Hannah attended Valley View High School, where he played offensive tackle. As a senior, he was selected the Ohio Division III high school lineman of the year. He lettered in basketball, setting a school record of 23 rebounds in one game. He also practiced track, recording 153' 6' in the discus throw.
He accepted a football scholarship from Michigan State University. He became the starter at left tackle in the second game of his redshirt freshman season against the University of Notre Dame and would never relinquish the position. As a junior, he didn't allow a sack during the season.
He was a four-year starter at left tackle and was a key player in the Spartans potent ground attack. He tied the school record for most starts (44) by an offensive lineman, while receiving second-team All-Big Ten honors as a junior and senior.
As a rookie, he suffered a torn lateral meniscus and a sprained posterior cruciate ligament in his right knee during the first preseason game, and was placed on the injured reserve list on August 27. The next year, he came back out of shape and overweight, which created tension with his coaches, that eventually led to his decision to quit the team during preseason on July 19 and announce his retirement.
