Josh Hall – Small forward
While it’s not always the case, we see players oftentimes commit to a program at the conclusion of an official visit. Whether a coach pushes them to pull the trigger or the player knows that no other school can compare to what they just experienced, it’s typically not a great sign when a player leaves without shutting things down (again, it’s not always the case).
After visiting Louisville the first weekend of September, four-star forward Josh Hall left without committing despite canceling his visit the following weekend to North Carolina State (which he has since rescheduled). This led many to believe a commitment was coming.
Since his visit, things have mostly been quiet for Hall in terms of where things stand with Louisville – leaving many to believe he had probably eliminated the Cards from his list.
Like Miller, Hall took to Twitter this weekend to announce his final 12 schools which fortunately included Louisville, along with a myriad of other power five programs.
Making his top 12 at least showed that Mack and company aren’t out of the running yet, which means there’s always a chance for a commitment.
As a junior at Moravian Prep in North Carolina, Hall went from being a fringe four-star player to one of the biggest risers of the summer. He’s a big forward at 6’9″ who has a great shooting stroke from both inside and outside, while also having the athleticism to guard multiple positions.
With Jordan Nwora most likely leaving for the NBA after the 2019-2020 season, adding a guy like Hall makes a ton of sense. The question is, does it make sense for Hall?
