Jamal Hall, 6-1 SG Pasadena (Calif.) Muir, tells us that he's currently focusing on six schools. UTEP, UC Irvine, Nevada Reno, Sacramento St., St. Mary's and Loyola Marymount are the schools on Hall's list.
Jamal told us that he took an unofficial visit to Loyola recently. "It was nice," Hall said. "Cool campus and nice people."
Jamal told us that he has an unofficial visit to Irvine set up for today and an in-home visit with Sacramento St. scheduled for September 9th. He said that he's in the process of setting up in-homes with the other schools. He won't take any official trips until after he takes the SAT in October.
When asked about the timing of his decision, Jamal said, "I want to visit the schools and see where the best fit is, but I'll sign in November."
Jamal told us that location isn't a real big issue with him. "At first I wanted to stay close to home, but now I'm just looking for the best fit and location doesn't really matter."
