Lancaster, Texas defensive end Daeshon Hall burst on the scene in February as the now 6-6, 240-pound defender saw offers roll in from Baylor, Missouri, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, and Washington.
Following the Texas junior day in late February the Texas Longhorns offered and Hall quickly committed. Then he began to have second thoughts and in June he decided it was time to make another decision.
"De-committing was tough, but I thought it was what was best for me to do it at that time," Hall said.
Soon after, Hall, who moved from the Dallas-area to Seattle in the eighth grade, also decided he wanted to play his college ball in the northwest, and committed to the Washington Huskies.
"It's kind of close to my house where all my family is out there and I have a good relationship with coach Lupoi," Hall said.
The standout defensive end describes his commitment to Washington as "solid," but it has not stopped college coaches from pursuing.
"I've been hearing from a whole bunch of teams from down south lately," Hall said. "I've heard from Texas, LSU, Texas A&M…mostly Texas and Louisiana schools."
Currently he does not have any official visits scheduled, but he does have a plan in the works.
"I'm going to take all of my visit," Hall said. "I think I'm going to visit West Virginia, LSU, maybe Texas, Washington, and probably USC."
What is it about those programs that has attracted his interest enough to possibly take an official visit?
"They're just big time programs and I want to see if I made the right choice," Hall said.
