Former Alabama wide receiver Agiye Hall announced Tuesday that he has committed to Texas.
The No. 3-ranked receiver in the 2021 class, Hall was one of the stars of last year’s spring game and appeared destined to make an instant impact as a freshman.
But he never did break through the logjam at the position, which was headlined by All-SEC players Jameson Williams and John Metchie III.
Hall wound up playing sparingly as a freshman, catching four passes for 72 yards. He was then suspended by Nick Saban, Alabama’s coach, for violating team rules earlier in the month. He entered the transfer portal.
He will be reunited with Steve Sarkisian at Texas, who was Alabama’s offensive coach during Hall’s recruiting.
Texas and Alabama are set to face off in Austin on Sept. 9.
