Rancho Cucamonga defender Darren Hall chooses San Diego State

Rancho Cucamonga defensive back Darren Hall has committed to San Diego State, choosing that school from among 13 Division I offers.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder played sparingly last year, getting into games late when opposing teams were in passing situations but his stock rose over the spring and summer.

He was a first-team All-Baseline League selection the past season, recording 47 tackles, a recovered fumble and a forced fumble.

“I worked hard,” he said. “Even though I wasn’t a starter I was working like I was and I just tried to keep that mentality and stay positive.”

Hall attended a Rivals camp in Fullerton and a Nike Opening camp in Redondo . The Cougars’ showing this year helped as well.

With defensive backs Jaylon Redd and Thomas Graham seeing so much time on the offensive side of the ball Hall got more of a chance to shine and he delivered given the opportunity.

He made official visits to Nevada, Utah and Colorado. He took an unofficial trip to San Diego State but plans to go back there on an official visit next month.

A lot of factors helped him narrow down his list of choices.

“I looked at places I could see myself being, schools where the coaching staffs had been there awhile and one that were the best for my academic interest,” said Hall, who plans to major in communications.
