Missouri verbal commit and 2015 WR prospect Emanuel Hall 6’3” 194 Franklin (TN) Centennial is having a great senior season. His Centennial Cougars are 5-0 heading into the weekend, and he already has 7 TD receptions. He told ShowMeMizzou.com that he’s averaging about 4 receptions per game and nearly 25 yards per reception.

“Our season’s going great!” said Hall, who explained that he’s not getting as many carries this year as he did a year ago, and that his receptions have included short passes where he has tacked on yards after the catch, as well as some longer passes down the field. “We kind of mix it up. We definitely attack both ways.”

Hall said that his relationship with Missouri is solid.

“I definitely stay in contact with Coach Washington,” said Hall. “I keep updated on how things are going at Missouri, and I keep him updated on how things are going with me.”

Hall said that he’s hearing from some other colleges, but that he’s 100% committed to Missouri.

“It’s all Missouri,” said Hall. “I mean, there’s a few schools, probably four or five schools, that are still coming after me pretty strong. But in my mind, it’s all Missouri. I don’t really worry about any other schools.”

Hall said that he tells the other coaches that he’s “fully 100% for Missouri”. He said that communication with other schools is very limited.

Hall is looking forward to signing with Missouri in February and getting started next June.

“I’m really excited to be able to play under Coach Pinkel,” said Hall. “And, I’m really excited about having a great quarterback throwing to me. And, Missouri has really talented receivers. You know, Signing Day is coming up real soon, so I’m real excited about it.”

Hall is planning to take an official visit to Missouri later in the season, or after the season. He said that he “most likely” won’t play basketball at Centennial this year. Instead, he wants to get in the weight room and get stronger, and work on improving his speed and explosion. He is planning to run track in the spring.

“I want to use that time to stay in shape, and get ready for track,” explained Hall. “And also, I want to get bigger. My goal is to get to like 205 pounds for college.”

Hall said that last year during track season, he was running on a sore hamstring. He wants to see if he can improve on his 11.04-second 100 meters, and his 6’8” high jump when he’s fully healthy.
