Noble Hall jumps on SDSU offer

Defensive end Noble Hall (Las Vegas/Valley) received a scholarship offer Friday night from San Diego State and the 2014 prospect committed Saturday to play for the Aztecs, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

"Going there is a good fit for me because it is so close to home," he said. "It is a big relief. Now, I can focus on football and keeping my grades up."

Army, Idaho and Northern Arizona also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-3, 235-pound prospect. UNLV showed interest. Aztecs assistant head coach/running backs coach Jeff Horton led San Diego State's pursuit.

He registered 64 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, four sacks and an interception returned for a touchdown as a junior.

Hall was previously known as Eric Burrell. This winter, Hall legally changed his name to honor his father, who was shot and killed before he was born.

San Diego State has seven players on board for 2014.
