Breece Hall Bio

Breece Hall

Breece Hall grew up in a football family. His cousin Roger Craig was the 1988 Offensive Player of the Year while playing for the 49ers, and his stepfather, Jeff Smith, played running back for the Chiefs and Buccaneers. Born and raised in Wichita, Kansas, Hall was a three-star prospect with offers from many of the schools in the Midwest except the powerhouses in the Big 10 and Big 12. Early in the process, Hall committed to Iowa State, after being the top prospect on the Cyclones' board in the 2019 recruiting class. Measuring 6-1 and 200-pounds, Hall logged back-to-back 2,000 rushing yard seasons after replacing David Montgomery as the Cyclones' feature back.

It took Hall a few games to establish himself at Iowa State his freshman season, but once he did, it was game over for Big-12 defenses. From Week 5 to Week 12 in Hall's true freshman season, he amassed 813 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. He went on to collect 20 career 100-yard rushing performances in 36 games at Iowa State. Hall also holds the NCAA record for most consecutive games scoring a touchdown with 24. He scored a touchdown in every single game during his sophomore and junior seasons.

Securing an All-Freshman Award and All-American honors in all three seasons in Ames, Hall was a Devy favorite, and the consensus RB1 entering the 2022 NFL Draft season. He was selected in the 2nd round of the 2022 NFL Draft by the New York Jets. Hall split time with incumbent starter Michael Carter for a few games in his rookie season, but began seeing the majority share of the backfield touches in Week 4. On 80 carries for the season, he had nine runs of more than 15 yards (11.3-percent Breakaway Run Rate, No. 2). He was also No. 1 in Yards Per Touch and No. 3 in Yards Created Per Touch. Unfortunately, it was a small volume sample, as Hall tore his ACL in Week 7.

The Jets 2023 season was marred by injury to Aaron Rodgers, but Hall was a bright spot. The 22-year-old returned to a limited snap share for the first four weeks of the season as he continued to recover from injury. From Week 5 on, however, Hall took on the lions share of the backfield work and finished the season No. 12 among backs in Opportunity Share, No. 1 in targets, No. 1 in Evaded Tackles and top-10 in Yards Created Per Touch.
