1) We are loaded at the DE in this class, so while he is a big loss, we can handle it. I think Bosa and Cooper have more upside and are better suited for our needs. I thought that Hall could be converted to a LB as he seems more athletic.
2) I honestly think he was scared of competition. By having two other STUDS at your position, in your class... it makes you rethink your desire to "fight" for the position. Maybe he thinks somewhere else ('Bama) would be better for him.
3) If he's being disrespectful now, imagine what he'd be like on his own in college. If he doesn't have the heart to be a Buckeye, then maybe this isn't the best place for him.
With all that being said, these are young kids that are getting a lot of attention. Things can be taken the wrong way and we don't know what he's thinking. Wish him the best, but if you ain't with us... you against us!! Go Bucks!!
