Marcus Hall is one of the top players

We have exclusive video of Cleveland Glenville offensive lineman Marcus Hall committing to Ohio State. Hall,
Ohio State’s commitment No. 26, selected the Buckeyes over scholarship
offers from Miami, Tennessee and Michigan among many others.

Here is video from today’s announcement ceremony at Cleveland Glenville High School for offensive lineman Marcus Hall.

Here is an interview that Gary Housteau conducted with Hall:


Cleveland (Ohio) Glenville offensive lineman Marcus Hall has committed to Ohio State over scholarship offers from Miami, Tennessee, Michigan, LSU, Illinois and many other schools across the country.

“It’s been a long recruiting process,” Hall said.  “I enjoyed it.  I want to thank all the schools that recruited me.  I have decided to go to Ohio State.  I really like Ohio State a lot.  I’m looking forward to helping coach (Jim) Tressel not just win a Big Ten title, but also win a national championship.”

Hall made official visits to Ohio State, Michigan, Miami and Tennessee before telling Bucknuts.com moments ago that he will play his college football for The Ohio State University. 

“I’m glad (recruiting) is over, but like a lot of people have told me, I’ll never get this back again,” Hall said.  “It’s a blessing to me and I’ve been praying every day that it continues.” 

The 6-foot-6 and 300-pound Hall is the top offensive line prospect in the state of Ohio.  He joins Jack Mewhort from Toledo St. John’s, Corey Linsley from Youngstown Boardman and Sam Longo from Bellbrook in this OSU recruiting class, and gives the Buckeyes a clean sweep of the top four offensive linemen in their home state.

Hall is a tenacious blocker who will likely play offensive tackle for the Bucks.  He brings an aggressive style and nasty attitude on the field to Ohio State.

Hall has been a three-year starter at offensive tackle for Glenville coach Ted Ginn Sr.  He is an outstanding run blocker who dominates his opponents.  Hall helped lead the Tarblooders to an undefeated regular season as a senior before a playoff loss to eventual state champion Cleveland St. Ignatius.

“Coach (Jim) Bollman said offensive tackle (for the Buckeyes), but wherever they need me, I’ll even play center,” Hall said.  “Coach Bollman said I can definitely earn a spot in the rotation (next season).”

Hall will join a number of former Tarblooders at Ohio State including defensive back Jermale Hines, offensive lineman Bryant Browning, defensive lineman Rob Rose, wide receiver Ray Small and fullback Jermil Martin. 

With Hall in the fold the Buckeyes have 26 verbal commitments and are waiting word from just one other prospect, Under Armour All-American wide receiver Marlon Brown. 

Brown has narrowed his choices down to Ohio State, Georgia, Tennessee and Ole Miss.  He will announce his decision on national signing day on ESPNU.
