Indiana Lands Tennessee DL Jhrevious Hall

Curt Cignetti and his staff have secured a significant commitment for the 2025 recruiting class with defensive lineman Jhrevious Hall deciding to join the Hoosiers. The 6-foot-2, 270-pound standout from Columbia Central in Columbia, Tennessee, made his decision following an official visit to Bloomington last weekend.

Hall expressed that his visit to Indiana met his high expectations.

“Indiana was everything I expected,” he said. “They have a great atmosphere, and the staff was fantastic. The players really welcomed me and the other recruits. My family and I loved it.”

Hall had previously visited IU for a Junior Day event in February and developed a strong bond with his future position coach.

“I love Coach (Pat) Kuntz,” Hall said. “He’s the only coach I talk to daily. That’s my guy.”

Hall cited the coaching staff and the defensive scheme as major factors in his decision.

“What made Indiana right for me was the coaching staff’s desire to win and change the culture at IU,” he said. “I feel like I fit their scheme well. They want D-linemen who get vertical and make plays in the backfield, and that’s what I do.”

Academics also played a crucial role for Hall, noting Indiana’s top-ranked business school.

“I liked that they have one of the top business programs in the nation,” Hall said. “I plan on majoring in business entrepreneurship.”

The feedback from current players further convinced Hall that Indiana was the right choice.

“I spent time with the players, and they said there’s already been a significant culture change,” Hall said. “After hearing that, I knew it was the place for me.”

The Hoosiers are recruiting Hall to play in the middle of their defensive line, believing he is an excellent fit for their system.

“They feel like I fit their system very well,” Hall said. As a junior, Hall recorded 82 tackles, 30 tackles for loss, 13 sacks, and four forced fumbles. He is ranked as the 18th best player in Tennessee and the 43rd best defensive lineman in the nation.

Hall chose Indiana over offers from Auburn, Duke, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Missouri, Ole Miss, Tennessee, Eastern Kentucky, and Tennessee State.
