4-star DE, UW commit tripping to WSU w/ Ayers

EARLY SATURDAY MORNING, CF.C received a text from future Coug DeMarcus Ayers. He was just about to hop on a plane, en route to Washington State for his official visit this weekend. And he wasn't alone. Ayers says he's bringing along his teammate, a 4-star prospect who had verbally committed to another Pac-12 school.

Daeshon Hall, ranked the No. 17 defensive end in the land and a Washington commit, will be in Pullman this weekend as well, says Ayers.

In addition to Washington State, the 6-6, 220 pound defensive end has offers from Washington, USC, LSU, Texas, Texas Tech, West Virginia, Oklahoma State, Missouri and several others.

As a junior last season, Hall had 60 tackles and 11 sacks, which led to him earning First-Team All-District Honors. Through the first three games this season, Hall had 20 tackles and seven sacks for the Tigers.

Hall, who committed to Texas last February and then decommitted in late June, is originally from Seattle, but moved to Texas last year. He then committed to the Huskies on June 29, but told Scout's Erin Hartigan in early September that he was still planning on taking additional visits.

Scout's National Recruiting Analyst Greg Biggins had the chance to see Hall play during the Huskies camp in June.

"Hall is a very intriguing player with a huge upside," Biggins said. "He's 6-6, 220 pounds and has great quickness off the ball. He was dominant in the one on one pass rush drills and as he continues to fill out his frame, he has a chance to be a very special player at the next level."

Ayers and Hall will be on their official visit to Washington State through the weekend and won't travel home until Monday.
