Hall looking for Spartan offer

One of the most intriguing prospects in the state of Michigan is Stephon Hall of Detroit Consortium High School. The 6-foot-3, 262-pound prospect was one of the top performers at the Sound Mind/Sound Body Camp that was held in June. Hall will be at Michigan State on Monday to showcase his skills at the Spartan 1-Day Elite Player Camp. Spartanmag.com was able to catch up with hall and get some details on his recruitment.

Hall was flying below the radar of many in the recruiting world, but that all changed when he showed up at the Sound Mind/ Sound Body Camp held at Southfield High School. Hall was easily one of the most impressive prospects of the 600 participants. We asked him how his recruiting is going so far and what teams are showing him the most interest at this point in time.

"It is going great," he said. The reason I say this is because when I was at my old school I did not hear from any schools. Now I am hearing from Michigan State, Toledo, Eastern Michigan, Wayne State and Ball State University Ii have plans on visiting Michigan State on the 11th this month. I am going to visit Toledo when school starts back and I am planning on setting up a date with Ball State too. The other camps I will be attending are Cincinnati and Akron."

Hall was at Detroit Loyola High School last year. Loyola is a small high school that plays in Division 7 in the Michigan Classification System. Hall was a key member of the team, but Loyola is not a school known for producing Division 1 football players. In addition, Hall suffered a foot injury that slowed him down last year. He is now back to 100% and ready to show college coaches his ability.

SpartanMag.com asked Hall what he has been hearing from Michigan State.

"When we talk they tell me to keep working hard and be humble, Hall said. "They have said I will have a chance to earn a scholarship offer at the camp."

Hall is listed at 6-foot-3, 262-pounds in the rivals.com database. That size makes him a player that could project at multiple positions on the defensive line. Hall could play strong-side defensive end or even slide down to defensive tackle if he add more size when he gets to college. The Spartans are still looking to address both the end and tackle positions, so Hall will get a long look from Defensive Line Coach Ted Gill and Defensive Coordinator Pat Narduzzi.

SpartanMag.com asked Hall what an offer from Michigan State would mean.

"If I were to get an offer from Mark Dantonio himself it would be like a dream come true," Hall indicated. "I have been a Spartan fan for the longest time. I can definitely see myself not only a Spartan but a true successful one."

SpartanMag.com will be at the Michigan State Camp on Monday observing the top prospect in attendance. Hall is a player we will be sure to pay particular attention to. We will also be following up with him shortly afterwards to report on the feedback he received from the Spartan coaching staff.
