"Everything is going good. I am about to graduate soon. I will be graduating on June 7," Hall told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

After several months of intense workouts courtesy of the Clemson coaching staff, Hall said he feels like he's in a good position for early playing at Clemson.

"My workouts are going good," he said. "It is definitely a big transition from what I'm used to. I am getting into week 13 and 14 so the workouts are getting easier. During the season I was at about 185 pushing 190. I am all the way up to 194 now. I am trying to maintain that."

Like most of the 2008 class, the three-star safety will be reporting to Clemson later this month.

"Yeah I will be heading up to Clemson on the 29th," he said. "I will be rooming with Carlton Lewis, Xavier Brewer and Spencer Adams. Spencer and I have been talking a little bit on Facebook."

What is the Florida native looking forward to the most about getting to Clemson?

"I am just ready to compete. I want to work hard and make a good first impression. First impressions are important so I look forward to the chance to make a good one," replied Hall.

It will be the first time the prize recruit has left home for an extended period of time. Not surprisingly, he admitted he is somewhat anxious about the experience.

"I can't lie. I am a little nervous, but also excited," he said. "It is the first time I am going to be away from home. I'm sure once I get there I will adapt. I'm sure everyone goes through that when they leave home. I am really excited also."

The St. Augustine standout not only excelled on the field, but also in the classroom.

"I graduated with a 3.4. I was proud that I was able to maintain all of that through this," he added.

As a senior, Hall recorded eight interceptions, including three defensive touchdowns during his senior year at St. Augustine.

He also led St. John's County in receiving with over 800 yards and eight more scores, including catching nine passes for 169 yards and a touchdown in the Class 3A State Championship game.

For his efforts, he was ranked as the No. 60 safety in the country according to Scout.com.

Hall was recruited to Clemson by wide receivers coach Dabo Swinney.
