After allowing 130 points in the last three weeks to Oklahoma State, Stanford, and Oregon, the Arizona Wildcats defensive unit is going to be getting one of their better defensive players back: Adam Hall. The sophomore safety has missed the first four games of the season and most of training camp with an ACL injury he suffered during the spring.
From Wildcats Rapid Reports we get this information:
S Adam Hall, recovering from a spring ACL injury, has an outside chance to play sparingly at USC in the nickel defense or in long-yardage situations, coach Mike Stoops said. Hall's more likely return is Oct. 8 at Oregon State. He made 54 tackles last season and would be a needed defensive playmaker.
The month of September has been brutal on UA and the reemergence of Hall will at least provide some hope for the remainder of the season. While he likely won't play too many snaps against USC, having him back on the field and preparing for a start the following week against Oregon State is a good sign.
The Wildcats have shown slight signs of improvement and their schedule gets much easier after the road test against the Trojans. A strong second half could propel the program into a bowl game, even if it seems unlikely at this point.
