Marcus Hall will redshirt
COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Ohio State sophomore offensive tackle Marcus Hall will redshirt the 2010 football season, due to academic problems.
Buckeyes spokeswoman Shelly Poe announced the decision on Friday night.
The 6-foot-5, 320-pound, product of Glenville High School in Cleveland played in nine games last season for the Buckeyes as a true freshman. He was expected to be a backup this season. He will still have three more seasons of eligibility.
In a statement, Hall said he was trying to look at his situation as a way to get better both in the classroom and on the field.
