Recruiting: Maurice Hall released from hospital Wednesday; ‘doing great,’ coach says
NORMAN — Maurice Hall, the junior linebacker from St. Petersburg, Fla., who was shot in a drive-by attack last weekend, was released from the hospital Wednesday, his coach, Antonio Knox, said in a text message to The Oklahoman.
Hall, who is from Gibbs High School in St. Petersburg, was expected to stay at Bayfront Medical Center for at least a week after the attack Saturday, but is “doing great” and showing strong improvement, Knox said.
Knox’s only current scholarship offer is from Oklahoma, where his former Gibbs teammate Gary Simon is a freshman cornerback.
In three 2012 games, Hall had scored two touchdowns on offense and had a 12-tackle performance on defense.
Knox had expected more offers to being pouring in before the shooting, which cost the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Hall the rest of his junior season.
Knox said he expects Hall to recover in time for spring football practices.
