Four-star shooting guard Josh Hall commits to Nevada
Since taking over as the head coach at Nevada this summer, Eric Musselman’s enjoyed a great deal of success on the recruiting front. Two talented transfers in guard Marcus Marshall and forward Leland King will take the floor in 2016-17, as will a freshman class that now has three commits.
Thursday afternoon four-star shooting guard Josh Hall verbally committed to the Mountain West program. The 6-foot-7 Hall, who attends Genesis Academy in Lynchburg, Virginia, announced the news via his Twitter account.
Hall, who last October committed to Rice, joins point guard Devearl Ramsey and power forward Kenneth Wooten in Nevada’s 2016 recruiting class. And in Hall and Ramsey, the Wolf Pack have their backcourt of the future with veterans such as Marshall (one season of eligibility remaining) and junior D.J. Fenner among those who can serve as a buffer of sorts as the freshmen get acclimated to Division I college basketball.
Hall’s a Los Angeles native who this summer played for the California Supreme grassroots program on the Nike EYBL circuit. Hall averaged 10.5 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, shooting just under 51 percent from the field in those games.
