Hall still plans to visit LSU

Midway through his senior season Glenville High offensive tackle Marcus Hall narrowed his college choices to Ohio State, Illinois, LSU and Miami. Now, a fifth team has entered the race, and all five schools will make up his list of official visits.

"I still am looking at those four schools, but Tennessee is also one that I have added," Hall said. "I took an official to Ohio State already, and I have a visit for Illinois set on Jan. 9 and Miami on Jan. 23. I have not planned the dates on the LSU or Tennessee visits yet."


Though the Tigers do not have a set date marked in the five-star tackle’s book, offensive line coach Greg Studrawa has made enough of an impression on Hall that the senior standout is more confident than ever that he needs to see Baton Rouge.


"I really want to see LSU before it is all over, so I am going to get down there," said Hall, who is the country’s ninth ranked player overall in the Scout 300. "I asked coach Stud if I could come down there on Jan. 8, but he didn't want me to. He wants me down when everyone is back in school so that I can get a feel for campus life.


"So, I am going to wait and take the visit later in the month," he added. "Coach Stud knows that I will even switch my other visit dates around to get down there, so it is no problem on that end. I am going to call him after Christmas and let him set me up. He definitely has me pumped to see what LSU is all about."


Though his focus athletically has switched to basketball season, the country's 2nd ranked offensive tackle still took some time out for his recruitment earlier in the month.


"I went and checked out Ohio State again on Dec. 12 for an official," Hall said. "Things were alright. At this point I have seen everything in Columbus that I need to see. Now I just want to get out and see some schools that will be fresh to me."


Before opening up his recruitment once again with his final officials, the 6-foot-5, 293-pound Hall will travel to San Antonio for the U.S. Army All American Game.


"I had a great senior season and performed well at the U.S. Army National Combine, so I got the selection," he said. "It was definitely an honor, and I look forward to getting down there and checking out some of the defensive linemen. I think that I will just kick back, have some fun and rack me up some pancakes."
