One day a Pony, another day a Cowboy. That’s the story for Irving, Texas, offensive tackle Chris Hall. The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Texas top-100 talent was committed to SMU for early in the recruiting process, but started looking around and the Mustangs pulled his scholarship offer. That opening led him to look at other schools and he found the perfect fit on Wednesday.
"I committed to Oklahoma State yesterday," Hall said.
"My mom and I went up there to Stillwater. You know, I've been there before, and I really liked it and I went up there again and it felt even more right. I wasn't planning on committing when I went up there, but that second trip really let me know that it was the right thing to do so I went ahead and committed."
So what was it about Stillwater that won him over?
"Stillwater is just awesome,” he said. “It's got a country feel to it and everybody is just devoted to Oklahoma State football. I just really connected with the coaches and it just felt right."
Hall, ranked as the No. 67 player in Texas, can play a number of different positions on the line.
"They said really I can play tackle, guard, or center, but primarily they're looking at me for a guard or tackle," Hall said.
