Agiye Hall, WR

It looks like the wide receiver transfer for the Longhorns this offseason that has the highest ceiling, by a good margin, is the former Alabama Crimson Tide blue-chip recruit and redshirt freshman Agiye Hall. Texas brought in three scholarship wideouts by way of the transfer portal this offseason. And Hall is the most promising of the trio if we’re looking long-term.

By the time Arch arrives on campus, Hall is still going to have another three years of eligibility remaining at least with Texas. That would give this potent quarterback-wide receiver duo plenty of time to get acclimated with each other and find some chemistry in the passing game.

It’s crazy to think what Texas would be able to do on offense in a situation where the starting trio of wideouts for Arch is Thompson, Hall, and DeSoto’s Cook. In that situation, Thompson could be the speedy threat coming out of the slot, with Cook being the do-it-all x-wide receiver in a similar role to that of Xavier Worthy now.

That leaves Hall potentially as the outside receiver that fills the role that the former Wyoming Cowboys breakout redshirt freshman Isaiah Neyor will for Texas this fall. The 6-foot-3 and 200-pound Hall has great separating speed for a wideout of his size and stature, along with some tremendous body control and insane physicality running after the catch.

Hall should be in a position to earn a starting role for the Longhorns at the h-wide receiver spot by the 2023 or 2024 season. Some of that will depend on how long Neyor sticks around in college. But the plan for Hall with Sark and the Longhorns looks to be to groom him to take this starting role on the outside within the next couple of years.
