Former Alabama wide receiver Agiye Hall is talented, we all know that. We knew that out of high school as well when the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder was a high 4 star out of Florida. But we also knew he was a bit flaky.
Some schools backed off him during the process and he changed his leaders almost weekly. But Alabama coveted him and landed him over 30+ additional offers. And he showed promise. While he only had 4 catches for 72 yards at Alabama, his play in scrimmages and practice led many to believe he could be the next great receiver for Nick Saban out of Florida.
After a second suspension, Hall entered the transfer portal and has been linked with many teams. Here are the best fits in my opinion. However, a lot will depend on who’s interested.
UCF — Gus Malzahn recruited Hall out of high school as did most coaches and now he’s in his home state at UCF with a reputation for taking chances on players in the portal. This could be just the step Hall needs and he’d become the most talented receiver on the roster.
Georgia — I am not sure UGA wants him but they seemed to out of high school and losing Jermaine Burton to Alabama stings a bit so Hall’s talent might be worth the risk.
FSU — This roster needs an upgrade in talent but Mike Norvell is also working on team chemistry so this would be a good on field fit but would be a risk.
Texas — Steve Sarkisian helped recruit him out of high school and Texas has many former Alabama coaches as well as a few transfers on the roster. He’d be a great No. 2 to Xavier Worthy.
Florida — Billy Napier, like Norvell, is changing the culture at his new program so Hall could be a risk but they need wide receiver talent.
Arizona State — The Sun Devils became a surprise contender for Hall out of high school and a fresh start far from home might not be horrible.
Oklahoma — The Sooners have been mentioned here because they recruited him out of high school and they are known for offense. Jeff Lebby might be interested.
USC — Lincoln Riley showed interest out of high school when he was at Oklahoma and he would be a power addition on offense.
