Earlier today, Lee County (Sanford, N.C.) defensive line prospect Joey Hall learned that Virginia Tech would indeed be offering him a scholarship. As expected, it didn’t take the 6-3, 260-pound prospect very long to accept the offer. Only hours ago, Hall became the 20th player to commit to Tech’s 2006 recruiting class.
“I got the offer this morning,” Hall said. Tech is his childhood favorite. “I knew I was going to find out today or tomorrow. My phone rang this morning while I was in class and it was my coach. I knew why he was calling. I knew as soon as my coach said my name that it was good news. Then I called the Virginia Tech coaches and committed.”
Hall made an official visit to Virginia Tech on the weekend of January 20th and came away extremely impressed with the program. Following the trip, he stated that he would accept a Virginia Tech offer if one came his way.
The Tech coaches are recruiting Hall as a defensive tackle.
“I’ll play wherever they want me to, but I’m pretty sure it’s going to be defensive tackle,” Hall said. “I think they like that I have really quick hands. They also like that I just want to play. I’ll do what it takes and I never quit.”
As a senior, Hall racked up 75 tackles including 10 tackles-for-loss and 10 sacks. He was 3-time defensive player of the week. Academically, Hall says he has already met the necessary standards to qualify.
