Mike Hall: Waiting For an Offer

Michael Hall has just about everything a coach looks for in a player---size, attitude, and grades. He made the short trip to Georgia Tech this week along with his mom for an unofficial visit. The 6-9 1/ 2, 195 pound big man and rising senior at Woodward Academy in Atlanta was making a return trip to the Tech campus.

Hall'sprevious trip to Georgia Tech was with his teammates when they participated in the Georgia Tech team camp. Mike had a chance to renew acquaintances with the Georgia Tech staff on the return visit. "My mom and I spent time with the coaching staff including Coach (Brian) Gregory. It was her first visit there and they showed her a video of me." The Tech coaches also talked to Mike and his mom about the work being done on their basketball facility. "It was a good visit."

The Tech coaches reinforced what they had told him in previous conversations. "They said they want me there at Georgia Tech. Coach Gregory said he wants to see my play and will be in Augusta in July for the Peach State Nike AAU Tournament."

Georgia Tech has yet to offer Hall but he knows where an offer will put them on his favorites list. "An offer would put them in my top five along with Harvard, Cal-Berkeley, George Mason, and Virginia Tech."

As is the case with most recruits of his caliber, Hall has a busy summer planned. "I am going up for unofficial visits to George Mason and Georgetown in a few days. I'm not sure If I'll spend any time with the coaches. I'm not sure what the rules are."

Following his unofficial visits, Hall will be heading west. "I will be in Las Vegas for a Nike event in a few weeks."
