This spring and summer appears especially important for 6-4, 225-pound junior signal caller Chris Hall , who completed 166 of 330 passes for 2,677 yards with 23 touchdowns and 13 interceptions last season. 2009 was Hall’s first season as Dinwiddie’s (VA) starting quarterback and he showed potential, but he is now anxious to show more on the spring and summer combine/camp circuit.

“I’ve signed up for the Nike Combine in Baltimore and I’m also signing up for the Under Armour Combine at the Carolina Panthers’ stadium on April 18th,” said Hall, who competed in the U.S. Army All-American National Junior Combine in January.

He played running back and wide receiver at Dinwiddie before moving to quarterback last season.

“Virginia wants me to come to camp,” said Hall, who claims interest from Alabama, Georgia Tech, Nebraska and Wake Forest in addition to Virginia and Virginia Tech. “They also told me about spring practices I could see.

“Virginia Tech has told me that there will not be an offer right now. They want to see me come up to one of their camps and workout.”

Hall reflected on this past weekend’s visits.

“The Virginia visit was good,” said Hall, who was accompanied by fellow teammates Corey Marshall and Trey Gardner in Charlottesville Sunday night. “It was real nice. It had a good atmosphere. The coaches were nice. I talked to coach London and he is a truthful, straightforward guy. He said he liked us. He was telling us things about his players and how he expects them to be truthful and act with dignity. I talked to coach Reid and coach Hanson and they said they liked us, too. They told us to keep hitting the books and working hard.”

Of Virginia Tech, he said, “I really liked it. I just got accustomed to being on campus, walking around, talking to some of the football players at Virginia Tech. They talked to us about time management, campus life and things like that. I talked to some academic people. I really liked it. Coach Beamer told me
