Nittany Lions Host Senior Day on Saturday Versus Badgers
After playing tight end in 2013, Albert Hall was shifted to offensive tackle during spring practice. The redshirt sophomore saw action in five games last fall on special teams, including each of the final four contests. Hall put on 20 pounds of muscle during the winter workouts for the move to tackle. With the graduation of a trio of 2013 starters on the offensive line, Hall will look to bolster the depth of the Nittany Lions in the trenches. Hall earned Dean's List honors during the spring semester with a 3.87 grade-point average. Hall is one of two returning players on the roster from New York, joining cornerback Jordan Lucas.
