UPDATE (April 20, 2020): Four-star wide receiver Agiye Hall committed to the University of Alabama over the weekend, he announced on his Instagram account. Hall marks Alabama’s third commit in the 2021 class and is the highest-rated of the group.
Alabama made the cut when Hall narrowed his list to seven schools in a since-deleted tweet back on October 11, 2019. The Seffner, Fla., native is one of the top recruits in the country and has focused his college decisions to most of the obvious choices.
Ranked as the No. 10 wide receiver in the 2021 recruiting class by 247Sports composite, and 11th overall prospect in the state of Florida, it is surprising he didn’t have a single school from his home state in his top seven. That also sounds crazy considering he has at least 43 scholarship offers on the table.
WR Agiye Hall Commits to Alabama
With offenses across the country leaning more on their passing attacks, talented wide receivers are more important than ever in college football recruiting. So it should come as no surprise that Hall has been heavily recruited by the top schools in the country.
(Editor’s Note: These are the schools Hall named in the deleted tweet.)
- Oklahoma Sooners
- Clemson Tigers
- Alabama Crimson Tide
- Georgia Bulldogs
- LSU Tigers
- Texas Longhorns
- Arizona State Sun Devils
The Crimson Tide beat out the likes of the Sooners, Clemson and LSU, all of which have been producing star receivers over the last decade. The Longhorns and Bulldogs have had their stars, too. The Sun Devils stand out as the random school that hasn’t done much nationally on the field, or in recruiting lately, but it appears Hall wants to add his name to Alabama’s legacy.
Hall recently named his top four schools as Alabama, Arizona State, Clemson and LSU, and chose the ‘Tide despite 247Sports predicting Clemson as the front-runner to land Hall.
Hall has made unofficial visits to Clemson, including a trip to watch the Tigers take on Texas A&M in Week 2 of the 2019 season. He has also made trips to Florida State, which is one of the closest Power 5 schools, as well as Miami and Florida.
Agiye Hall Highlights
At 6-foot-3 and 190 pounds, Hall is a receiver with size who could easily contribute as soon as he arrives on campus. As a sophomore in 2018, he caught 47 catches for 878 yards and 10 touchdowns for Armwood High School. His production dipped as a junior, catching 32 passes for 590 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
He could definitely benefit from putting on a little more weight, but he’s still heading into his senior season in high school. He has plenty of time before he will be facing Power 5 defensive backs on a regular basis and possibly moving forward towards the NFL Draft in a few years.
According to 247Sports’ evaluation, Hall is already projected as a Day 3 draft guy:
Well-built with the frame to add more mass once he gets in a college strength program. A long, gifted athlete who tests very well in combine settings. Among the better athletes at receiver in the 2021 cycle. Broke out as a sophomore at a top high school program in the Tampa area. Saw a slight dip in production as a junior. Has the physical ability to run past corners and separate downfield with his long speed. Has the athletic ability to make acrobatic catches and pull away from defenders after the catch.Advertisement
Hall transferred from the Armwood Hawks and will play his senior season at powerhouse IMG Academy in Florida. Now that he’s committed to Alabama, all eyes will be on how he performs against the best competition in the nation at the high school level.
