Ohio State Buckeyes running back Jordan Hall is "looking real good" in practice this week, says Buckeyes wide receiver Devin Smith (via Doug Lesmerises of The Plain Dealer).
Hall, who is nearing a return from from a foot injury that he suffered over the summer, could be Ohio State's starting tailback for Saturday's game against California if he is indeed ready. However, in order for Hall to be deemed ready to return, he'll have to wait and see how sore he is heading into the weekend, according to head coach Urban Meyer.
Hall, a senior from Jeannette, Pa., has played in 29 career games over three years. He has rushed for 814 yards and five touchdowns, while racking up 202 receiving yards and another four scores.
