Hall, 6-5, 230 pounds showed well during the June Prospect Camp and was told the Hogs would monitor him the first few games of the season. He also has scholarship offers from Cincinnati and Louisiana -Monroe.
Hall, who recorded 50 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 4 quarterback hurries and 3 forced fumbles for the Wildcats as a junior, played last season at 250 pounds but has slimmed down with CrossFit, a strength and conditioning program.
Wood said Hall and his family met with Coach Bret Bielema Wednesday night and was told Bielema liked what he saw when while watching Har-Ber and Bentonville earlier this season and an offer was extended.
He said Hall and his family are talking things over.
Hall said his number one focus is Har-Ber football and Friday's game against Rogers. He plans to go home and talk things over with his parents after the game. He doesn't think he'll make a decision after the game. Very excited about the offer.
