CLASS OF 2014 INTRO: DEVON HALL
Devon Hall has had an impressive spring playing in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League with the Boo Williams 17U club. The Virginia Beach (VA) native that attends Cape Henry Collegiate School is a big and physical point guard who is quickly rising among the ranks of players in the Class of 2014.
While the Boo Williams 17U squad has some big-time players, such as leading scorer Anthony Barber, elite F Troy Williams as well as Allerick Freeman, Brandon Stith and more, who are all big names in the Class of 2013, Hall was a very important player in their EYBL success. Boo Williams finished strong and Hall provided a steadying influence off the bench at point guard for the star-studded team. He showed he could knock down the three-point shot, hitting over 36% in EYBL regular season action, he also had better than a 2:1 assist to turnover ratio. Their late run to earn an automatic invite to the Peach Jam next month was a highlight Hall will remember from his spring.
“The highlight was probably going to Oakland and going 6-0 n the last [regular season] EYBL session but we have Peach Jam so, I don’t kow, anything could happen,” Hall told NBE Sports today. “We are striving for the best.”
Hall is best known as an offensive facilitator on the floor, using patience and skill to command the offense of his squad. Those traits have attracted the attention of many colleges and he named schools such as Virginia, Maryland, Florida State, Georgetown, Iowa, Florida and Kansas as schools he likes “a lot” at the moment. Even with the busy AAU spring season Hall was able to make a few visits.
“Yeah, I visited Maryland and it was a great visit and went really well,” Hall said. “They have great coaching staff and beautiful campus as well as their gyms and weight rooms. I also visited Georgetown while I was up there and was impressed with it’s community atmosphere and the coaches as well as gyms.”
When the busy summer AAU season concludes he hopes to make a couple more visits on a southern tour.
“I plan to take visits to Florida State and Florida in August, depending on time” he said.
When the busy summer period concludes Hall plans to get back to work with his Cape Henry Collegiate teammates with one goal in mind for his junior season next winter.
“Goals for next season are to win [the] state championship again,” he said.
Big point guards are in demand and expect Devon Hall, at 6-foot-5 and 208 pounds, certainly fits the bill. Hall is certain to be one of the most heavily recruited point guards in the Class of 2014 on the East Coast and nationally. NBE will be certain to follow his path with Boo Williams this summer and Cape Henry this school year and be sure to check back here often for updates!
