Announcement Day for Hall

Daeshon Hall, Four-star DE

Among a final three of Washington, Texas A&M and TCU, the nation's sixth-ranked defensive end Daeshon Hall will announce his college commitment and sign his letter of intent Wednesday in a 9:30 a.m. CST ceremony held at Lancaster (Tx) High School.

Daeshon Hall, a 6-foot-6, 220-pound Seattle, Wash. native, made the move to Lancaster, Texas his junior year with his younger brother, his mother, and her new job opportunity. It was last summer that he made the move back to Washington, to his former high school Garfield for senior year, before ultimately winding back up at Lancaster in August, days before school started.

"I wanted to finish up in Texas, it's good football all over," he explained upon his return. "It wanted to be back with my boys, finishing what we started."

Hall was once committed to the University of Texas, before opening things back up June 28, only to become part of Washington football history on June 29, a day that nabbed eight verbal commitments to the Huskies.

It was upon making an official visit to Washington State with teammate and then-commit Demarcus Ayers in October that Hall became a soft verbal to UW.

Hall later made his official visit to UW the weekend of Nov. 9, before putting recruitment on the backburner as he and his Lancaster Tigers made their program-best 14-1 run into the Texas 4A-Division II state championship, where (regardless of a 17-7 loss to Cedar Park) Hall was named the defensive MVP with a sack and three tackles for losses.

TCU and Texas A&M upped their efforts and made stronger pushes for the defensive end in the second half of the season. It led to Hall wanting to "see what they're about," making an official visit to TCU Jan. 11, followed by A&M Jan. 18.

Walking away "surprised" by both, "loving the two more than he thought he would", it posed a difficult decision.

Does he stick with Huskies and return to his family and origins in Seattle? Or does he stay close to mom in the Lone Star?
