DeSoto, Texas safety Corey Hall is impressing coaches in both football and basketball with his skills in both sports. As the football evaluation period draws closer, the interest from the gridiron is picking up.
“Football is picking up some now,” the 5-foot-11, 190-pound Hall said. “I’m getting a lot of mail. There have been handwritten letters from Notre Dame, Iowa State, Texas, Oklahoma and Texas A&M. I got a letter from Kansas State last week inviting me to their junior day in April.”
Hall has skills to play at the Division I-A level in both sports, but does not have a real favorite right now.
“I think I wouldn’t mind playing both sports, but I’m not set on doing that,” he said. “I am looking at both and I will try and figure out which is the best place for me and which sport that would be, too.”
In basketball, Hall is receiving interest from Wichita State, Marquette, Stanford and some smaller level schools.
“I don’t even know where some of the smaller ones are,” he said. “I like what the basketball schools have to say right now, but it is basketball season too. I don’t have any offers in either sport, so I’m not being influenced by that at all.”
As a junior, Hall recorded 84 tackles, nine passes broken up, five forced fumbles and four fumble recoveries.
