Marcus Hall is back from his official visit to Michigan and has made some changes. Hall talks about the trip, which school has been eliminated and who his top three in order are.
Cleveland Glenville offensive lineman Marcus Hall was originally scheduled to visit LSU this weekend, but decided to visit Michigan instead. Going into the trip the Wolverines were not among his top two or three choices.
They are now.
“It went real good, real good,” Hall said upon his return from Ann Arbor. “It was real nice. I didn’t know the history of Michigan. The whole visit was better than I thought it would be. I talked to coach (Rich) Rodriguez about a lot of things. He is on his way to changing things.”
While in Ann Arbor, Hall’s player host was former Columbus DeSales Stallion Patrick Omameh.
Hall has made official visits to Michigan and Ohio State.
“Well, I’d have to say there are things I like and dislike (about both),” he said. “For the most part they are two great schools. The rivalry is still present. It could be anytime of the year and people talk about it.”
When asked to name his favorite school, Hall hesitated and said, “Michigan, Ohio State and Miami, maybe in that order. I felt real comfortable at Michigan. There is a lot of opportunities to play early.”
Hall had been scheduled to visit Illinois next weekend, but has taken the Illini off his list.
“Coach (Eric) Wofford, the offensive line coach, left to go to South Carolina,” Hall said. “So I’m not going to visit there. My next visit will be Miami (Jan. 23). Then I still have Tennessee (Jan. 30).
“I’m just going to take four visits.”
The 6-foot-6 and 300-pound Hall is the top prospect in the state of Ohio that has not selected a college. Hall said Buckeye assistants Jim Bollman and Taver Johnson visited him last week. He expects them to be back the week after next. He also expects Rodriguez to make a home visit that week.
