One of the most celebrated players out West the past two seasons has been Moreno Valley (Calif.) linebacker Prince Hall. Hall is a two 1st team All-State Underclass selection and has also earned Student Sports Sophomore and Junior All-American honors. The SoCal athlete named his top five with a heavy out of state flavor to it.
Hall, 6-0, 240 pounds had another monster season as a junior totaling 168 tackles on defense while rushing for 887 yards as the teams fullback. At last summer's SoCal Nike Camp, Hall came in a solid 5-11, 243 pounds and clocked a 4.84 in the 40, 4.43 in the shuttle, jumped 30 inches in the vertical and did 12 reps on the bench.
Hall makes a ton of plays at the high school level and despite his size, has the quickness to range from sideline to sideline. it's tough to project just where he'll play at the next level. He could grow out of playing linebacker but may not have the height a lot of schools are looking for to play on the defensive line. That being said, Hall is a just a very talented football player and one of those kids who is good enough to make an impact somewhere on the field.
On the recruiting front, Hall is hearing from schools from all over the country and list Georgia as his top school followed by USC, Oregon, Alabama and Florida State.
"No, we don't have any family or ties to Georgia, Prince just really likes them a lot," Laquida Hall, Prince's mother said. "He has been watching them a lot the last two years and just likes their style of play. We sent them a tape and they have been recruiting Prince very hard ever since. We do have family in Alabama and that's a big reason why they're in his top five. USC is the local school and is playing so well. I'm not sure if anyone has offered yet but we're just going to play things out and see what happens."
