Harvey Hale Slashes list, and Names a Leader

Five schools are in the mix for Harvey Hale, a combo guard from Rio Grande High School in New Mexico.

Not many seventeen year olds can boast a 4.0 GPA and the ability to play basketball for a top D-1 program, but Harvey Hale an athletic guard from New Mexico can. Hale has put together quite an impressive summer averaging 28 points a game in Vegas and playing well at both the NBA and ABCD camps.

The 6-foot-3 guard listed Wake Forest, Georgia Tech, Arkansas, DePaul, and Oklahoma. When asked if anyone had an edge Hale replied, "Wake Forest because of their commitment, the time Skip Prosser puts in watching me every game, and the relationship I've grown with him."

Hale can play both guard positions and is an athletic defender with long arms and a knack for scoring. "I'm a scorer my offensive game is pretty good. I'm going to play hard, I'm going to play D, and not many people score on me. I'm going to put in 15 or 20 every night."

When asked of the biggest factor in picking the right school Hale replied, "Relationship with the coaching staff, it's probably the biggest factor I'm looking at, when you get good relationships good things happen and everything comes to place.

As he prepares for college ball Hale says he is working on, "Coming to the lane and dunking on people!" He continues to work on his strength and believes that if he gets stronger that the rest of his game will fall into place.

Hale has recieved offers from all five schools and plans to visit each. He hopes to have a decision by November.
