Smooth point guard Devon Hall was rock-solid for Cape Henry Collegiate (Virginia Beach, VA) this season, averaging 16 points, 7 assists and 7 boards per game while helping the Dolphins capture the 2012 Virginia Independent Schools Division II state championship.  The 6’5″, 200-pound sophomore, recognized as a 4-star recruit by and, boasts five scholarship offers and could be on the verge of landing more.

“Florida State loves him.  Georgetown loves him.  He is getting interest from North Carolina.  ACC and SEC schools like him.  Villanova, [assistant coach Jason] Donnelly is showing a lot of interest,” said Devon’s father, Mark Hall Sr., who just finished his first season as Cape Henry Collegiate head boys varsity basketball coach.  Coach Hall confirms that his son already has been offered by Georgia, Miami, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Winthrop.

Devon capped off an outstanding season by earning VIS state tournament MVP honors.  He scored 15 points and dished out six assists in the championship game, a 57-47 victory over Virginia Episcopal School.

“Devon is the extension of a head coach,” Coach Hall said.  “His basketball IQ is through the roof.  He understands tempo, what’s needed, and those are probably his best attributes besides shooting.”

College coaches are recruiting Hall as a point guard, though he has the versatility to play the 1, 2, or 3 positions on the next level.  Older brother Mark, a senior at Green Run High School (Virginia Beach), signed a letter of intent with the University of Virginia for football, but Devon still has some searching to do before he will be ready to make a commitment.

“We’re going to take a couple of trips here soon.  He’ll get a feel for what he likes, he’ll go through the summer, and then we’ll sit down at the end of the summer as a family and discuss things,” said Hall Sr., who did not rule out Devon making a decision at the end of this summer.  Nothing is definitive, however.

Schools in close proximity, such as Georgetown, Maryland, Virginia and Virginia Tech, could get a visit from Hall and his family this spring.  The elder Hall says the family has been to UVa many times (and likely will return for UVa football’s Spring Game) because of the fact that Mark is heading there, but there is no question
