"I did it yesterday," Hall said Monday. "It's just the best place for me, for more reasons that just football."
The decision rode heavily on his father's health in
"My dad is getting older and I mainly picked them because I want to be closer to help my mother out more," he said. "I just want to be with him during his last few years. Hey, I can still get me degree and play ball too, so it's just the best thing for me right now."
Hall's father, at 83 years old, requires a 20 minute drive
four times a week for treatment at the Veterans Administration hospital in
"He can stay with me now," he said. "I just want to help my mom out since she has to drive him every time. It costs money to do that all week, and I don't see why I can't help out now. My other siblings are grown up and out of the house, so this is real important for me to do."
Though Hall's decision seems like an easy one, debating between all the schools on his list was very hard. Hall, at 6-foot-0 200 pounds, and 4.40, expressed interest in Kansas State, Nebraska, Memphis, Troy State, and Oklahoma State, but only took official visits to TSU, S. Florida, and A&M.
However, dealing with Darren Sproles at K-State wasn't
something Hall wasn't too thrilled about. He has three to play two at
"I just don't want to fight with Sproles for playing time," he said last month. "That guy is one of the best in the country. I'm not afraid of battling for a position, but the other schools offer more of a chance for me. I want to go where I can get in right away and contribute."
