The latest with Chris Hall

Early enrollment is just weeks away and one prospect not heard from recently is tight end Chris Hall. Since leaving Fork Union due to injury a lot has gone on for the 6-foot-4, 230-pounder, Hokiehaven.com finds out the latest.

"He's not going to qualify for Virginia Tech," Dinwiddie head coach Billy Mills said. "He's definitely not going to Virginia Tech.

"The situation was that he had one class last semester and slipped. I guess he thought he'd coast through and it got just a little messed up. He was unable to complete that class and he's out. Everything happened pretty quick."

Mills has no doubt Hall will find a spot somewhere though.

"He's going to land on his feet," he said. "He's a great kid and has never been in trouble. He's just paying the consequences for not getting it done.

"He's taking classes now and if he completes his class he'll be fine. There are some I-AA schools interested. He'll probably go to Marshall though, he only had three offers before he committed.

"I know Richmond is looking at him a lot as a quarterback. He just wants to go to school. I think he could even end up on the defensive side somewhere."

According to Mills if Hall can get the class done, he may be able to enroll in January at one of the other options on the board.

"He's very close and he got a letter grade up in one of is classes and took the SAT again. He's in the process of getting that done. He'll be fine."

On the field, Hall left Fork Union early due to an injury just after his arrival. How's he doing there?

"He's fine," he said. "He had a little scope done and cleaned it out. They figured it was an old injury and it's cleaned up 100%. He's ready to roll."
