Hall reels in scholarship offers

Devon Hall, a native of Virginia, is coming off a strong showing at the Nike Elite 100. He talked to Scout.com about his play there, plus the most recent developments in his recruitment.

When Devon Hall, a 2014 standout at Virginia Beach (Va.) Cape Henry School, landed in Saint Louis for the Nike Elite 100 in mid-June he knew what to expect.

Last year, Hall participated in the event, but didn't have the showing he was hoping for. This year was different.

"I played a lot better than I did last year in that," Hall said. "Last year I had some guys on my team that just wanted to shoot a lot. I started attacking more. That's my thing and creating shots for teammates.

"I knew what it was about last year," he added. "This year I found out that I basically go play my hardest and do my best. Playing point guard I just had to create shots for my teammates and make plays."

At the event, Hall played strictly on the ball. He showed off his vision and play making ability throughout the three-day camp and was easily one of the best passers at the event.

Hall, who led Cape Henry School to their first state title, is reeling in the college interest.

"It's getting a little wild," the 6-foot-4 point guard stated.

To date, Hall has scholarship offers from Virginia, Virginia Tech, Georgia, Maryland, Memphis, Florida, Wake Forest, Miami, Iowa, Oregon State and Missouri. He also has strong interest from Richmond, Stanford, Texas, Florida State and Kansas.

Hall recently visited Georgetown and Maryland.

"They were nice," he said. "I like Georgetown a lot. I like Maryland lot too. Georgetown is a cool school. It's not too big and not too overwhelming… With Maryland I liked a lot. They have a great school and coaches are unbelievable."

Hall said his next visits would be to Florida State and Florida in August.

Last week college coaches were able to start texting and calling more often. Hall was happy with the rule change.

"Some people might say they don't like it because it's overwhelming, but I think coaches understand that guys are being contacted by more than one coach," he said. "I think it's a good idea. I like it so I can contact with the coaches."

Hall is regarded as the No. 13 point guard and the No. 56 overall prospect in the 2014 class.
