Huskers lose three-star DB commit
By Damon Sayles
Many felt it was a matter of time for Jason Hall (Grand Prairie, Texas/South Grand Prairie). Once he picked up a Texas offer, he was put on a countdown to how long it would take for him to decommit from Nebraska.
Friday was the day for the three-star defensive back, as he noted via text message and confirmed via phone call that he decided to part ways with the Cornhuskers. Hall, a 6-foot-3, 192-pound safety who can also play cornerback effectively, is an uncommitted target again.
“Right now, I’m keeping my options open,” Hall said. “I just want to see where I fit best. I want to make sure I evaluate all of my options.”
Hall committed to Nebraska on May 8, but on June 9, following a Texas camp, he was offered by the Longhorns. It was an offer he said intrigued him from the jump.
“It wasn’t anything they did wrong or anything,” Hall said of Nebraska. “I’m keeping my options open and seeing what’s good for me.”
What Hall made sure to include was the fact that while he likes Texas, he’s not a Texas lean. Schools such as Baylor, Oklahoma, Iowa and Utah are very much in the picture for his services. Hall added that he’s not going to make any rushed decisions about where he’ll play.
In the eyes of many, Texas will be tough to beat. For Hall, he only had two words to comment further.
