    HALL BREAKS HAND
    In Friday's preview of Week 4's Ohio high school football scene – and the slate of out-of-state Buckeye commits who would be playing – there was a bit of a footnote that Streetsboro (Ohio) four-star defensive tackle commit Mike Hall was likely not playing. Over the weekend, we found out why.

    Cleveland.com reported that Hall, the nation's No. 54 overall player and No. 3 player in Ohio's 2021 class, suffered a broken right hand during practice ahead of Friday night's game:

    “I went to pancake the defensive back, and he rolled over me,” Hall told cleveland.com. “I heard it pop, but I really didn’t think about it when it happened. I talked to my trainer, and she was saying it didn’t look broke, but she was just saying that to be optimistic really.”

    Hall will reportedly miss the final two games of the regular season but is hopeful that he will make a return for the playoffs of his final high school season while wearing a cast.

    “He wants to play, but it’s all up to the doctor,” Streetsboro head coach Pete Thompson told cleveland.com. "He’s communicated with Ohio State. They’re encouraging him to play. As long as the doctor gives him the OK, he’ll be back.

    As stated above, Hall suffered the injury while practicing on the other side of the ball as an offensive tackle. We just wrote on Tuesday about Hall's willingness to be a leader and continue playing on both sides of the ball in order to help Streetsboro as best he could. Can't fault the nation's No. 5 defensive tackle for wanting to suit up as an offensive tackle as well just to try and get his squad some extra juice during a playoff push.

    “It was just a crazy feeling because, you know, you've got to treat your quarterback like your mom,” Hall told Eleven Warriors previously. “You would never want anybody to hit your mom. So I treat my quarterback like my mother. I would never let anybody do nothing. You've just got to treat it as that. You've just got to take that leadership.”

    Hall returned from a broken hand and assisted his Streetsboro Rockets to a 42-0 victory over Norton. Streetsboro won its second-straight Metro Atlantic Conference title and sixth overall.

    There is no doubt in my mind that Hall will be in the defensive line rotation next year.......

    Very, very underrated.........

    HALL PUTTING WORK IN
    Since we're on the subject of defensive tackles who are going to be awesome in college, check out this workout video of Ohio State 2021 signee Mike Hall:

    Hall finished the cycle as the No. 52 overall player and No. 5 defensive tackle in the 2021 class. It's a shame he didn't finish tucked into the top 50 so that he could have that label next to him his entire career, but Hall is the last person to actually care about that after his jump from being ranked outside the top 400 into top-55 range.

    Despite his high school career on the field being over at Streetsboro (Ohio) High School, the 6-foot-3, 290-pounder – who looks as athletic as any 3-tech defensive tackle in his class in that video – is continuing to put in offseason work.

    The original plan that Johnson had laid out for him was for Hall to not redshirt his first season and compete for a spot on the two-deep. That got a bit more difficult with the return of Haskell Garrett and Antwuan Jackson, but Hall still has the talent to do so.

    Making it more difficult is that Hall will not be enrolling until the summer, so offseason workouts are of even more paramount importance as he looks to be in the best shape possible when he gets into the hands of Mickey Marotti and Quinn Barham. Led by those two coaches, the Buckeyes want Hall to stay in the 280-290 range when he gets to campus in the summer but lost some fat and add muscle.

    “No, not really. It’s OK,” Hall told Eleven Warriors previously when asked if he was disappointed at not being an early enrollee. “As long as I’m going there, it’s no rush. It is an advantage for the guys that’s going early, just to get more work and to know the gameplan and all that. And just to get bigger, faster, stronger. They have an advantage especially in school, too. Those guys start school January 11th.

    “(My freshman year goals are) just to get a lot of reps on game days and just show to the coaches that even though I’m a freshman I can be a leader in practice and on and off the field.”

    If he follows the plan Johnson and Co. have for him, the Buckeyes believe that Hall “will be one of the best d-tackles to ever come out of Ohio State.”
