One of the fastest rising prospects in the western region is four-star athlete prospect Adam Hall (6-4, 205, 4.5) from Tucson (Ariz.) Palo Verde. He was a smashing success at the recent USC Rising Stars Camp where he picked up the always coveted USC offer.
In addition to the Trojans, Hall has offers from the likes of Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington State, Colorado, Boise State, Idaho, Nevada, UNLV, Wyoming and others.
Schools such as Texas Tech, Norte Dame, Northwestern, UCLA and Washington are showing recruiting interest.

It isn't surprising that this outstanding athlete from the Grand Canyon State is getting such prestigious recruiting attention. He has the skill level to make an impact on the D-I level as a wide receiver, defensive back and punt returner.
As a matter of fact, Hall could be the most lethal punt returner in the nation. He returned six punts for touchdowns with a long of 98 yards. He would have had 10 punt return scores, but four were called back.
On the offensive side of the ball, Hall had 30 receptions for 630 yards and scored eight receiving touchdowns. He rushed the pigskin for 300 more yards and two rushing touchdowns.
As a defensive back, the talented Hall, racked up 109 tackles, had five picks, which three were returned for touchdowns, four forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.
This human highlight film earned first-team all-region, first-team all-city, first-team all-area and first-team all-state as a junior.
If Hall's accomplishments on the gridiron weren't impressive enough this stellar athlete is also getting recruiting attention for his skills in track and basketball.
In hoops, Cal and Colorado are sending recruiting information, but Hall at this time is all about football. In track, both Arizona and Arizona State are showing interest.
The events that Hall competes in are the 110 hurdles (14.4), the high jump (6-5), the triple jump (48.0), the long jump (22.8) and the 400 (49.9).
With so many schools clamoring for his services does Hall have any favorites.
"I really like Arizona, Arizona State, Oregon and USC, but schools that I haven't talked to a lot and would like to hear more from are Ohio State, UCLA, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech," Hall said. "Actually, there are a lot of schools that I'm interested in."
What is Hall looking for in a college?
"Team camaraderie," Hall said. "And how the coaches relate to their players."
Does Hall have a preference for what side of the ball he plays on?
"I don't have a preference what side I end up playing on," Hall said. "I have offers for both sides of ball. I just want to go to school where I can grow as a person and a player, while helping my team."
Does Hall have a timeframe for when he will commit?
"I'm not sure when I'll commit," Hall said. "If I get the feeling before the season starts, then I'll go ahead and commit. If not, then I'll wait it out until the time is right."
Hall could take two more unofficial visits this summer. For sure he will be heading to UNLV next week and perhaps Oregon later in the summer.
