Irving, Texas offensive lineman Chris Hall had committed to SMU during his sophomore year, but he has recently decided it was time to change that pledge.
“I recently de-committed from SMU,” 6-foot-5, 285-pound Hall said. “It’s a great place over there. They’re doing a lot of great things. I don’t have a single bad thing to say about the school, the program or anything. I just didn’t feel like that is the place for me.”
Hall has several other schools interested in him already at this point.
“I am looking at Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, Florida and Iowa,” he said. “Those are my top four right now. Those four have offered already.
“I have some that haven’t offered that I would like to like, Kansas State, Texas and Arkansas. I think Kansas State probably will offer soon, but I’m not sure about Texas and Arkansas.”
Hall has some familiarity with the three that haven’t offered.
“I’ve been down to Texas and looked at their place. It’s all nice. The coaches were nice and the facilities were first class. Arkansas is a school I have followed and watched and gotten a lot of mail from. Kansas State’s offensive line coach, Bob Stanley, was my high school offensive line coach early on. He’s now up there and I’ve talked with him. I think now that I have de-committed, I will probably get an offer.”
Hall isn’t locking himself into a time frame for a decision.
“I’m not going to set a date for a decision. I’m going to play it by ear and go from there. I want to visit the schools I am interested in and make an informed decision. I’m going to be there for four or five years, so I want to make sure it’s the right place for me.”
