2006 Focus: Ray Hall

Ray Hall, a 6-10 sophomore center from Denver, Col., will likely be recruited by high majors across the country. He tells us that three schools have caught his attention so far...

Ray Hall, 6-10 SO C Denver (Col.) Mullen, is a big-bodied post with soft hands and good feet. He's an effective scorer around the basket and he's got a good feel for the game.

Currently one of the elite centers in the west for his class, Hall has a chance to be recruited by national powers.

We spoke with Hall yesterday and asked if there are any schools that stand out for him at this early stage in his recruitment.

"I like UCLA right now," said Hall. "But I'm still pretty open."

Hall doesn't foresee an early decision. "I'm going to take my time," Hall said. You never know what's going to happen with coaches -- getting fired or leaving for another job."

Hall said he hasn't given a lot of thought yet to the factors he'll consider when making his choice. "Mainly, just a good school overall, one that's good academically," said Hall. "Location isn't really an issue."

This season, Hall is averaging 18 points and 12 rebounds a game. He plans on playing with Colorado Pump N Run in the spring and summer. "Dazz Thornton and Sam Warren will be on the team," said Hall.

A good student, Hall told us that his GPA is around 3.3 overall.

CAT TRACKS' ANALYSIS: The Cats have not gone to Colorado to pull a recruit, but that could change with Hall. It is a little early to see how he fits into Arizona's plans, but he's clearly a guy they will take a look at.
