The athletic DE from Lancaster committed to the Longhorns in late February after a whirlwind recruitment, but has since made visits to Baylor's pro day and had an unofficial visit to Texas A&M. Hall may have been accompanying teammates and it's not clear what his intentions were, but where there are smokescreens, there may be fire. Mack Brown has not tolerated recruits making visits - unofficial or otherwise - while committed to Texas, but a thin year at DE in-state and an inability to grab a commitment from Alief's Torrodney Prevot , may be granting us a tolerance born of necessity.
However, some recent rumors suggest that other Texas schools probably aren't our ultimate concern.
A reader with some connections in the Pacific Northwest e-mailed me a sampling of the chatter from various UW sources that Hall's family may be trying to get back to Seattle and, should that happen, Daeshon will open up a West Coast recruitment to Washington, Oregon, and USC.
Whether that ultimately bears out or not, it's not unreasonable to think that Hall is currently exploring his options and may be experiencing commitment remorse. Should he decommit, expect Texas to redouble their efforts on Prevot, take another look at the 2013 DE class in-state, and start exploring OOS options.
