The Alabama Crimson Tide came out to the Golden State and plucked pure California gold when linebacker/fullback Prince Hall (6-1, 242, 4.55) from Moreno Valley, Calif., decided to cast his lot with the Tide.
Hall is a baller. The Crimson Tide land a player who racked up 152 tackles in 10 games as a junior. He was selected first-team all-CIF, all-county, and all-league for his stellar junior season performance.
For his career Hall has approximately 350 tackles. He has played on the varsity level since his freshman season and even won a starting after the third game of his freshman season.
On the offensive side of the ball, Hall rushed for 896 yards on only 96 carries for an average of 9.3 per carry while scoring 13 touchdowns.
The amazing thing about Hall’s offensive stats is he did as a part time back that only played 50% of the time on offense. He will get more snaps on the offensive side of the ball in 2004.
“My Mom encouraged me to make an early decision,” Hall said. “We chose Alabama because we know it's a good school.”
“Getting a good education is important to me,” Hall said. “I also like Alabama's rich football tradition.”
“I know Alabama has good coaches and I feel I will get the chance to play early there,” Hall said. “I also think the program is going in the right direction.”
In an earlier interview with Moreno Valley coach Ted Wadkins he said this about his talented linebacker, “Prince is legit. He’s pretty special.”
“I should know since I’ve had to coach against him,” Wadkins said. “There’s a reason Prince is getting offers from coast-to-coast.”
Hall is very solid to Alabama and he told Rivals.com that he will only take one visit and that will be to the Tide campus.
“I'm looking forward to the challenge of playing in the SEC,” Hall said. “Tell Alabama fans, I'm coming.”
Hall chose Alabama over other offers from Oklahoma, Kansas State, Arizona, Arizona State, Washington, Oregon and Oregon State.
Great get for the Alabama Crimson Tide.
