The next Jeannette star?

Athlete Jordan Hall turned a lot of heads during his junior season at Jeannette, Pennsylvania. Two in-state schools are heavily pursuing him, but Hall says he does not have any favorites.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound athlete from the Class of 2009 claims offers from Pitt and Penn State, but other schools are sure to get involved.

"I've got (offers from) Pitt and Penn State," Hall said. "But I don't have a clue where I want to go yet. Michigan has been talking about offering. Most people are recruiting me to play running back or slot."

Hall said he models his game as a running back after former Detroit Lions star Barry Sanders.

He said he's hoping to hear more from Ohio State, West Virginia and Virginia.

"I'm just looking to be comfortable wherever I'm at," he said. "I want to be cool with the coaches."

"I mean, it depends. If (a school he visits) is good then I could go there."

Hall plans to visit Penn State during their spring practices.
