Hall Looking in New Directions
Texas speedster Derrick Hall, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound athlete from Central Senior High in Beaumont, Texas racked up offers from schools like LSU, Oklahoma State, Alabama, Notre Dame, Oklahoma and Arkansas before selecting Texas A&M, but now he is re-considering his commitment. "Texas A&M is losing all of their coaches, so I am keeping all of my options open right now," Hall informed. Any program would be lucky to land a player like Hall who is a real threat to score any time that he touches the ball. In addition to being a great football player he is also a standout on the track. He reports a personal best of 10.33 in the 100-meter dash and finished third in the state with a long jump of 24-feet, 3-inches. Hall reports that he wants to take all of his official visits, but as of right now Missouri, Texas A&M, Oklahoma State and LSU are the four schools on his wish list, but he has only one visit scheduled. "I am definitely looking at Missouri and I am taking an official visit there on December 8th," Hall explained. "I am real anxious to see what the "Show Me State" is all about and meet all of the players." "Mizzou has a great quarterback that looks like he is going to be coming back for one more year and a great young player in Jeremy Maclin. It is a young team that is going in the right direction." "I want to take all of my visits," Hall continued. "I want to visit LSU and Oklahoma State. Oklahoma State has young team as well and they are real exciting. LSU has a powerhouse program and they offered me around the same time as A&M." Hall is not ready to completely take Texas A&M off of his list, but does admit that he has had the opportunity to see what the campus is all about, so he may not take an official visit. "They have great facilities and they make you feel like family," Hall said. "I have been through there a lot, so I do not think I will take another visit."
