Local standout linebacker Jordan Hall put his name on the dotted line Wednesday afternoon, officially committing to Michigan State University with a National Letter of Intent while surrounded by family and friends at his Stafford County home.
A National Letter of Intent binds an athlete and school together for a minimum of one year while ensuring the student a scholarship. Once signed by a player, it marks the end of the recruiting process and forbids other schools from contacting them.
It was an important but not difficult decision for Hall, with Michigan State standing out from other universities for the plans they have for him at linebacker.
“I feel like the plan they (Michigan State) had for me was better…I can go there and make an impact right now,” said Hall.
The freshman football player will head to campus in the first week of January to begin training with the Spartans. He is one of several local players to commit to Division I universities this year.
