Darrin Hall’s all-star tour will continue Saturday when the Pitt running back suits up for the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., where he’ll attempt to improve his NFL Draft stock.

He will become the first Pitt running back since Kevan Barlow in 2000 to appear in the Senior Bowl.

Hall set a Pitt record last season for yards per carry (7.5, seventh-best in the nation) when he joined Qadree Ollison to create one of college football’s top one-two running back tandems. Hall totaled 1,144 yards and 10 touchdowns on only 153 attempts.

Last Saturday, Hall led all rushers in the East-West Shrine Game with 77 yards on 12 carries.
