Robinson (Fairfax, VA) defensive end/outside linebacker prospect Olu Hall begins his fourth official visit today, as he will travel to NC State. He has never visited NC State, and is looking forward to his lone trip to a school south of the state of Virginia.
“Yeah I’m excited about it,” Hall said of his visit to NC State. “I was thinking I wanted to go to a Southern school earlier, so they are the school I’m going to visit. I’ve never been there before.”
Hall finishes his run of official visits next weekend when he travels to the University of Virginia. Last weekend, the 6-4, 220 pound prospect visited Purdue. He came away impressed with the academics as well as the players and coaches.
“Purdue was really nice,” Hall said. “The people there were just really nice. The Engineering department was really impressive. Everything about the visit was good. I like the coaches and I like the players. It was different, but I liked it a lot.”
The Boilermakers remain at the top of Hall’s list along with Virginia Tech, Ohio State, NC State, and Virginia. Right now, Hall has a tough time determining any differences among his favorites.
“All of the schools are on the same level right now,” Hall said. “My first three visits have really been similar. I’ve felt comfortable at each, like I was at home. All of the schools are similar, and that’s why it’s going to be hard to make my decision.”
One issue that could end up being a factor is location, however Hall does not feel that is an issue at this point.
“Location doesn’t really matter to me,” Hall said. “Especially after the Purdue visit, because I felt at home there too. So it’s not going to be a big factor.”
With less than two weeks until Signing Day, Hall expects to have four in-home visits with Head Coaches next week. UVA Head Coach Al Groh has already made his in-home with Hall, who said the visit went well.
“Al Groh was in Tuesday,” Hall said. “It was pretty much the same as the previous in-home visits, he just went more in detail with where he was looking at me to play. He was showing me about playing outside linebacker and he was telling me that I would be a key part of their program. They emphasized to me that I would be a big part of their program.”
Hall said most of the remaining schools would like to schedule in-home visits for next Wednesday. None have been scheduled at this...
