Texas Receiver Agiye Hall Arrested By School P.D, Charged With Class B Misdemeanor
Texas Longhorns wide receiver Agiye Hall was reportedly arrested by the University of Texas Police Department on Thursday. Hall faces a Class B misdemeanor after being charged with criminal mischief equal to or greater than $100 but less than $750.
Hall was originally with Alabama prior to entering the transfer portal and joining Texas this off-season. Hall was removed from the Crimson Tide’s online roster for allegedly violating the team’s rules. Alabama Head Coach Nick Saban issued a statement to reporters explaining the situation.
“He is suspended from the team for violations of some team rules, whether they’re academic or whatever. It doesn’t really matter. Everybody has a responsibility and obligation to respect the principles and values and do what they need to do. They’re all there to help them be more successful, so to respect those and do those are always really helpful.”
When explaining his reason for choosing Texas over other potential suitors, Hall highlighted the level of support he felt from Longhorn supporters. Something he alleges wasn’t as prominent during his time in Alabama.
“One thing that really stood out is the culture. Bama fans — they’re not really loving, if I could say — even when you leave. Texas fans are like a family. They love you unconditionally. They want the best for you and want to make sure you’re striving to be the best person you are, whether it’s people in the stands, players or coaches — they’re all connected, which is a good thing.”
