Daeshon Hall Decommits from Texas, Next Stop Oregon?


Almost four months ago, four-star recruit Daeshon Hall made his commitment to Texas, one day after the universities’ junior day. Earlier today, he confirms months of rumors of wavering from his commitment and he’s included Oregon as an interest.

Taylor Hamm, leading recruiting analyst for Texas A&M at 247Sports, broke the news on Twitter this morning. Via his account:

“Just spoke to Daeshon Hall. He’s officially de-committed from #Texas.”

The 6-foot-6, 220-pound defensive end still doesn’t consider Texas out of the equation. Hall responded to HornsNation in a report by ESPN football blogger, Max Olson.

“It’s still a school I’m going to consider,” said Hall, who currently lives back in Seattle. Desiring to find a place that’s closer to home, he’s “visited Washington” and “considering trips to USC and Oregon.”

The Ducks haven’t given an offer to the recruit just yet. All of his other interests have given him an offer, including Notre Dame, Texas A&M, and the aforementioned Longhorns, Huskies, and Trojans. Other schools that have given him an offer but aren’t currently receiving interest are Baylor, Missouri, and TCU.

Hall is ranked 18th in his position at Scout in the 2013 recruiting class. Scouter Greg Powers notes that he is “physical at the line of scrimmage” and can “leverage to stand the man up or he can be quick enough to simply get around” the linemen.

ESPN doesn’t have him listed as high with three stars, receiving just 51st in the defensive end position and 86th in the state of Texas (Hall played at Lancaster during high school).
