As the top prospect in the state of Virginia, Fairfax (Va.) Robinson defensive end/linebacker Olu Hall is getting quite a bit of attention from college coaches. The four-star stud talks about his leaders.
"I would say right now that Virginia Tech has the slight edge because I know a lot of players there," said the 6-foot-4, 220-pounder. "Virginia would be right behind them because I liked the area when I visited earlier this year. I've been to both Virginia and Virginia Tech, but I need to see some other places soon."
Hall, who has more than 20 offers and had 13 tackles for a loss as a junior, is interested in checking out some schools out of state.
"I'd like to visit Tennessee and Penn State because both are big-time programs who can provide me excellent exposure," he said. "I also like that Tennessee is in the SEC. Clemson, Boston College, Wake Forest and Ohio State are also schools I like. Clemson was one of the first schools to offer me, BC is a lot like Penn State in that they put a lot of players in the pros while Ohio State is also a big-time program. My teammate, Clarence Vaughn, is pushing Wake on me a bit, so I'm interested in them too."
Hall hopes to narrow down his list to five schools by mid-season and take all of his official visits before deciding.
"I know I'll take official trips to Virginia Tech and Virginia," he said. "After that, it will probably be one of the other schools I mentioned. They've all offered except for Ohio State."
Hall made 58 tackles as a junior and has been an impact player for Robinson for two years now. He is ranked No. 11 on the Rivals.com Atlantic East 80 and No. 63 overall in the country.
