Four visits down, only one to go for Robinson (Fairfax, VA) standout defensive end/outside linebacker prospect Olu Hall . Hall will go to UVa this weekend, and may not have too much time to make his decision following his final official visit.
“I think it’s going to be Monday at 2:30 pm,” Hall said. This is when will announce his decision at Robinson High School. “I’m going to have to be up all night long trying to think about it. I try to think about it as I go along, but I always get so excited that I hardly have time to do it.”
This past weekend, Hall visited NC State. He came away impressed with the relationship among all of the players.
“It went really good,” Hall said of his NC State visit. “I thought the other schools were like a brotherhood, but NC State really had one going on. All the players there were cool, and they all made me feel like I was already part of the team.
“Academically, they give you a lot of help, which is good. I spoke with Coach Amato as well, and he was saying they only return one starter on the defensive line. They don’t guarantee playing time for anyone, but I like that you have to be ready to play as a true freshman for them.”
Though his visit to NC State went very well, Hall could not say where it ranked with the rest. He has already taken officials to Virginia Tech, Ohio State, and Purdue.
“I don’t even know,” Hall said when asked to compare visits. “They were pretty much all the same. After my last visit, I’ll have to sit down and really think hard about this decision.”
Heading into this weekend’s trip, Hall indicated he is anxious to see how the UVa players interract. He has been to UVa several times previously, but has never had a chance to really talk with the players.
“This weekend, I’m looking forward to seeing what type of atmosphere Virginia has among the players,” Hall said. “I already know about their academics. I’m looking forward to seeing how the players are. You’re going to be spending a long time with some of these players, so you don’t want to go somewhere where they don’t like you.”
One major factor in Hall’s decision will be academics.
“Academically, I want to see how high each school is rated, but I also want to see what kind of academic support each school offers,” Hall said. “That part is going to be a big factor. I’ll go over everything about each program.”
Currently, Hall holds a 2.7...
