Aidan Hall announced on social media on Saturday that he was verbally committing to Iowa Football. The Harlan (IA) High Athlete became the Hawkeyes’ ninth known verbal commitment in the 2023 recruiting class.
Iowa offered Hall a scholarship on May 13. He spoke with HN about this opportunity.
“I chose Iowa because of my relationship with the coaching staff, their ability to put guys in the NFL and also being a Hawkeye fan growing up,” Hall told HN after his engagement.
Hall (6-2, 200) also reported scholarship offers from the Air Force, Army, Fordham, Illinois State, North Dakota State, northern Iowa, South Dakota, the state of South Dakota and western Illinois. Iowa State and Kansas State were showing interest.
“It was the time to hire me because I wanted to finish the recruitment process and get rid of it. The process is long and sometimes very stressful. It feels good because I no longer have to I can focus on the coming season without worrying about it,” he said.
A versatile athlete, Hall could find himself in several positions at the top level. Safety, money and linebacker could be options with the Hawkeyes.
Hall stood out on both sides of the ball last season for the Cyclones. He rushed 94 times for 777 yards and 17 touchdowns, caught 32 passes for 755 yards and seven other scores, and had 29.5 tackles (25 solo). He added three interceptions, including a pair of Pick-6s on defense.
Hall averaged 11.5 points and 8.0 rebounds last basketball season. He qualified for the Drake relays in the 100 meters, his best this year being 10.96 seconds.
Hall is undecided on a major but is considering something in the business field.
