#73 LG Jeremi Hall
Redshirt Junior, 6'4", 335 lbs.
2015 Stats: Hall played in eight games last year, all as a left guard behind the now-departed Thor Jozwiak.
Position on Depth Chart: Jeremi has been moved to right guard, where he is listed as Dominique Threatt's backup on the post-spring depth chart.
How He Came To USF: Hall starred at Tri-Cities High School in East Point, Georgia, just south of the Atlanta city limits. Following his junior year, Jeremi was named to the Georgia all-state team by The Associated Press, while the Bulldogs had their best season in school history, finishing 10-3 with a trip to the state quarterfinals. Hall was committed to Georgia Tech for months, but he took an official visit to USF in January and Paul Johnson flipped out and took away his offer. Hall then committed to USF late. Besides the Yellow Jackets, Jeremi had offers from Ole Miss, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Kentucky, and Texas Tech.
Here's a highlight reel of Jeremi at Tri-Cities.
Recruiting Rankings: Jeremi was a three-star prospect on all the recruiting sites (Rivals, ESPN, 247, and Scout).
Projected Playing Time: Even if Cameron Ruff and Threatt stay healthy, Hall should see a fair bit of action since he can sub in at either guard position. He is USF's most experienced backup lineman, so if he's pressed into starting duty there won't be much of an adjustment period.

Did You Know? Listed at 335 pounds, Jeremi is the heaviest player on USF's roster by 20 pounds. He also holds the record as the second-heaviest player in USF history. Hall's listed weight was 345 pounds before the 2014 season, beaten only by Jake Kaufman's listed 362 pounds in 2011.
Not surprisingly, Hall won the belly flop competition before the Miami Beach Bowl last year.
