Hitting a recruiting milestone Wednesday afternoon with a verbal commitment to Rutgers, Hallmon found a fit that makes perfect sense for him, said Cypress Bay head coach Mark Guandolo.
"It's a good school academically," Guandolo said on Rutgers. "He wanted to get away from Florida so I think it's a good fit all around."
The 5-foot-10, 175-pound Hallmon brings completeness to his cornerback role in high school, but needs to add weight and improve his physicality before contributing at Rutgers.
Playing primarily in a man-to-man role on the outside with Cypress Bay, Hallmon's biggest adjustment comes in the complexity of the Rutgers defense, Guandolo said.
"He's just a hard worker – a great athlete," he said. "He fell in love with the school. I think he can go and help them right away if he can learn [everything] mentally."
"I think it's a good fit," Guandolo said. "They do a lot of things that highlight his abilities."
When asked what Hallmon brings to the field purely as a cornerback, Guandolo concluded with, "Wow, just a great athlete. His cover skills are just phenomenal."
