Forest Hills (NC) defensive tackle/offensive tackle prospect Marque Hall has set all five official visits. He will make all five trips during the month of January, starting with South Carolina on January 10th. He heads to UNC and NC State on the weekend of January 16th (will make one day visits to each), Tennessee on January 24th, and finishes with Virginia Tech on January 31st.
Hall admits that even though these are the schools he will officially visit, more schools may be in the mix.
“It’s hard to determine if this is my final five,” Hall said. “I’m going to visit these schools but I might also check out some other schools for a basketball game or something, just to see the campus. I’m not sure. Maybe I’ll go to Virginia, and I might try Maryland. We’ll see.”
Hall was recently able to determine which programs he will officially visit. It appears proximity to home was one of the main factors in the selection process.
“Basically, I chose the schools who are closest to me,” Hall said. “These schools also came in and talked to my mom, and she liked them.”
Currently, Marque claims no favorites. He would like to make all five official visits.
“I think I’ll take all five,” Hall said. “I’d say I’m open right now…I’m just ready to get started.”
Hall put on a show last week, creating a buzz during last week’s NC/SC Shrine Bowl. The 6-5, 305 pound prospect played defensive tackle for the NC squad, and made noise throughout the game.
“I think I had about two sacks and a couple of tackles,” Hall said. “I had fun. It was actually easier than I thought it would be. Our line had an easy time getting through and into the backfield. I think I did pretty good. I just went out there and played my game.”
Hall is being recruited by most programs to play defensive tackle, though Virginia and NC State have mentioned offensive tackle as well. With location an issue, I believe Hall may end up staying in-state in the end.
