As alluded to yesterday on Twitter by the running back himself, Hall will be back for a medical redshirt fifth year and (assuming healthy) is expected to be very much in the mix at tailback and pivot in 2013.

In one of the worst kept secrets of the young offseason, Ohio State senior tailback Jordan Hall was granted a medical redshirt by the NCAA after a year that saw him suffer a bizarre foot injury stepping on broken glass followed by a tough knee injury that cost him most of the 2012 season. Hall will be back in Columbus for a fifth and final season with the Buckeyes just a year removed from being heavily lauded by Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer for his natural abilities and strong play in practice. It's expected that should Hall be close to what he was before, he'll be in the mix for snaps at both running back and the pivot position, utilized by Meyer at Florida with Percy Harvin and Chris Rainey.

Through a release, Ohio State also confirmed some other nuggets regarding the coming spring semester at OSU for the football team:

  • The Buckeyes began "Camp Marotti" Tuesday with famed Ohio State strength and conditioning coach, Mickey "Mick" Marotti. They can expect a rough winter, particularly for the newcomers.
  • Ohio State's first spring football practice will be held Tuesday, March 5th with the second coming Thursday, March 7th.
  • After that, the team will have a week off for spring break (March 11th-15th for Ohio State students) and won't practice again until March 19th.
  • That will lead up to Ohio State's 2013 Spring Game, which as expected will be Saturday, April 13th at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.
