From an 11/6/02 interview:
Vince Hall, the All-American linebacker from Western Branch High School in Chesapeake, Virginia, visited Virginia Tech unofficially last weekend for the game versus Pittsburgh. He has had good experiences on unofficial visits to Blacksburg before, and this experience was no different.
“The visit went fine,” said Hall, who spent some time with current Hokie commitment Tripp Carroll. “You know, I’ve been there before, but this time I got a chance to walk down with the team [before the game]. I liked that.”
Despite the loss to Pitt, Hall expressed how impressed he was with the Hokies. In fact, he was able to find out something about them he didn’t know before.
“I was mad at the loss, until I saw the way that they handled it,” said Hall. “They knew they should have won the game, but they also knew that they have to get ready for next week.”
Hall has set up an official visit to Virginia Tech for the weekend of November 30. Clemson, Penn State, North Carolina, and Tennessee round out his top five schools, although he doesn’t know if or when he will visit the other four.
“I’m trying to call the coaches to set up some other officials,” said Hall. “But with my schedule and their schedule, it can be tough.
“I might not take all my visits. If I know on an official that [a certain school] is the place I want to go, then I’ll go ahead and commit.”
Hall has led Western Branch to a 9-0 record for this season, and looks to continue the success in the Division 6 playoffs. They play Deep Creek this weekend.
