Hale Staying Busy

Joel Hale, a 6-5, 295-pound defensive tackle from Greenwood (IN) Center Grove, has plenty of options.

"We don't have spring ball," Joel Hale said. "I have been throwing the shot and discus in track, still doing my football workouts and working out for Olympic weightlifting competition. Florida, Ohio State, Boston College, Michigan, Michigan State, Notre Dame and Penn State have all been in and it went great."

Hale was able to visit the University of Florida recently and had this to say about his potential home.

"Loved the campus, coaches and most definitely The Swamp."

Hale has offers from Indiana, Purdue, Cincinnati, Toledo, Iowa State, Wisconsin, Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Florida, Louisville, Boston College, Duke, Illinois, Georgia Tech, Penn State and Kentucky.

"I am getting a lot of attention from Indiana, Ohio State and I am getting a lot of emails from Urban Meyer. I pretty much get a handwritten, a least once a week from all my offers."
