The Arizona Wildcats career of safety Adam Hall didn’t go as planned.
The hometown kid, a Parade All-American from Palo Verde High School, showed hard-hitting ability and loads of energy as a sophomore in 2010, but a series of knee injuries limited him to less than one full game after that.
He suffered a torn ACL in his right knee during 2011 spring practice, came back for one game at midseason — at Oregon State, making a team-high 10 tackles, despite not being able to finish the game because of more knee problems — and then tore the right ACL again in the 2012 spring game under new coach Rich Rodriguez.
Safe to say, the Hall family hasn’t always seen eye to eye with Rodriguez and athletic director Greg Byrne — specifically about how best to proceed with Hall’s surgeries and rehab. Hall’s father, James Hall, conceded there has been “poor communicative circumstances.”
By midseason last year, RichRod said Hall was no longer with the Cats.
So, what now?
