MURFREESBORO, Tenn. – Middle Tennessee Head Coach Rick Stockstill announced today the signing of Chris Hale to a scholarship agreement. Hale is a 6-4, 250-pound defensive end from Dunwoody High School in Atlanta, GA.

"Chris is an athletic player who fills a need for us at defensive end," said Stockstill. "He has a big body, moves extremely well, and can play multiple positions. We are excited to get a player of his caliber."

A two-star recruit by Scout.com, Hale lettered in football, basketball, and baseball at Dunwoody. Hale, who played defensive end and tight end in football, did not play his senior year for Coach Jim Showfety due to a foot injury.

Hale, who earned all-region honors in baseball, will also play for Coach Steve Peterson and the baseball program. Last summer, Hale played in the prestigious 25th annual Area Code Games in Long Beach, Calif. The showcase featured 240 of the best high school baseball players in the nation. Hale was on a 30-player squad from the southeast.
