Gophers DT Mose Hall announces that he's transferring
May 2, 2016 — 4:47pm
Mose Hall, a redshirt freshman defensive tackle for the Gophers, announced Monday on Twitter that he has decided to transfer.
The 6-4, 275-pound Hall comes from Mobile (Ala.) Murphy High School, the same school that produced former Gophers wide receiver KJ Maye and current defensive tackle Gary Moore.
Injuries left the Gophers thin at defensive tackle last season, but it's now a team strength for the team with Steven Richardson and Scott Ekpe both healthy, and the addition of junior college transfer Merrick Johnson to go with a host of top reserves, including Andrew Stelter, Gary Moore and Yoshub Timms.
Randy Johnson has been covering college football in one form or another since the early 1990s. He was the Star Tribune’s main college football editor on the copy desk for nearly two decades before returning to reporting in August 2017 as the beat writer for Gophers football. Randy has covered a Rose Bowl (Joe Paterno’s 1994 Penn State team), and he covered a John Gutekunst-coached Gophers team that missed out on the 1990 Weed-Eater Bowl. Email Randy to talk about the Gophers.
As unbeaten Central Florida showed last year, it looks impossible for a team from the 'Group of Five' conferences to earn a spot in the College Football Playoff. But there are some candidates who'll give it a try this fall.
