Mike Hall Jr. Confirms He'll Play Against Michigan After Sitting out Against Minnesota

Mike Hall Jr. will be ready to play on Saturday against Michigan.

Ohio State's standout defensive tackle told Eleven Warriors Monday at TownHall's "Feed The Need" event he'll be available for the monumental contest against Michigan on Saturday after playing sparingly against Michigan State and then sitting out against Minnesota due to injury.

"Yes sir, I'll be back this week," Hall said. "I'm back healthy, and I'll be back with my guys. Let's go."

Hall said he got banged up after delivering a hit to the quarterback against Michigan State and "came up a little bit rough." He added his absence against Minnesota was precautionary and that he's thrilled to be back with his teammates.

"This week is the biggest week," Hall said. "We work for this game 365 days a year. We have to execute. We're definitely hungry this year, but the focus is on 'That Team Up North,' and we have to stay locked in on that (with the film room)."

Hall said he was happy to spend some time during a busy week providing free turkey dinners to Columbus residents while helping out at Feed The Need with nine other Ohio State players.

"This was an event I was previously in last year, so just keeping that going and being a blessing to others and having these people come out who may be less fortunate than us, just to provide those services and needs for them is just a blessing," Hall said. "It's good to do something good this week while also having a big game. God continues to bless those who bless others."
