Hall is a 6-foot-7, 255-pound power forward who plays for Speights Academy. In addition to Pitt, Missouri, Mississippi State, Georgia Tech, and Texas A&M also made his top five.
The lefty, from Cleveland, stated in an interview with On3 that he plans to visit each of his top five schools, and if he can’t get to all of them, Pitt is one of the three that he really wants to check out.
“A lot of people sleep on my passing, and I am a real high-IQ player,” Hall told Pittsburgh Sports Now in an interview over the summer. “I can get a lot of guys open just because I can drive fast, and my passing is really good. My shooting is good. Everything’s got to be worked on, but my shooting is good. My mid-range is good enough, I’ve got a good handle, and I can dribble real good.”

Although Hall never posted online that he had received an offer from Pitt, he now lists the Panthers in his top five and clearly has interest in the program.
Hall is unranked according to Rivals and 247 Sports but has seen his recruitment pick up since deciding to play a prep year back in the summer.
“Me and my father sat down and decided that I could still work on my game a little harder,” Hall told PSN. “One more year under my belt before I go to college, to develop my full potential and just work all day every day and play some more teams before I just jump into college.”
