Hall Commits During Unofficial Visit

Commitments have been coming frequently in recent weeks and Kenny Hall decided to join the mix, as he popped Sunday afternoon. The big man is headed to the Southeastern Conference.

Bruce Pearl and the Volunteers made Kenny Hall a priority and on Sunday it paid off. The talented big man out of Stone Mountain (Ga.) Redan gave Tennessee a verbal commitment during an unofficial visit.

"Tennessee's doing a great job (recruiting)," Georgia Stars coach Norm Parker said. "Pearl is doing a great job and Pearl's got a lot of electricity going right now."

"He was kind of leaning to Tennessee," he continued. "He had a good visit or two. He went to Clemson, Alabama and several schools. He went to Duke and had a great visit and when (Mason Plumlee) made an announcement he knew Tennessee was the place."

Hall had plenty of other high major interest. To go with Clemson, Alabama, and Duke, the 6-foot-9, 215-pound big man also had interest from UCLA, Florida, Georgia Tech, Georgia and Kentucky.

"He can be very good," Parker said about Scout.com's 62nd ranked prospect. "He's very long, very athletic; still a little bit raw. He's got to continue to work hard on his offensive game but he's very talented and very athletic."

Hall, who is No. 10 on the 2009 center list, is Tennessee's first commitment in the junior class.
