One of the state of Virginia’s best players is finally getting his chance to shine in a summer camp. On July 30th, Robinson (Fairfax, VA) defensive end/linebacker Olu Hall will head to Purdue to participate in a one day camp.
“I’m going to the Purdue camp on July 30th,” said Hall. “It’s only a one day camp. I didn’t go to any camps this summer and I felt like I may have missed out. I just wanted to go to one camp.”
Many schools, including the Boilermakers, are very interested in Hall. He has received official scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, Virginia, Boston College, Syracuse, Clemson, Tennessee, Penn State, and Ohio State, among others.
At 6-4, 220 pounds, he has the athletic ability to play outside linebacker and is strong enough to play defensive end. Originally 210 pounds at the beginning of the summer, Hall has worked hard to add 10 pounds of muscle and hopes to add more before the start of his senior season.
“I’ve been eating a lot more and working out to increase my weight,” said Hall. “I’m up to 220 pounds right now, and I’m happy with that.”
Hall has also been busy in the classroom. He has worked hard to improve his academics throughout this year, and now feels very confident about qualifying under NCAA eligibility standards.
“I had to finish strong last semester, and I did,” said Hall enthusiastically. “I re-took a freshman course this summer as well, and did really well. It’s helped me a lot towards qualifying.”
With weight training and focusing on academics at the top of his priority list, Hall has had little time to think about which college he would like to attend. He has only been to Virginia and Virginia Tech. No schools currently stand out as favorites.
“I want to focus on football this fall before recruiting,” said Hall. “If there are any schools I’ve been thinking about a lot, it would probably be the in-state schools,” said Hall. “Those are the only schools I’ve been too. I do not have any favorites though.”
Hall wants to take official visits following his senior season. He does not know which schools he will visit.
