patient with me. They're nice people."
Hales says he's being recruited by Texas A&M coach Jim Bob Helduser. That is also the coach that Hales says his talks with the most.
"That's him, he's the one I call the most," Hales said. "He usually just asks me how things are going and how my track season is going."
For track this year, Hales plans on running as many if not all of the relay events he can. He's also considering the 400 meters.
After the visit to LSU this weekend, does Hales have anything else planned?
"I'm not sure yet," he said. "I've got to see if I get anything else. Everything is looking pretty even with the schools right now. I'm still just looking at my options. I don't know a top three or a top five yet."
