Clemson Tigers point guard Rod Hall could have an opportunity to continue his athletic career in the pros. However, it wouldn’t be in the National Basketball Association.
Instead, Hall could end up finding his way onto the gridiron with a NFL team despite never suiting up and playing a down of football at the collegiate level.
“If I get a chance, I think I definitely can do this,” Hall said to Robinson. “I just have to get back into that football groove.”
Hall is listed at 6-foot-1, 205-pounds.
According to a report from Mandrallius Robinson of Greenville Online, Hall has received plenty of interest from teams around the league.
The report says as many as ten teams are interested in Rod Hall. Clemson assistant coach Steve Smith has been fielding the calls and workouts are expected to begin this week.
Hall will workout at wide receiver and cornerback.
In high school, Hall was a standout and recorded more than 1,200 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns.
Whether Hall still has that level of football skill left in him remains to be seen, but you can’t blame him for giving it a shot.
