Desean Hales, WR, 5-10, 165, KLEIN (OAK), TEXAS:

JH: What was your impression of your trip to College Station for A&M's Junior Day?

DH: "It was a nice atmosphere up there and I enjoyed myself. I got to talk to the wide receiver coach and Coach Fran."

JH: How excited are you about A&M now that you've visited their campus?

DH: "They are on my list. I felt comfortable up there and it was a fun time to be up there. We got to watch the basketball team and got to do all kinds of good things. I didn't expect to have such a good time."

JH: What did you learn about the offense at Texas A&M and how you might fit in?

DH: "They said they had a lot of success with the short passing game. They felt they needed to get some deep threats and I know they told me they had recruited a couple of guys who ran 10.4 in the 100 meters. They said they felt that I could take it the distance too. I felt they had my style of offense."

JH: Now that you have been to Texas A&M and a couple of other schools, what are your thoughts on recruiting and on Oklahoma?

DH: "I haven't been to Oklahoma yet. I am going up there this weekend. I have been to LSU and Texas. Recruiting has definitely picked up for me a lot. I am just trying to take it all in. I am trying to be smart with the decisions that I have to make. Overall, it has been fun and I am really enjoying this right now."

JH: Are you excited about Junior Day at Oklahoma this weekend?

DH: "Yeah, I am excited about going up there and I am looking forward to seeing what they have to offer. I am looking forward to meeting the coaches. I want to see how I will fit in up there. I have a great interest in Oklahoma and they are another school that is high on my list. I want to see how I fit in up there."

JH: Who are your top schools right now?

DH: "If I had to pick a top five right now it would probably be Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech, Texas A&M and LSU."
