The 6-foot-2 guard is averaging 21 point and 6 assists a game at Rio Grande HS. Hale says he stays in close contact with Wake Forest's staff and talks to Coach Battle often. When asked what they chat about, he said they told him that he's going to be stepping in for Taron Downey next year.
Hale said that he hopes that he will be able to step right in and contribute as freshmen.
"I've told them that I'm ready," Hale said. "And if I keep working hard, good things will happen."
The best player in New Mexico went on to speak about his recruiting class and what he likes about the two fellow '05 commits.
"I played against them at NBA camp," Hale responded. "I liked Weaver's hands and Swinton's athleticism."
