Alabama transfer and former four-star recruit Agiye Hall will soon be visiting one of the most prominent programs in college football. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound wideout is reportedly paying a visit to the University of Texas this weekend.

Hall announced his intentions to transfer just a week ago. The decision came after Nick Saban suspended him for violation of team rules. It was a bit of a rollercoaster ride, and both sides were clearly happy to move on. The former four-star recruit is now one of the top players in the portal.

Texas didn't take long to make contact. Steve Sarkisian - now Texas' head coach - was Alabama's offensive coordinator when Hall was recruited to play for the Crimson Tide. That familiarity could prove to go a long way.

Hall will be spending the weekend in Austin as he checks out the Texas Longhorns on a visit, per a 247Sports report.

Playing in a Steve Sarkisian offense is an enticing factor for both high school recruits and transfers. There's no doubt Agiye Hall is factoring that into his decision, in addition to his previous relationship with Sarkisian. Will Sarkisian and the Longhorns land the promising prospect from the portal? College football fans are discussing the idea:

Texas could have one of the best passing attacks in college football next season, especially if the Longhorns can land Hall.
