After cracking the offensive line rotation as a true freshman, Marcus Hall will have to wait another year before he can again play for Ohio State. The university has announced in a statement that the Cleveland Glenville product will redshirt.

Ohio State sophomore offensive lineman Marcus Hall will take a redshirt this season, the university announced in a release.

The 6-5, 321-pound Hall said he had not taken care of his duties in the classroom.

“Due to the fact that I didn’t satisfactorily complete my academic responsibilities, I will be redshirting during the 2010 season," he said. "I’m looking at this in a positive way – as an opportunity to get better on and off the field, to get stronger in the classroom, and be better prepared all-around for the rest of my time at Ohio State. I will still be practicing every day, not just to help myself get better, but to help my teammates get better.”

As a true freshman, the product of Cleveland Glenville cracked OSU's rotation and saw action in nine games. He saw 54 minutes of playing time and earned his first career start at right tackle in a home victory against Iowa. This season, he was projected to again back up junior J.B. Shugarts at right tackle but had also been taking reps at third-team left tackle during fall camp. At practice Aug. 17, his spot as second-team right tackle had been filled by true freshman Andrew Norwell.

A four-star prospect out of high school, Hall was the last player to issue a verbal commitment to OSU’s class of 2009. He is one of five Tarblooders on this year’s roster.
