Virginia Beach (Va.) Green Run is home to a pair of prospects for the 2012 recruiting class. Coach Shawn Wilson broke down his group of prospects to watch.
"Virginia, Virginia Tech, Old Dominion, UMass, Delaware, a lot of schools are coming in, he's going to go big-time," Wilson said of 2012 linebacker Mark Hall. "Mark is going to be a big-time player at tight end or outside linebacker. He made first team all-district and had seven touchdowns this year on 16 catches. He got a touchdown on every other catch and we didn't really have a quarterback to get him the ball.
"He's already 6-foot-2, 208-pounds. He's really going to work out during the offseason and once basketball is over he's going to get the weights hard."

Wilson discussed his abilities on the other side of the ball at linebacker.
"He's a pretty good linebacker," he said. "He had a lot of pass breakups. He's very versatile playing middle linebacker, outside linebacker, defensive end and safety. He's good enough as a rusher and in man-to-man. He's just what a college is looking for, either way they are getting a good player.
"He's good at both positions, for the long run he may be a great tight en. He has great hands and is fast for his size, but it depends on the school and how he fits into the scheme."
Hall isn't the only player getting a look for Green Run in 2012, joining him is 6-foot-3, 220-pound defensive end Kemaree Alcorn.
"He started at defensive tackle for us and after the second game he was leading the team in tackles from that spot, it was impressive," he said. "He's a quick get off and run down the screen guy. He can rush the passer and stop the run. He just needs to concentrate on the weight room once basketball is over. He's very fast and he needs to get his upper and lower body strength up. At the next level, I think he'll end up being a defensive end."
