Dale attended a camp at Oklahoma for his first stop and impressed the Sooner coaches with the fastest forty time of any athlete; 4.40. His next stop came in his hometown of Ft. Worth when he attended TCU's camp and ran another impressive time in the forty with a 4.42.
Next up for Dale came the Texas Tech camp where again he had one of the faster forty times in attendance with a 4.43. Dale impressed the Red Raider coaches enough to receive his first offer. After recording 116 tackles in 2011 from his safety position, Dale says that's where Tech sees him at the next level.
"It felt great, especially to get my first offer after my sophomore year, it's really unheard of, especially at my school," Dale said. "I'll probably be the first division one athlete coming out of there since we're a brand new high school. It was great and an amazing feeling, my coaches and family were really happy."
Aside from Texas Tech, TCU and OU, Dale is receiving a steady flow of interest including new schools entering the picture from the SEC.
"I've been getting some interest from Florida, Missouri, LSU and Alabama," he said. "Those are some top schools, especially in the SEC which is a great conference. I've also been hearing from North Texas, I'm going to their camp on the 27th."
Dale attended TCU's camp on June 8th and will be making a return appearance this Friday with hopes of impressing the Frog coaches.
"I'll for sure be at their camp on Friday," Dale said. "I've caught up with the recruiting coordinator, they keep in contact but there isn't an offer or anything, it's just solid interest. They want to see how I'm going to do my junior year and see if I progress as a player."
Although the prospects of an offer haven't been discussed, Dale hopes he eventually earns an offer from the Frogs since they're one of his favorite schools.
"I'm hoping they do (offer), TCU is a really good school, I'd love to go there," he said.
