Ja’Raymond Hall, a 6-foot-5, 282-pound freshman offensive tackle, has transferred to Central Michigan from Michigan.
Hall, a four-star recruit and one of the top 10 high school players in the state coming out of Oak Park High School, redshirted his freshman year at Michigan.
As a transfer student, he is required to sit out a season. He will have three years of eligibility beginning in 2019. He will start classes at CMU in January.
“We got to know Ja’Raymond well when we recruited him as a high school student,” CMU coach John Bonamego said. “When he reached out, we were interested because he will fit in well in our locker room and as a student-athlete on the CMU campus.”
Hall is the second transfer to recently land with the Chippewas. Earlier this month, Kalil Pimpleton, a 5-7, 158-pound wide receiver, announced he would transfer from Virginia Tech to CMU.
Pimpleton, a graduate of Muskegon High School, was the co-Associated Press Player of the Year in Divisions 3-4 in 2016. He will sit out a season and have three years of eligibility.
“Kalil, like Ja’Raymond, was on our radar when he was in Muskegon,” Bonamego said. “He’s a competitor and an outstanding athlete, and we’re looking forward to working with Kalil to help him reach his full potential.”
The addition of Hall and Pimpleton complement the 16 recruits who signed with CMU during the 72-hour early signing period from Dec. 20-22.
