Hall Has An Early Favorite

Interest continues to pick up for Kenny Hall, and the most recent school to jump in the mix is a storied ACC program.

Derrick Favors is clearly the best prospect in the state of Georgia, but there's still plenty of talent to go around in the talent-filled state. Among the better junior big men in the state, and even in the country, is Kenny Hall.

The 6-foot-8, 215-pound power forward is having a solid season with averages of 20 points and 10 rebounds. Despite his impressive numbers, Hall admitted that the year has been up and down.

"It's been a roller coaster," Hall said. "It's been up and down, but for me personally I've been doing good the whole season, but team wise it's been up and down."

Although his high school team has been inconsistent, one constant at Stone Mountain (Ga.) Redan has been the college coaches coming in to check out Hall. There have been a number of schools in recently including Duke, Tennessee and Alabama.

Hall is also getting strong interest from Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Kentucky, LSU and USC. As far as visits go, Hall has seen four campuses – Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and Tennessee. He's also planning to take a few trips in the near future.

"I'm supposed to be going to Duke sometime next month," the four star prospect said. "Then I'm supposed to be going to Florida sometime next month too."

Duke and Florida will get a chance to show Hall what they are about and those visits will likely be compared to his trip to Tennessee, as they are at the top of his list.

"I'm liking Tennessee, but I'm looking to go one some more visits before I narrow it down," Hall said. "I just like their coaching staff and I like their style of play. When I went out there I went to a football game and I really enjoyed myself when I was out there."

Hall is ranked No. 10 at the center position and No. 62 in Scout.com's 2009 rankings.
