Rumor has it that Haile was seen hanging out with German Fernandez, Colby Lowe, and the Ok. St coach Dave Smith in Washington DC. They went sight seeing around the capital including the white house, capitol building and the washington monument. Pictures on his facebook profile confirm the rumors as they show Fernandez and Haile playfully posing in front of the monuments. They seem to be having a good time. So is it just a matter of time before the announcement is made?
It was reported that Haile's final choices were Iona, Northern Arizona, Oklahoma St., and Texas. It looks like Oklahoma St. is the lucky one who will land him.
With Haile on board it looks like Oklahoma st. will be the favorite over Oregon to win NCAA XC next year. a line up of German Fernandez, Solomon Haile, John Kosgei, Colby Lowe, and David Chirchir will be too much for any team to overcome. Any thoughts?
