COLLEGE STATION, Texas – During the opening day of the Texas State 7 on 7 Tournament, one of the favorites in the event was Hitchcock High School. However, the Bulldogs got upended in the first elimination round by Rice Consolidated and a big reason why was the play of 2010 wide receiver Mario Hull.
At 6-foo-1, 175 pounds, Hull showed great ball skills, hands and fluid athleticism. With big plays on both sides of the ball, he proved to be a major asset to his squad.
"I played wide receiver and safety last season," Hull said. "We made it to the semifinals."
So far this summer, Hull has attended a few camps and has maintained a busy schedule with AAU basketball, workouts and 7-on-7.
"I've been doing a lot of camps and just playing football," he said. "I went to Baylor, Air it Out and Texas State. Our basketball team is pretty good. We're going to nationals on the 22nd. With 7-on-7 practice and those practices it wears you out."
Only a junior, Hull's recruitment has yet to kick into full gear, but when it does, there is one school that he will be keeping a close eye on.
"I like LSU," he said. "I always liked them and my cousin goes there. I really just want to go somewhere and play football."
