Oklahoma State fans wondering what impact a coaching change has in recruiting, look no further than standout Irving offensive lineman Chris Hall. The 6-5, 280-pound tackle prospect was one of the Cowboys most enthusiastic verbal pledges. He is still committed, but went through a recruiting feeding frenzy in the days after the coaching change at Oklahoma State.
"It's been very hectic," said Hall of the calls that came moments after the news leaked out that Les Miles was leaving OSU for LSU and Mike Gundy would be the new head coach. "It's a nice problem to have to know that many schools are interested in you. I'm still committed to Oklahoma State. Stillwater is a great place and I've heard great things about Mike Gundy. But while I'm committed I'm taking a few steps back. I'm going to visit Texas Tech and Arkansas just to look around and make sure I'm going to be in the right place for the next four or five years."
Hall said the calls began almost immediately. He has talked with Mike Gundy and Joe DeForest came to see him last week. He added that he is anxious to talk to Oklahoma State's new offensive line coach Joe Wickline. He also added that he was not interested when he heard from LSU.
"OSU is a great place, I just need to take a fresh look at things and be sure," concluded Hall.
His visits will be to Texas Tech (1/14) and Arkansas (1/22). He has already visited Oklahoma State.
