Linebacker Prince Hall Transfers to Division II Central Washington

By Dan Harralson

Head Coach Nick Saban has announced that linebacker Prince Hall has transferred to Division II school Central Washington. "We wish him the best of luck as he finishes his collegiate career," Nick Saban told reporters. Hall, from Moreno Valley (CA), was recruited by former UA head coach Mike Shula. Hall returned a fumble recovery resulting in a touchdown against Florida in 2006, sparking his biggest moment playing for the Crimson Tide. The year-by-year results started out as a promising career for Prince. As a Freshman, in 2006, Prince earned All-SEC Freshman honors through Sporting News and through the Coache's selections. 2006 was his best statistical season recording 77 tackles and guiding the Tide to the Independence Bowl against Oklahoma State. Under Coach Saban in 2007, Prince only started five games and only recorded 58 tackles. During the Tide's 12-0 regular season in 2008, Hall recorded only 17 tackles and did not start. The former UA linebacker released a statement addressing his transfer: "I would like to thank the University of Alabama, Coach Saban and the staff for helping me during my career," Hall said in a statement Friday. "I think it will be a great opportunity to finish my last year of college at Central Washington, and I am looking forward to it." Central Washington finished 10-2last season making the Division II playoffs. You can follow Prince Hall and the Central Washington Wildcats during the 2009 football season at:
