The nation is currently at a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic. This applies the world of recruiting as well. Pitt will need to replenish their secondary and the staff is pursuing several quality 2021 prospects. One of those players is Stephon Hall (6-foot-2 inches, 175 pounds) from Central Valley High School in Monaca, PA. Pittsburgh Sports Now checked in on the safety prospect to receive an update on his recruitment.
“I’m doing fine with the quarantine right now. I’m doing my best to keep my body in shape,” said Hall.
“The Pitt staff stays in regular contact with me. We communicate on social media and they call me when they can.”
Hall is generally rated a three-star prospect by the major recruiting series and has received twelve scholarship offers to date including Pitt, Boston College, Syracuse, Toledo, Akron and Buffalo to name a few. Pitt’s safeties coach Corey Sanders has been his primary contact.
“I like the Pitt football program. I think it would be a great place to play. It’s a great program. I have visited there before I really like it there. I’m looking for a school that will give me an opportunity to play and Pitt will lose some defensive backs.”
“I have set up an official visit to Pitt on June 5th. I’m looking forward to it.”
Hall registered 108 tackles, three interceptions and a fumble recovery as a junior. When asked about his strengths on the football field, he stated, “My length is a big advantage, I’m a big hitter and a wrap up tackler. My tackling ability would have to be at the top of the list. Pitt likes me at safety.”
