Hall pushes back decision time frame

With one offer in hand, defensive end Derek Hall is not overly excited about getting boatloads more. In fact, the three-star rated Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst prospect is very excited about what the in-state school has to offer.
Hall was expected to make an early commitment on the year but has since changed up his philosophy on his decision. The 6-foot-5, 245-pound likes the fact that he hasn't received any pressure from his one offer.
"No, Kansas has been real nice about it and they just tell me how they want me to go there and how they're presenting the positives," Hall said. "I haven't felt pressured. They just say whenever you're ready, we'll be waiting."
The No. 18 rated prospect in the state of Missouri is actually in the process of setting up an official visits and it's not an offered team.
"I think that Missouri is having me for an official visit on Dec. 15, but it's not completely set up yet," Hall said. "They told me to think about that date for a trip. They said they're considering an offer as well since they some open."
His unofficial visit to Kansas for a game this season also is still fresh on his mind.
"We had a good time down there," Hall said about his Kansas visit. "I went down there with some of my teammates and we liked everything we saw."
Hall is listing Northwestern and Boston College as teams that could be offering next. However, things are pointing toward a late decision now.
"I thought I was going to be done with all this by the beginning of the year," Hall said. "I'll just wait it out a little while now and do it towards the end of the season around playoff time."
