Four-star weakside defensive end Olu Hall from Fairfax (Va.) Robinson is finally getting in on the recruiting action and has his first three official visits in place. Two other schools have dibs on the remaining slots, and they are in the process of setting dates.
Hall will visit Virginia Tech on Dec. 12, Ohio State on Jan. 9, and Purdue on Jan. 16. He also plans to visit Virginia, and NC State wants him in on Jan. 23, but he is scheduled to take the SAT that day.
While on the visits, what will Olu be looking for?
“How many people they have lined up at my position and how many they are recruiting at my position,” he began. “I am also looking for the best engineering program. I want the best coaches and players too, because those are the guys I will be living with for the next four years.”
Coach Al Golden from UVA will be Hall’s first in-home visit and will be in tomorrow. He is also scheduled to have Coach Gary Emanuel from Purdue in Sunday.
Coming in on the prestigious Rivals100 list at No. 66, Olu is also rated the No. 6 weakside defensive end in the country by Rivals.com. At 6-foot-5 and 220 pounds, he runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds.
Robinson ended its season 11-1 after a disappointing loss in the regional finals. Although unsure of his overall stats, he went out with a bang, and according to his coach, played one of his best games of the season.
Hall currently has a 3.2 GPA and has already scored a 940 on the SAT, so qualifying should not be a problem.
