Paging college coaches looking for an impact junior college running back: The nation’s top junior college running back, Andre Hall, of Garden City (Kan.) Community College is wide open and now taking a long look at anybody that’s interested in him.
“I was pretty high on Kansas State, but they’re not calling me anymore,” Hall, who is 5-foot-10 and 205 pounds, said. “And I was excited about Arkansas, but they’re also moved on to a high school running back. My dream school was Oklahoma, but I know they’re going to get Adrian Peterson, so there goes that dream.
“So right now, I don’t know what’s going on. I’m all wide open. Whoever calls, I’m going to be interested in.”
A few teams that have shown considerable interest, despite the other teams backing away, are Oklahoma State, South Florida, Nebraska and Kansas. He’s already visited Oklahoma State and is going to visit South Florida this weekend.
“I was supposed to visit Nebraska last weekend for the K-State game, but we had some last minute travel problems,” Hall said. “I watched the game on TV. It was ugly. I think they could really use a guy like me that could come in and run the ball.”
South Florida’s visit this weekend also excites Hall.
“I’m going to get home and visit my famiy,” Hall said. “It’s an official visit that’s going to kind of turn out to be a vacation for me. I’ve been to South Florida a million times, so I know they have a good setup.”
