The recruiting process can be tough for some prospects, but not for Robinson (Fairfax, VA) defensive end Olu Hall . The 6-4, 220 pound prospect loves talking to the coaches and has really enjoyed the past month.

“I’m loving it,” said Hall of the recruiting process. “I like all of the calls. It was getting a little crazy, but it’s going pretty well right now. I’m just taking it all in, and listening to everyone and what they have to say about their school. A lot of schools are calling.”

One thing making the process easier is the fact that Hall will wait to schedule his official visits until after the season. He will concentrate on his senior season and focus on recruiting after it is over.

“Coaches are calling all the time and trying to set up an official visit with me,” said Hall. “They want me to visit during a game atmosphere. I haven’t been able to concentrate on setting any dates, so I’m going to wait until after the season to schedule my official visits.”

Hall has taken one unofficial visit thus far. He went to Wake Forest for the Purdue game, an experience he says went very well. He will take an unofficial visit to Virginia for the Florida State game and hopes to catch a Virginia Tech game as well.

“Wake Forest was cool, and I liked it a lot,” said Hall, who’s teammate Chip Vaughn has committed to the Demon Deacons. “I went down there for the Purdue game. It was a good game. The campus was great. The team treated me like I was one of them. It was pretty good.

“I plan on going to Virginia’s next home game against Florida State, and I will try to make it to a Virginia Tech game.”

At this point, Hall has no favorites. He has received scholarship offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Purdue, Syracuse, Penn State, Clemson, Wake Forest, and Boston College.

Both in-state schools are heavily in the mix right now, and appear to be on equal footing.

“Every team is wide open with me,” said Hall. “I don’t have a favorite. In terms of the in-state schools, I would say they are both equal. I have friends that go to both schools. It would be easier to fit in at Virginia Tech because I have more friends there. UVA is really reaching out to me, and putting a lot of effort into recruiting me. Don’t get me wrong, Coach [Bud] Foster and Coach [Frank] Beamer are real cool. Let’s just say UVA
