One of the nation's best high school football players – a talented wideout who is also a hard-hitting safety - now has Arkansas on his list of possible college destinations.
Texarkana (Texas) Liberty-Eylau athlete Davion Hall (6-3, 195) – a Scout.com five-star prospect committed to Baylor - took an unofficial visit to Fayetteville last weekend to check out all things Razorback.
"It was a great visit," Hall said. "I really enjoyed meeting the coaches at Arkansas and really enjoyed seeing the campus and all of their facilities. It's a great place and I am really excited about continuing to develop my relationship with the coaches."
The visit moved Arkansas into the top four schools for Hall, who Scout.com has as the nation's second-best wideout prospect nationally and the 19th-best player overall.
"After this visit, I would say that my top four are now Baylor, Alabama, Arkansas and LSU," noted Hall, who also has offers from SMU and Texas Tech. "I have some great options."
Hall is coming off a junior season in which had 97 tackles and two interceptions as well as 715 yards combined receiving and rushing and two kick returns for touchdowns.
"I would say it is about half and half on the schools who are recruiting me for offense and defense," Hall said. "Arkansas told me that they are looking at me as a wide receiver the first year and then moving me to safety."
Hall noted that he really doesn't have a preference on which side of the ball he lands at in college.
"I enjoy getting the ball in my hands and making plays and I feel like I am very good at going up and getting the ball and being physical with the defensive backs," Hall said.
"On defense, I feel like I can cover really well and the one thing that I love to do is bring the helmet and be physical with guys trying to make plays," Hall added.
He has one main thing that he wants to work on that will help on both sides of the ball.
"I really am trying to get my footwork better for both offense and defense," Hall said. "I want to be able to use my hips to my advantage."
Currently committed to Baylor, Hall hopes to take some more visits to his top four and have a decision late this summer.
"I would like to have my decision made for sure by the time my senior year starts," Hall said. "I definitely would like to have that done."
