Jalen Hall, a freshman expected to play wide receiver for the Oregon Ducks, will no longer be a part of the program. Oregon head coach Mario Cristobal confirmed to reporters on Wednesday the Ducks have moved on from Hall, who has not been around the team much since his early enrollment last spring. Not so coincidentally, Hall was arrested on suspicion of robbery and other offenses this week.
“Well he hasn’t been on the roster for a pretty long time now,” Cristobal told reporters on Wednesday, according to a report from NBC Sports Northwest. “We’re moving on and certainly it is what it is.”
Hall enrolled early at Oregon to be able to participate in Oregon’s spring football practices, but he left the team to attend to a personal matter after just one practice. he was expected to return to the program at some point.
Hall and another man were arrested and charged by Los Angeles police with suspicion of robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, kidnapping, and burglary, according to a report from the Whittier Daily News. The two were arrested after being pulled over for reckless driving and the victim confirming the possessions located in the vehicle were among the stolen items.
