Cal is the other Pac Ten school that has offered and the Bears have a slight lead over USC and Texas at this point. Other schools DeSean is interested in include Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Florida State, UCLA, and Nebraska.

He carries a 2.8 core GPA and is taking his SAT in June. DeSean would like to major in Communications or Radio/TV Broadcasting.
