Scout dives in to dissect the skill set of new Miami Hurricanes commit and 2018 Scout 300 safety, Gurvan Hall.

Name: Gurvan Hall

Position: Safety

Committed to: Miami (Fl) Hurricanes

Height/Weight: 5-foot-10.5, 173 Pounds

Hometown/School: West Palm Beach (Fla.) Palm Beach Lakes

Ranking: Nation's 175th-Ranked Player Overall | Nation's 17th-Ranked Safety | South's Sixth-Ranked Safety | Florida's Fourth-Ranked Safety

Evaluation Notes:

Hall is a two-way standout that also turns heads at wide receiver, but projects best as an instinctive safety who bursts out of his breaks and comes downhill in a hurry. He plays with toughness, and is a headhunter who really lights up pass catchers. Receivers are always aware of Hall's location on the field.

Hall also flashes impressive range when patrolling the back end of the defense. He can continue to work on high-pointing, but does a nice job of making himself available by timing his jump and squaring up to the football. Hall's strong hands are obvious and not much of a surprise, given his ability across the line of scrimmage at receiver.

Hall does a good job of anticipating by meeting offensive players to the ball, but also possesses the athletic ability to rack up a ton of yardage after the interception. He shows no problem changing direction, but can focus on becoming more smooth in his backpedal. Hall does not have that prototypical size, but certainly makes up for it with his physical style of play. This young man is a highlight waiting to happen.

There is a lot to like with Hall, who is armed with roughly 30 offers overall. Miami entered the day with top-ranked recruiting class on Scout, and has since reeled in a pair of Scout 300 commitments from Hall and wide receiver Mark Pope.
