2006 Focus: Shane Hanson

Shane Hanson, a 6-5 junior small forward from Southern California, talks about the early stages of his recruitment...

Shane Hanson, 6-5 JR SF Lake Elsinore (Calif.) Temescal Canyon, is very good shooter with excellent range. We spoke with Hanson yesterday about the schools he's been hearing from to date.

"Stanford, Cal, Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona State, Texas A & M, Miami...those are some of them," said Hanson.

We asked Hanson if he has a preference in terms of location and he said, "I want to stay on the West Coast."

Hanson talked about other factors he'll consider when making his choice. "Playing time will be an issue," said Hanson. "The education will be really important. I want a degree that has some value. That's why I like Stanford."

We asked Hanson if he has a list of schools that he's pretty sure he'll visit and he replied, "Stanford, Arizona State, Oregon, probably Miami and Texas A & M."

Hanson said he'd like to make his decision quickly. "I'd like to get it done early, but I can't take the SAT until March, so I'll probably have to wait until after the test."

Hanson told us he has a GPA in the range of 3.8 to 4.0.
