Myles Dorn isn't the only player from Vance High School that NC State's coaches want to see in red and white one day. They do want to see Dorn run with their Pack but they also want to see one of his younger teammates wear the uniform as well.
NC State's coaches haven't just said the right things to Jeremiah Hall (6-3, 225). They aren't just talking the talk. They're walking the walk or at least as much as coaches can before they can give players written offers.
Hall is a high school junior so written offers are not allowed but the NC State coaches have given Hall his very first verbal offer. He is a player that feels just as positively about NC State as the program's coaches feel about him. He visited for the Pack's matchup with Clemson and even though he had been on campus before this was a new experience for him. It shed some new light on what it would be like to play football in Raleigh and the new perspective has only made Hall like the Pack more.
It was the first football game in Carter-Finley Stadium that Hall had ever been to.
"Being my first time there I liked it a lot. I didn't bring any friends but I did bring both of my parents. My mom loved it especially because it's close to home. My dad loved it too. They both thought it was a positive experience, and they like to go to the games."
Hall's parents will have some input on his decision but he is the one who will make the call. His choice will have to be based more than anything on where he feels most comfortable with the coaches and where he feels most comfortable as a student athlete.
On that front the NC State coaches have an easy sell. Hall knows that he likes it at NC State and he likes that their coaches have recruited him as hard as any others.
"When I was up there I talked to Eddie Faulkner, the position coach for tight ends and also my recruiter. I've been in pretty good contact with him since I visited last time over the summer. He's a good guy. I keep in touch with him over Twitter every now and then.
"What I liked most about the visit was the environment. It was a wonderful environment. They showed us how almost every game is sold out and the fans come out for them. It's what any football player would love."
It was the first college football game Hall has been able to squeeze into his own busy schedule. When school was out for the summer Hall did visit colleges and learn about what they have to offer. Since then he has been close to home and focusing on school and football.
Charlotte is the only other school that has offered Hall meaning NC State remains his only offer from a power conference institution.
