Pat Narduzzi and Pitt were the first program to offer Stephon Hall, and it paid off.
The talented three-star safety from Central Valley High School announced on Friday that he was ending his recruitment and committing to the Panthers.
Hall becomes Pitt’s 15th commitment in its Class of 2021, third defensive back and second safety, joining Philadelphia native Javon McIntyre.
He’s the second WPIAL player to commit to Pitt in the class, joining West Mifflin defensive end Nahki Johnson.
Narduzzi and Pitt were the first program to offer Hall back in December. Before committing to Pitt, Hall had also received offers from Air Force, Akron, Army, Ball State, Boston College, Bowling Green, Buffalo, Central Michigan, Eastern Michigan, Kent State, Navy, Old Dominion, Syracuse, Toledo, Wake Forest and West Virginia.
Hall is one of the rising young prospects in the WPIAL and is a bit of an unknown to college football programs because he didn’t play as a sophomore and teams don’t have much film on him. Hall is a boundary safety that’s physical, has a nose for the football and can move with ease from sideline to sideline.
The last Central Valley player that committed to Pitt was a pretty solid get in four-star safety and current Tampa Bay Buccaneer Jordan Whitehead.
