Jordan Hall solid with Michigan State despite visiting Gainesville

Several prospects from IMG Academy visited the Swamp on Saturday to watch the Florida Gators take on the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Michigan State linebacker commit Jordan Hall (6-2, 224, Bradenton, FL. IMG) was one of those guys on campus and he enjoyed spending his day in the Swamp.

“It was a really good atmosphere and I caught up with some people that I haven’t seen in a while,” Hall said on his visit to Florida on Saturday. “It was good to get off campus with them [IMG teammates] and spend some quality time with them.”

The Gators have continued to push for Hall despite his commitment to the Spartans and he told the staff again on Saturday where his heart is.

“We’ve talked a little bit but they know I’ve been locked in with Michigan State,” he said on his commitment to Michigan State. “I was just here hanging out with some friends and coming to see a good game.”

Linebackers coach Jay Bateman has explained to Hall that he’s needed and wanted in Gainesville and Hall appreciates the staff continuing to work on him.

“I think it’s their job to do that,” Hall said on Florida pushing for him. “Like they said, they still feel like I can be that missing piece for them. I don’t blame them, but I just told them that I was here to see a good game.”

Next up for Hall will be a return trip to his future home as the Spartans have one last home game this year.

“I’m going to Michigan State next weekend,” Hall said on other visit plans. “I’ll be up there for their last game.”
