Hall Enjoys Iowa Stop

Rock Island guard Tyler Hall is in the beginning stages of the recruiting process. The Quad City Elite product got out to see Iowa this weekend. He talks about the Hawkeyes and the rest of his process in this premium story.

Tyler Hall burst on the scene with an eye-opening July for the Quad City Elite. The Rock Island (IL) guard definitely caught the attention of the Iowa coaches.

Hall visited the Hawkeyes on Saturday. It represented the first-ever stop at a high-major school for the Class of 2015 prospect.

"It went really well," Hall said. "I liked the facility and Iowa's style of play. What stood how out to me was how coach (Fran McCaffery) really made me comfortable and showed how he would make me comfortable if I went there."

The 6-foot-3 Hall heard from McCaffery how he would fit into the Iowa program and the type of education he might receive at the Big Ten school.

"I could be a guard that he would trust and he could let me make fast-break decisions on whether to set up the offense or run the break," Hall said. "With education, he said that he would back me on anything I want and he would help me become whatever I wanted after I graduated."

McCaffery views Hall primarily as a point guard.

"He says he wants most of his players to able to play more than one position," Hall said. "He said he could see me playing 1-3, but for the most part the one."

Hall recently picked up his first scholarship offer from South Dakota and he plans to visit the school in October. He took part in the Illinois-Chicago Elite Camp on Sunday.

"I am going to an NY2LA camp sometime soon but (campus) visits I don't really know yet," Hall said.

Hall said he's working with Iowa Assistant Andrew Francis on another visit to a Hawkeye football game this fall.

"I feel like I sit pretty well with them," Hall said. "I like Iowa a lot."
