'The visit went extremely well'

Marque Hall returned from a visit to UNC that went "extremely well" according to Forest Hills coach John Lowery, and the Tar Heel staff remains in contact with Hall as he heads to Tennessee this weekend and Virginia Tech the following week.

"Marque said the visit went extremely well in Chapel Hill, extremely well," Lowery said. "I know he is going to take all of his visits before he decides. He has Tennessee this weekend and Virginia Tech the weekend after that."

Hall, one of the premier high school linemen in the nation, has been barraged of late with calls and visits from the schools that remain on his list of potential destinations.

"The amount of people calling and visiting him has been just amazing. There always seems to be a school or a publication contacting him," Lowery told IC via a phone interview Tuesday.

While the constant contact is a negative side effect of being one of the most highly coveted recruits in the state, official visits are an undeniable positive, and it is clear that Hall intends to take full advantage of them. The schools that have already had Hall on campus are trying to stay fresh in his mind, however, UNC included.

"Carolina will actually have coaches in here in about 15 minutes," Lowery said.

With signing day looming, does Marque have a favorite he is willing to name?

"He's not ready to put someone in the lead yet, or at least he didn't tell me anything about a school being in front. I'm sure there is a leader in his mind, but he's being very careful to keep all of his options open," Lowery said.

This recruiting battle seems poised to go down to the wire as signing day rapidly approaches.
