Vince Hall, the standout linebacker from Chesapeake (Va.) Western Branch, has recently amended his top five list and also indicated that he will probably take an official visit to one of his favorites at the end of the season.
"I'm probably going to visit North Carolina sometime in December," said the 6-foot-1, 230 pound linebacker. "They have a really nice campus and they need linebackers that can come in and play right away. I feel like I could do that. UNC and Virginia Tech are probably recruiting me harder than anyone else. I'm visiting Tennessee unofficially on Nov. 9 to see them play Miami, so I'm excited about the atmosphere at that game."
Hall has led his Western Branch team to a 7-0 start. In addition to averaging double digits in tackles, Hall has also caught two touchdown passes as a tight end. College schools are looking at him as an inside linebacker because of his tenacity and his 40-yard dash time of 4.6 seconds. So has anything changed in Hall's mind recently?
"I'm not looking at Maryland anymore," Hall announced. "Clemson is now in my top five with North Carolina, Virginia Tech, Tennessee, and Penn State. Maryland is a good school but they aren't the right fit for me right now."
Hall is having a great senior season.
"Our team is undefeated right now and I'm playing with more confidence than I ever have before. I feel like I can disrupt just about any play on defense and I feel like I'm making an important contribution on offense once in a while. I've got a lot of great players around me and it should be fun to play out the rest of the season. After I take my official visits when the season is over I should be ready to make a decision. For now I'm good just saying that I have a top five."
