Oakland Zoo woos Hale

Shayne Hale is making an official visit to Pitt this weekend and if his interaction with the Oakland Zoo is any indication, the Panthers could be close to receiving a verbal commitment from the Gateway All-America linebacker.

Hale was sitting in the front row (behind the basket) at the Pitt-Oklahoma State basketball game with Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt, defensive line coach Greg Gattuso and safety Eric Thatcher. At the 7:27 mark of the first half, Hale joined the Oakland Zoo, where the students were waving signs that read: “Shady+Shayne=BCS.”

Shady would be LeSean McCoy, who the freshman tailback who committed to the Panthers last January after similar treatment from the Zoo during the Pitt-Georgetown basketball game.

Where McCoy confirmed his choice by checking an open box next to his name, Hale might have tipped his hand by donning a gold Oakland Zoo jersey during a timeout at the 3:55 mark.
