"It will be great," Mitch said. "My brother and I are really close. It's a dream come true for us to play together at Ole Miss."
Russellville High didn't have a winning season on the gridiron this fall, but Hall felt his season individually went well.
"We were a lot like Ole Miss was," he said. "We had a lot of seniors to replace. We had like 30-something seniors and four of them were D-I signees. So that was tough to overcome. It was a rebuilding year, especially on defense.
"But I felt I played good," the 6-foot-6, 300-pounder said. "We were young at the (offensive) skill positions. But my guy rarely made the (defensive) play. So that felt good."
Mitch will sign in February and join a young but maturing group of offensive linemen that appears to be one of the deeper positions on the squad next season and into the future.
Mitch wants to be a big part of the success of that group, and he said he's working to do just that.
"I'm just trying to get stronger and faster," he said. "One of my main goals is to be as quick as I can be. I want to keep working on that. I'm not slow by any means, but I'll be coming into the fastest league in the nation, so I will work hard on my speed. I know I will be physical enough. Coach (Mike) Markuson has told me to keep working hard and getting faster, and that's what I intend to do."
As you would expect, Mitch attended several Rebel games this fall, at least as many as he could get to given his own high school schedule. Now he's busy again as he continues to play for the RHS basketball squad through the next few months.
Then it's on to Ole Miss, a place he eagerly anticipates being a part of the next several years.
"Every time I go to Ole Miss, I have a great time," Mitch said when he committed in May, the Rebels' first public commitment for the 2011 class. "It's always fun to visit there, so why not go to school there and play football there?"
But there's more. There's that bond with Matt, his 6-9, 321-pound brother, that is so strong.
"I remember when he let me know (he was transferring from Arkansas)," Mitch said. "He text me at school and said he was transferring. I said ‘I'll meet you there.' I can't want to get there. He's loved every minute of it, and I know I will, too."
