Forest Hills (NC) star line prospect Marque Hall joined many other top players from the state of North Carolina – including Dudley DT DeMario Pressley, Roanoke CB Trimaine Goddard, and Jack Britt RB George Bell – on hand to see Saturday’s ACC contest between FSU and UNC in Chapel Hill.
Despite the 37-0 victory for the Seminoles, Hall says the atmosphere was impressive.
“It was still a good time,” said Hall, who, like the rest of the players, was on an unofficial visit for the game. “The crowd was really into it. It was nice.”
With most of the top prospects in the state on campus at one time, Hall admits there was some talk of all joining forces and heading to UNC.
“Yeah there were some guys talking like that,” said Hall about all of the top guys heading to UNC. “They were just talking though I think. I’m pretty much the same still. I like UNC, NC State, Virginia, Virginia Tech, and Tennessee. I’m going to go with my uncle to visit more games this season, but I don’t know which ones yet. He sort of runs the show for me with the visits.”
Hall’s top five schools all placed phone calls to him yesterday, which was the first day coaches can call prospects. As expected, the mammoth 6-5, 315 pound prospect had many calls on the first day.
“They are killing me,” laughed Hall. “I’ve gotten at least 10-15 calls so far. I had to tell some of them to call me back. The schools I did speak to were UNC, Tennessee, Virginia, Georgia, NC State, Penn State, and Virginia Tech.”
Hall can expect many nights like this for quite some time, as he is one of the most sought after prospects in the country. He is receiving even more attention on the field, where teams have been double and triple teaming him.
“It’s tough because teams are triple teaming me all the time,” said Hall, who’s team is off to a 1-2 start. “You’ve got to keep fighting though. You have to get mad and keep coming, or else you won’t make the play.”
Very talented on offense and defense, colleges are mixed in where they would like Hall to play – some like him as an offensive line prospect and some as a defensive tackle. Hall does not care where he plays, saying he will “play wherever they tell me to play.”
