A 28-7 Westfield victory over Robinson last Saturday ended the high school career of one of the state’s top collegiate prospects in LB/DE Olu Hall . But with his season complete, he can now look towards deciding where he will play the next four years of his football career.
“Now I’m going to take some official visits,” Hall said. He finished his season with close to 100 tackles and 12 sacks. “I have some in-home visits scheduled this week too. Ohio State comes in tomorrow and [Virginia] Coach [Al] Golden comes on Friday. The in-home visits are cool, but they more for my family to get to know the coaches.”
The 6-4, 220 pound Hall has set two official visits thus far and hopes to set all five within the next few weeks.
“I’ve set two visits, to Ohio State and Virginia Tech,” Hall said. “I don’t have specific dates because I need to check with my basketball coach first. I have three left to set, and I’m considering UVA, Tennessee, Wake Forest, and NC State. I might want to visit some out-of-state schools that I’ve never seen before. I’m not sure. I’m looking to the South for some official visits, but not too far from my family.”
Hall admitted there was a possibility he would not make an official visit to Virginia, but also admitted he has been to Charlottesville on many occasions throughout the past year. There is a good possibility he still may visit the Cavaliers, however he is unsure at this point.
“I’m thinking about UVA, but at the same time, I’ve been there so much already that I really know it well,” Hall said. “I can’t even count how many times I’ve been there. I have a friend up there that I go visit a lot. I’ve only been to Virginia Tech once. I haven’t seen the Tech campus as much as I’ve seen UVA’s.”
Virginia and Virginia Tech are the current favorites of the Robinson star, who has developed good relationships with coaches from both programs.
“Both Virginia and Virginia Tech are ahead of everyone else,” Hall said. “I like Virginia’s coaches because I feel they really care more than the other schools with the amount of letters they send me per day, which makes me feel like they need me. And I talk with Coach Golden more than anyone else…they are consistent in calling me once a week. At Virginia Tech, the defensive line coach [Charley Wiles] is really cool. Coach Foster also came by my school today. They are all really cool guys.
