Three months ago, St. John’s (DC) defensive end Terrell announced he was committing to play football at Ohio State. On Monday afternoon, the 4-star defensive end decided he was decommitting from Ohio State and explore his options.
“I love Ohio State’s atmosphere, but I need to make sure I find the best fit, and that means I have to explore my options,” Hall said in a Bleacher Report article.
At 6-foot-5, 250 pounds, Hall recorded 19 tackles for lost last season. He is the No. 10 weak side defensive end, ranked No. 141 overall and he is the No. 1 prospect in the Washington D.C area. Right after Terrell decommitted, Florida and Oklahoma extended offers. Besides those two schools, Hall has offers from Alabama, Penn State, Maryland, Florida State, Ole Miss, LSU, Georgia, UCLA and many other big time schools.
Alabama is a school that has a real good chance in landing Hall. In 247sports.com Crystal Ball predictions, the Crimson Tide has a 69% chance in getting him. According to Bleacher Report, Terrell believes Alabama will give him the opportunity to show off his athleticism. “I like how Alabama sees me as a 3-4 outside linebacker who can still play some defensive end. It also gives me an opportunity to drop back in pass coverage and show off my athleticism. That versatility is attractive to NFL teams.”
Before making a decision, Terrell wants to visit more schools. Florida, Ole Miss, LSU, Georgia and UCLA are some of the schools Hall is thinking about visiting. Despite the decommitment, Ohio State is not off the board as possible destinations for the rising senior.
