Va. Lineman Gets First Peek at UNC

Chance Hall, a 2015 prospect, made the nearly three-hour trek to Chapel Hill on Saturday to watch North Carolina roll past Virginia, 45-14.

"[The visit] went good," the Roanoke (Va.) Northside said. "I really didn't get a chance to look around any because we got there late."

Hall's late arrival also prevented the 6-foot-5, 270-pound lineman from spending any time with UNC's coaching staff.

"But I plan on going back down to catch a basketball game and talk with the coaches some," Hall said.

An exact date for Hall's return is yet to be determined. He's reserving any thoughts about UNC until after he's able to fully see the campus and spend significant time with the Tar Heels' coaching staff.

Through phone conversations and other contact, Hall says he's been able to establish a "good" relationship with Walt Bell.

UNC is among a quartet of schools to have offered Hall – Duke, Maryland, Old Dominion, and Virginia round out the remainder of his list.

Hall, who starts both ways for Northside, is receiving looks as both a defensive tackle and offensive tackle. UNC is in the latter category.

"[The position] doesn't matter," Hall said. "As long as I'm playing football, I'm happy."

Prior to offering, Chris Kapilovic, the Tar Heels' offensive line coach, made an evaluation visit to Northside while in the area for UNC's contest with Virginia Tech.

Though he didn't tour the campus or speak to the coaches on Saturday, Hall was able to evaluate UNC's offensive line play.

"I thought they did pretty well for as young as they are," Hall said.

Hall was one of several 2015 Virginians that littered UNC's visiting recruit list on Saturday. Among some of the more prominent names were four-star offensive tackle Matt Burrell and five-star prospects Ricky DeBerry and Tim Settle.

"I'm friends with them and we like to talk to each other when we are there about all of it," Hall said.

In addition to UNC, Hall has visited Ohio State, Old Dominion, Penn State, and Virginia. This weekend, he'll make the much shorter trip to Virginia Tech to watch the Hokies host Maryland. He'll see the Terrapins play yet again the following week – but in College Park – when they play Boston College.

Hall's travels have yet to lead him to establish a leader or construct a group of favorite schools.
