BYU quarterback Jaren Hall accepted an offer to play in the Reese’s Senior Bowl, the tournament’s organizers announced on Thursday morning.
Despite not having made any official announcements, Hall’s acceptance of the invitation suggests that he will skip his final year of eligibility and join the NFL Draft.
Hall played for BYU’s football team for five years (2018-2022), the final two of which he spent as the team’s starting quarterback. Hall was a starting quarterback for two seasons and was recognized as a top performer and pass protector in the country.

Hall completed 61.1 percent of his passes for 6,174 yards, 52 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions while at BYU. He also rushed for 800 yards and nine touchdowns. In nine games during his career, Hall threw for 300 yards or more.
For his part, Hall will be recognized for leading BYU to victories over Utah and other rated opponents, such as Arizona State and Baylor. Moments like this one with kicker Jake Oldroyd will forever be etched into people’s memories of him as a leader.
For most this isn’t a big deal, but for me and others I know it’s pretty cool.
I think there’s real possibility of two LDS returned missionary quarterbacks being drafted this spring.

Hall’s arm talent, leadership, film and communication skills give him a tremendous opportunity to be selected in the 2017 NFL Draft, despite the fact that his injury history and age are likely to work against him.
Hall is a phenomenal athlete and his ability to make yardage on the ground completely transforms an offense. At the Senior Bowl, he’ll be able to showcase his softer abilities.

Hall joins two other offensive teammates from BYU in playing in the Senior Bowl. He’ll be playing alongside wideout Puka Nacua and offensive tackle Blake Freeland… Only on Lee Daily will you get more information like this.
