Favorite Schools: He has no offers as of yet, although he is hearing from Texas A&M, Alabama, Georgia Tech, Notre Dame, Wisconsin, Oklahoma, Texas and others.
At this time Texas A&M is recruiting the hardest and would also have to be considered the top favorite, though Alabama and Notre Dame are running close seconds.
If he could choose his visits today, he would go to:
Texas A&M: "Because it's in Texas, the atmosphere is great, the twelvth man and I really liked position coast Weddel."
Alabama: "Their tradition of great football and the head coach."
Notre Dame: "They have a tradition for big time football."

Georgia Tech: "I met Chan Galey and some other coaches when they came to our high school, and they were real good guys. I also have family in the Atlanta area."
Quotes and Comments: "I would really like to stay in Texas, but where I feel the most at home is where I'll go."
"My family would like me to stay close, so that they can attend the games," Hall said. "I want to go where football is the number one sport and backed by most of the state."
"I attended camp at Texas last year and will probably make A&M and Alabama this summer."
The family are big Texas Longhorn fans, though they attended a junior orientation at Texas A&M and liked it a lot.
He wants to be a football coach, so he's probably going to major in sports management.
His goals for next year are to win the state championship and make first team All-State.
When asked about his toughest opposing player, he named Euless Trinity High's offensive lineman Ofa Mohetau.
He benches 280 pounds, squats 475 pounds, has a vertical leap of 30 inches, a school grade point average of 3.4 cumulative, and will possibly take the ACT in March.
