The good news keeps flowing, as Darrin Hall received an invite to the Senior Bowl this week. The Senior Bowl is widely considered the premier showcase for college football’s best senior NFL draft prospects, and the invite is a well-deserved accolade for the former four-star recruit from Youngstown, Ohio.
While Hall didn’t make much of a mark during his first two years at Pitt (just 100 attempts for 417 yards), he flashed some potential in 2017, rushing for 628 yards on 128 carries (4.9 avg). Darrin really flourished in 2018 behind coach Dave Borbley’s zone blocking scheme, where his decisive one-cut running style and above-average speed helped him break some big runs at key times during the season. Hall also displayed a nice bit of power, as you can see from his UVA game highlights. (Check out his second TD where he completely trucks the Safety James Conner-style to get into the endzone.)
