Recruiting Status: Gall landed an offer from the Hurricanes during the spring, took a visit soon after, and made a commitment to the Hurricanes in June. He chose the Canes over BCS offers from West Virginia, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, North Carolina, Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana, Duke, and Cincinnati. He remains solidly committed to the Canes.

What he's saying about Miami: "I would say overall the fact they are really strong academically and they have a great tradition in football. But I just felt really comfortable here with all the coaches and felt I could go to them if I needed help and they would have my back. I also liked the overall feel of the campus and lifestyle the guys live. Miami is kind of my style and a place I want to be. So I just felt really great about being down here and just felt different here than any other college I've been to."

Miami angle: Gall has the size to play right tackle at the college level and could end up playing there or he could end up being a guard. He's a tough, strong, well-coached player who comes from one of the premier prep programs in the state of Ohio. It's a great school to begin getting players from. The Hurricanes would probably like to sign four offensive linemen in this year's class and getting Gall takes care of one of those spots. He wasn't offered by the top programs in the Midwest (Ohio State, Notre Dame, Michigan, Wisconsin, etc) but had several offers so he was recruited like a three-star player. He's a solid prospect from one of the top prep programs in his entire region and he helps fill a need for the Hurricanes along the offensive line.
