Lineman To Visit Tigers

This big lineman from the Peach State who earlier committed to another college says he plans to visit Auburn.

Chatsworth, Ga.--Offensive linemen that are big enough to block even the strongest defender and agile enough to take on today's faster defensive ends are not easy to find. Perhaps that's the reason that 6-6, 270-pound John Hall from Murray County High is such a hot commodity.

With schools all over the South hoping to lure the former quarterback to their school, Hall says that he's committed to Lou Holtz and the South Carolina Gamecocks but that won't stop him from looking at other schools in the coming weeks leading up to Signing Day on February 6.

"I'm going to visit South Carolina on the 11th, Auburn on the 18th and Georgia on the 1st (February)," Hall tells Inside The Auburn Tigers. While Auburn and Georgia are still in the picture, this definitely looks like it will end with Hall signing with the Gamecocks.

"I really like the way the program is going right now," he notes. "I also like the atmosphere up there and the coaching staff."

While acknowledging that it will be tough for anyone to beat South Carolina in the end, Hall says that Auburn had been recruiting him for a long time and the Tigers are still in the picture.

"When I went up there it looks like they have good fan support," Hall says. "They also have a good program going and that interests me."

Being recruited by all three schools as an offensive tackle, Hall also played defense for Murray County and was impressive enough to get looks on that side of the ball as well. In the end offense is where his future lies and it will likely be a very impressive future indeed.
