Texas wide receiver Agiye Hall has officially entered the transfer portal. After just a single season in Austin, the former top-100 high school football player is on the move yet again.
Texas WR Agiye Hall Enters Transfer Portal
The Longhorns seldom used Hall in 2022, as he played in just three games this past season. Hall’s entrance in the transfer portal marks the second consecutive season he’s opted to change teams.
It was just last fall that Hall entered the portal from Alabama and ultimately chose the Longhorns.
In two seasons, Hall has accumulated just five receptions for 79 yards.
During his freshman season at Alabama, Hall had a promising end to his debut season. He appeared in four games, most notably against Georgia in the SEC Championship Game, where he was targeted seven times and had two catches.
However, that would be the last time Crimson Tide fans saw him, as he opted to enter the portal in the offseason. A few weeks later, he sided with his former offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian in Austin.
Hall appeared in three games with Texas, making a lone reception against Texas Tech back in Week 4.
The 6’3″, 195-pound receiver was ranked as one of the top recruits coming out of high school and immediately factors into the top of the available pass-catching options in the portal.
Possible Transfer Portal Destinations for Agiye Hall
Hall was recruited heavily out of high school by a host of schools. Some of those have reached the top of the list for his potential commitment in the transfer portal.
Here are a few destinations Hall may lean toward in the portal:
- Florida State Seminoles
- LSU Tigers
- Arkansas Razorbacks
On Florida State: Hall attended the FSU camp in July of 2019 during his recruitment. Seminoles head coach Mike Norvell has proven to be a wizard in the transfer portal and landed CFN’s No. 1 ranked defensive line prospect on December 26 when Braden Fiske committed.
The Seminoles have one of the top returning quarterbacks in the ACC in Jordan Travis and could be an ideal destination after losing several players to transfer and/or graduation this offseason.
On LSU: LSU jumps into the mix here for Hall’s services due to Cortez Hankton’s involvement with Hall during his recruitment. Hankton was Hall’s main recruiter during the original process while at Georgia, and Hall even attended Georgia’s Junior Day in January 2020 while Hankton was still there.
Now at LSU, Hankton is the program’s wide receivers coach and passing game coordinator. With Kayshon Boutte returning, a lot of NFL eyes will be on the Tigers’ receivers this year, and that’s certainly a big draw.
On Arkansas: Arkansas rounds out the trio of programs of interest for Hall’s services. Wide receivers coach Jordan Stepp has put his name on the national map with recent success stories such as Treylon Burks and Trey Knox, and pulled Jadon Haselwood from Oklahoma.
Stepp is a rising star in the coaching ranks and could cement his candidacy for an offensive coordinator or even head coaching gig with Hall’s services and a successful 2023 season.
