A former Alabama receiver’s first year at a new school is off to a terrible start.
Agiye Hall, now a Texas Longhorns WR, was arrested Thursday in Austin on charges of criminal mischief valued between $100 and $750, according to public booking information. It is a misdemeanor charge.
Hall transferred to Texas from Alabama this spring in search of a fresh start. Alabama coach Nick Saban suspended him in April for an undisclosed violation of team rules. Clearly, he has still not learned a lesson from his behavior.
“Whether they’re academic or whatever, it doesn’t matter,” Saban told reporters in April. “Everyone has a responsibility and obligation to respect the principles and values and do what they need to do. They’re all there to help them be successful.”
Saban was then asked if Hall could rejoin the Tide, and the coach said Hall had already been given a second chance. His name was removed from Alabama’s online roster.
“I don’t know what his plans are for the future,” Saban said last April.
Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian addressed Hall’s arrest with an official statement on Friday.
Hall has been suspended indefinitely from the team.
“We’re aware of the situation involving Agiye Hall, have talked with his family, and have suspended him indefinitely from all team activities for conduct that is detrimental to our program,” Sarkisian said.
Hall was a four-star recruit and had four catches for 72 yards as a freshman. He appeared in only three games with the Crimson Tide.
