Chris Hall Commits! managing editor
Posted Jun 21, 2010

Virginia Tech added Dinwiddie (Va.) High's Chris Hall to its 2011 recruiting class, but not as a quarterback. The Hokies recruited Hall to play tight end, and that is what he will do. Hall is the fifth member of the class, and the third player to join in the last week. He joines Christian Reeves and Adeboye Aromire as players to pledge to coach Frank Beamer in the last seven days.

Virginia Tech landed a quarterback for the 2011 class.

Well, sort of.

Dinwiddie (Va.) High quarterback Chris Hall committed to Virginia Tech on Monday morning, but he will play tight end for the Hokies, according to his coach, Billy Mills.

“It happened about an hour ago,” Mills said. “He’s a great player. He’s a tremendous athlete, got great size, 6-foot-5, 230 (pounds). He could put on more weight. He’s big in the weight room. He works his butt off, and he’s a great kid.

“He’s the type of kid every coach wants on his team.”

Hall played tight end and running back for Dinwiddie as a sophomore, but played quarterback last season.

He has an offer from Marshall as a quarterback, and Virginia told him he would have an opportunity to try quarterback if he came there.

However, Hall grew up desiring to play for the Hokies, and they wanted him as a tight end.

“They told him that all along,” Mills said. “It’s always been his dream to play there. He decided to go this way. He was a tight end/running back for me as a sophomore, so he decided to go that route.”

Mills said Hall was currently involved in a team workout, but would call back so Hall could give his comments on the commitment.
