"Oklahoma has been part of our discussions tonight, but outside of that I don't want to say anything else. Until we have the press conference I really don't want to say anything else, especially until I talk to the coaches." national basketball recruiting analyst Dave Telep also reported Monday evening that Hairston will inform all but two of his six finalists on Tuesday that they are out of the race, and then announce between the two finalists at his press conference on Wednesday.
