Texas Longhorns sophomore wide receiver Agie Hall will face the Louisiana Monroe Warhawks in Saturday’s season opener, according to a report from Anwar Richardson of the Orangebloods.
According to my sources, Texas receiver Aguier Hall will be active in the season opener against ULM. Hall has been working hard behind the scenes since his suspension. I don’t know how much he will play on Saturday, but it’s a fresh start for Hall.

However, if Hall dresses up, there are other reports that he didn’t practice this week, which would prevent him from playing.
I saw your other tweet. No shade, but Agiye Hall didn’t practice this week. If he’s active, I think getting dressed is an activity too.

So this could be just another step in getting back on the team.
Hall, a transferee from Alabama, was arrested in August and charged with criminal mischief for removing a parking boot from his car, according to his arrest affidavit.
“When I was on patrol at the University of Texas Police Department, Converse recommended dispatching a black man near 1900 San Jacinto Blvd. Officer Converse said he advised the subject not to damage or remove the parking boot as it was the property of UT. I observed a man brandishing a tire iron with his boot in the parking lot…
“The parking boot was partially shattered and was so damaged that it was completely separated from the wheels of Aguier’s car. Hall had previously been warned by several police officers not to damage the parking boot. I did.”
Hall received an indefinite suspension after his arrest, but Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian was quick to clarify that the suspension was more than just an arrest.
“My job as a coach is to put my players in the best possible position, not only in football but also in classroom life. It’s a body of work, something we felt needed to help this young man, and that’s what we’re doing.
Working with Hall and his family, Sarkisian’s goal is to develop a plan to help the sophomore wide receiver mature after a previous suspension in Alabama contributed to Hall’s decision to leave Tuscaloosa. did.
“We are working with Aguier and his family to bring him into a situation where he can be a really functional part of this team and his goals, our goals, are the best football. To do the University of Texas, graduate from the University of Texas, be a great teammate, and leave here as an even better person than when you arrived. We’re putting all the pieces in place. When the time comes, we’ll bring him back into the team.”
In a Sarkisian update following the team’s second scrimmage nearly two weeks ago, the Texas head coach expressed satisfaction with Hall’s progress.
“Aguier is doing everything he needs to do now,” Sarkisian said. “I’m happy. I’m going to leave that update there.”
According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Hall is a consensus prospect from Bloomingdale, Florida, with four stars in the 2021 class, and was ranked as the 45th best player and 5th wide receiver in the nation. . During Hall’s freshman season at the Crimson Tide, he appeared in seven games and finished with four receptions for 72 yards at length of 28 yards.
During the spring, however, Hall was suspended for violating team rules and entered the NCAA transfer portal shortly thereafter before transferring to the Longhorns.
