Gall on the verge of offers

One of the top junior offensive linemen in Ohio is Cincinnati (Ohio) Moeller product Alex Gall. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound prospect is on the radar of just about every major program in the Midwest and could be on the verge of some big offers in the near future.
"Ohio State, Michigan, Wisconsin, Kentucky, Virginia, Michigan State, Purdue, Notre Dame, there's a lot of schools showing interest," said Gall. "No offers yet but I think I'm getting close."
Recently, Gall has been out and about checking out some of the schools that are recruiting him the hardest.
"I just went to the OSU game a couple of weeks ago (for the Akron game) and I was at Kentucky (for the Louisville game)," he said.
Gall's trip to Columbus was his first chance to take in an Ohio State game and he came away impressed by his experience.
"Ohio State was good," he explained. "It was a good game and I got to experience the stadium at Ohio State, I'd never been to a game there. I talked to coach (Jim) Bollman and coach (John) Peterson and a couple of the academic advisors. The coaches just said that they are interested in me and to keep up the good work and that they are keeping an eye out for me."
On the field, Gall and his Moeller squad are flat out rolling at 7-0 and have many around Ohio talking about them as a possible favorite for the state championship. Gall wasn't ready to go quite that far, but he has been encouraged by the play of his team to this point.
"We're having a good season," he said. "We've had some slip ups but we've come away with the win and I think that if we just keep improving week by week and everybody stays healthy that we'll be able to take this team where we want to go."
Gall has found himself matched up against some top notch defensive ends throughout the season, most notably La Salle senior Ryan Leahy and Pickerington Central junior Taco Charlton. Gall has held his own in both battles and enjoys playing against top competition on a weekly basis.
"It kind of lets me know what level I'm at and what I need to get to and how I need to improve my game," he said. "It lets me adjust between games when I face the speed guys and then the power guys, you have to be able to handle both."
Gall added that the biggest things he's working on right now are keeping his feet moving and driving and finishing his blocks.
