PI EXCLUSIVE: 4-Star Josh Hall Talks New NC State Offer

Published

on

2020 4-Star Small Forward Josh Hall (6’9″/190) met with NC State head coach Kevin Keatts on campus today, and left with an offer from the Wolfpack. I caught up with him shortly afterwards to get his thoughts.

It went very well! I just talked to Coach Keatts. He just elaborated on me staying on top of what I’m doing and striving to be better day-by-day. He reminded me that NC State has a family type setting and it’s close to home. He also reminded me he is a winner.

I feel like I can fit in well in Keatts’ system because of my versatility and what I bring to the table.

The things I’m looking for the most in a school is a family type setting where I can get better as a student-athlete.

Hall was supposed to take his Official Visit to NC State the next weekend, but he ended up postponing it until the weekend of October 16th. Ever since Hall took his Official Visit to Raleigh, the buzz was that Hall was going to commit to NC State, but he ended up taking his Official Visit to DePaul on October 27th, who was also recruiting Moore.

Published

3-Star 2020 Guard Shakeel Moore verbally committed to NC State on Saturday night at the Phenom Hoops National Showcase, and he has now officially signed his National Letter of Intent to play for the Wolfpack.

Moore plays at Moravian Prep with NC State target 2020 5-Star Forward Josh Hall, and is ranked as the #7 player in the state of North Carolina according to 247Sports.

It was once thought that Moore would wait until the Spring, and it was also once thought that Providence would be where he landed, but both of those things obviously didn’t transpire.

Keatts and two of his assistant coaches were at his game on Friday, and the whole Moravian Prep team was at the Wolfpack’s game in Reynolds Coliseum Saturday afternoon.

Moore is the 4th member of NC State’s 2020 recruiting class to sign their letter of intent. According to 247Sports, the Wolfpack’s class currently ranks 14th nationally.
