2009 Intro: Ferrakohn Hall

After a productive summer, Ferrakohn Hall is reaping the rewards. The Memphis (Tenn.) White Station product has a trio of scholarship offers and interest from schools across the country.

There aren't many 2009 prospects that traveled mored than Ferrakohn Hall this past summer. The 6-foot-7, 200-pound forward participated in nearly every event including LeBron James Skills Academy and the USA Festival.

"[My summer] was productive," Hall said. "Getting to go to all those camps helped my games a lot and I got to play against a lot of the top players in the country."

Since the circuit came to an end in late July, Hall has heard from Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, Florida State, Miami, Georgetown, Illinois, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Memphis and Tennessee.

"A lot more schools came after [July]. Just about every school in the country is recruiting me now except for North Carolina and Duke."

The Memphis (Tenn.) White Station standout is starting to pick up scholarship offers as well. To date Memphis, Tennessee and Mississippi have put offers on the table. The Vols even got him up for a football game recently.

"It was fun," he said about the visit to Tennessee. "I went with Leslie [McDonald] and Johnnie Williams and there were more guys there. It was fun. We got to play and go see the football game."

Despite being from Memphis, Hall hasn't taken an unofficial visit to Memphis. He has, however, played pick up ball with the team.

"I've been up to the school a few times to play, but I haven't actually visited the campus. But being from here I've been to the football games and that stuff."

Although a lot of prospects are making decisions early on during the high school careers, Hall, who is ranked No. 71 overall in the 2009 class, doesn't plan on committing anytime soon.

"I think I'm going to wait it out. Right now I'm definitely neutral. I'm in the process of going to some more places. I know I'm going to go to a couple of more schools, especially during the football season, but I'm not sure when."
