When Arizona got a commitment from Palo Verde's Adam Hall, it meant much more than getting a good player.
Some people believe that Hall is overrated, due in large part to his level of competition. While we definitely do not believe that for a second, it still does not matter.
Even if Arizona was not that high on him, it still had to recruit him. With schools like Oregon, Cal, and USC going after him, it would have been pretty ugly if the Wildcat coaching staff would have let him go away.
Arizona took the correct approach throughout, letting Hall know that he would have the opportunity to play where he felt the most comfortable. Whether it is on defense or offense, Hall is going to have a chance to make a major impact.
In addition, the UA let him know that there were too many people wanting to watch him stay home. Sure, Oregon is a nice place, but at the end of the day it was not where his family was.
With his parents in the background wearing Arizona clothing and opposing coaches even telling Hall to go to Arizona, the choice seemed obvious.
Now Hall will have an opportunity to prove his critics wrong and considering how much he has been through already, the chances of that happenening are probably pretty good.
Hall's commit big for public perception
