Louisiana-Lafayette Offers Henderson’s Trae Hall
The first Division I FBS scholarship offer is in for Henderson junior quarterback Trae Hall, the first of potentially several more to come this spring.
Hall (6-3, 185) tweeted the news Monday of an offer from Louisiana-Lafayette. He was previously offered by Alcorn State, an FCS competitor.
The Lions' dual-threat signal-caller became the 11th East Texan in the 2018 recruiting class to pick up an FBS offer.
Hall was one of two area quarterbacks offered by ULL on Monday, joining Tyler Lee's Chance Amie.
In 2016, Hall passed for 2,016 yards with 24 touchdowns and four interceptions, while finishing second on the team in rushing with 749 yards and six touchdowns on 80 attempts.
Henderson was 11-2 last season, sharing the District 9-4A Division I title with Kilgore, and advancing three rounds deep in the playoffs. The Lions were eliminated by eventual state champion and district rival Carthage, 33-31.
The Ragin' Cajuns are members of the Sun Belt Conference, and are coached by Mark Hudspeth. ULL was 6-7 last year, falling to Southern Miss, 28-21, in the New Orleans Bowl.
Hall, like all college football prospects currently in their junior year of high school, will become eligible to sign with any school that offers him in February of 2018.
