Arkansas defensive end commitment Jake Hall has been chosen to the Class 7A West All State team and named the outstanding lineman. The team was picked by the league coaches.
Hall, 6-5, 230 pounds was an Arkansas Democrat-Gazette preseason All Arkansas selection, He recorded 67 tackles, 3.5 sacks, 12 QB hurries, 2 pass deflections, 2 forced fumbles and a recovered fumble this season.
National recruiting analyst Tom Lemming of CBS Sports Network rates Hall a 3-star plus prospect.
“One of the most versatile big guys in the state of Arkansas” Lemming said. “Jake has what it takes to become an effective pass rusher on the next level. He can play in a three four front and looks thin at his weight. He is tenacious, tough and relentless."
