6-10 PJ Hall of Dorman has his hands full this spring. He has his AAU schedule with Upward Stars along with his baseball schedule. And there’s the next stage of recruiting for him, the in-home visits. Those started for him last week with Tennessee’s Rick Barnes. Fresh off his lucrative contract extension from the Vols, Barnes showed up at 12:01 PM Thursday, the first allowable minute, to visit with Hall at his school.
“It went very well,” Hall said. “I Got to talk for around 45 minutes with the Tennessee staff. It was nothing serious, just hanging out having a good time.”
Hall also said USC coach Frank Martin was scheduled to be in to see him and his teammate PG Myles Tate but he had to postpone that visit for another time. Martin and Clemson’s Brad Brownell continue to play a prominent role in Hall’s recruiting.
“They are sitting real well, I like both programs, the coaching staffs, both head coaches,” Hall said. “Frank Martin, Brad Brownell, they are incredible coaches. I hear from both staffs regularly. They’re just checking in, just some small talk, just making sure I know they really care about me.”
Right now Hall said USC, Clemson, Florida, Tennessee, Kansas State and Virginia have been in regular contact. Another school two watch out for with Hall could be Virginia Tech now that Mike young is the head coach. Young, the former Wofford head coach, was an assistant coach with the Terriers when Hall’s father played there and could use his new position in the ACC as an attraction he couldn’t offer while at Wofford. Hall said he’s known Young most of his life.
Hall said he won’t take officials until the summer or later because of his baseball and AAU schedule right now, and he does plan to sign in November.
