Jalen Hall was a four-star recruit in the class of 2018, and among the top players that was set to begin their Ducks careers this fall. He was the third-ranked member of Oregon’s class.
As the Ducks prepare to host Stanford, and ESPN’s College GameDay, Hall is having a very different experience.
Earlier this month, he was arrested on on suspicion of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and burglary charges in Southern California. After the news broke, head coach Mario Cristobal confirmed that he was no longer with the program.
Via Duck Territory:
“Well he hasn’t been on the roster for a pretty long time now,” Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal said following Wednesday’s practice. “We’re moving on and certainly it is what it is. He hasn’t been on the roster and hasn’t been part of our team roster for some time now.”
TMZ has more on the charges against Jalen Hall.
If convicted of all charges, Hall could face life in prison. From TMZ:
Officials say Jalen was armed with a semi-automatic handgun — and threatened 3 people inside the home before making off with jewelry and other valuables.
They fled the scene — but cops tracked them down using an airship and arrested both men.
Hall has been charged with 3 counts of home invasion robbery, 2 counts kidnapping to commit robbery and 1 count of 1st-degree burglary.
If convicted on all counts, both men could face up to LIFE in prison.
According to the report, bail has been set for $2 million for both Hall and the other suspect, Milard Hill.
Hall was the No. 127 player, and No. 22 wide receiver, in the class of 2018.
