Robinson (Fairfax, VA) linebacker/defensive end Olu Hall was very, very impressed on his official visit to Virginia Tech this weekend.
“I had a blast,” Hall said. “It was awesome. I don’t know what to say, I just had a great time. I can’t wait to take the rest of my visits.”
Following the experience, Olu says he will “probably use this visit to compare the rest.” The highlights of the weekend included getting to know the players as well as having lunch in the press box.
“The highlight was hanging with the guys,” Hall said. “None of them were stuck up at all. When I went to Wake Forest earlier this year, it was such a brotherhood down there. It was the same thing here. I based a lot on that.
“I also had a chance to talk to the coaches. We ate lunch in the press box, and they flashed our pictures up on the scoreboard, followed by our personal information and position. They also had jerseys with our names on them. That was cool.”
In addition, Hall was impressed in speaking with academic personnel at Virginia Tech.
“I learned a lot about the academics there, and I think they are what I’m looking for,” Hall said. “The coaches said majoring in Engineering would be very demanding, but they have tutors that can help me out.”
During the visit, it appears the state’s top prospect thought about verbally committing to Virginia Tech. He did not commit, however, and plans on making the rest of his official visits.
“I was seriously thinking about it,” Hall said of committing. “But I had to hold off. The coaches were hyping me up, but they were just doing their job. I’m going to take the rest of my visits so I can compare all of the schools.”
Olu’s next official visit will come in January, when he goes to Ohio State on the 9th. He will also make trips to Purdue, NC State, and he finishes up with Virginia on the 30th.
Olu is being recruited to play defensive end by Virginia Tech. If he chose the Hokies, he believes he will have an easier time learning the defense.
“My coach, Coach [Mark} Bendorf, uses a lot of things from Virginia Tech’s defense,” Hall said. “If I went there I think I could pick up the defense quicker.”
