Garden City (Kan.) Community College running back Andre Hall took his second official visit of the year with a trip to new Big East Conference member South Florida.
“I had a great time,” the 5-foot-10, 205-pound Hall said. “South Florida is really close to my home. I was able to see a lot of friends I hadn’t seen since high school. A lot of them are on the team. They showed me around the town again.”
Hall, the nation’s top junior college running back, did not come to a quick decision while on his visit.
“I don’t have a decision, yet. I want to go on the rest of my visits. I need to talk to the other coaches about getting them set up. I am still talking to Oklahoma State, North Carolina, Troy State and Nebraska. I had been hearing from K-State and Kansas some, but it has been a while.”
Hall was able to discuss the South Florida program with Bulls head coach Jim Leavitt.
“Coach Leavitt and I talked for a long time,” Hall said. “He told me they were moving to the Big East and that will let them be on television more. He offered me a scholarship while we were talking. They have three running backs on the team, but two are seniors. The one that is coming back will be a junior. His name is Billy Henderson. He’s a good friend of mine. We have two different styles, though. He’s bigger than I am.”
Despite the good time, Hall does not want to label the Bulls as the favorite.
“I am not really wanting to put a school in the top of a list. I want to take the visits and then do that.”
