Is Hall Ohio's Top Soph?

Austintown Fitch saw their season come to a close last Saturday in the Ohio playoffs, when they lost to Cleveland St. Ignatius. The future is bright for the Falcons, especially with tailback Darrin Hall returning for 2 more years.

Sophomore tailback Darrin Hall impressed this year for Austintown Fitch, and his improvement was dramatic on a weekly basis. Although his team lost in the first round of the playoffs last week to Cleveland St. Ignatius, Hall has established himself as one of the 2015 prospects in Ohio.

Hall, 6-foot, 185-pounds, is a speedy, long-strider at the tailback spot, and he rushed for over 800-yards and scored 12 touchdowns this season. He alternated carries with two other senior tailbacks throughout the season.

"I think I bring good speed and power to the position, but I have good vision also," Hall stated. "I'm working on getting bigger and stronger, and I need to add more weight to be a better inside runner. I also run track, so that will help with my speed."

College recruiters are just now learning about this exciting sophomore prospect, and he recently picked up his first offer.

"I was offered by Nebraska this week, and I'm very excited about that," he explained. "This is big to me, and Nebraska is a great school. It was a real surprise to me when my coach told me to call Coach (Vince) Marrow, and then when he offered me. I want to get out there for a visit, but I'm not sure when that might happen."

"I want to go to a bunch of college camps next summer," he added. "I might go to Nebraska, Ohio State, Cincinnati and a few others in the Midwest. I'm not really looking to go too far from home for college, so I'm really not interested in schools outside the Big Ten area. I would love to hear from Ohio State, and (teammate and Buckeye commit) Billy Price is supposed to tell them about me."

With a self-reported 3.86 GPA and his obvious athletic skills, Hall is set for success, and a player to watch in Ohio for the class of 2015.
