Corey Evans, National Basketball Analyst over at Rivals.com, believes that the stars are aligning for NC State to land Moravian Prep teammates 5-Star Forward Josh Hall and 3-Star Guard Shakeel Moore.
Keep an eye onJosh Hall, because the five-star could be nearing his commitment. Alabama, DePaul and Louisville remain involved, but NC State has the greatest chance of landing Hall. The Wolfpack have invested a whole lot into his recruitment but, if there is one program to keep an eye on it is DePaul, which was the final program to host him for an official visit two weeks ago.
NC State already holds the commitment from top 50 guard Cam Hayes, but Shakeel Moore would seem to be his ideal complement in the backcourt. Moore is a quality scorer who would fit well alongside a high-level facilitator like Hayes. DePaul, Ole Miss and Providence are also involved, but the stars are aligning for the Moravian duo to continue on to NC State next season. (Rivals)
Hall has taken Official Visits to Louisville, NC State, and DePaul at the end of October. The Wolfpack seem to be in the driver seat in Hall’s recruitment.
NC State offered Moore back in June, and he included the Wolfpack in his Final 7 schools at the end of August. Moore has taken Official Visits to Providence and DePaul thus far.
247Sports ranks Hall as the #2 player in the state of North Carolina, and Moore as the #7 player. The Wolfpack’s 2020 recruiting class already has two other players ranked in the Top-10 in the state inn #4 Cam Hayes (PG) & #8 Nick Farrar (F).
247Sports already ranks NC State’s class 15th nationally, and the addition of Hall and Moore would surely propel it into the Top-10.
Honestly, Hall could be making his college decision this weekend. Back on October 24th, Evan Daniels reported that his father said it would be made within two weeks time.
