Class of 2019 small forward Malik Hall (Wichita, KS) announced on his Twitter account Sunday night that Butler had offered him.

Hall, a four-star player per 247Sports Composite, is the third 2019 hooper that the Bulldogs have offered. Hall joins four-star point guard Jeremiah Francis (Pickerington, OH) and four-star big man Trayce Jackson-Davis (Greenwood, IN) as 2019 targets for the ‘Dawgs thus far in the recruiting cycle.

Butler is the latest school to offer Malik Hall, joining Oregon and Oklahoma State who offered him in the past three days. Additionally, Illinois, Saint Louis, Northwestern, Mizzou and Texas A&M are among those who are pursuers of the Sunrise Christian Academy small forward. While he hasn’t been offered by them yet, Hall recently took a visit to Kansas, per his 247Sports page.

The 6-foot-7, 190-pound small forward originally hails from Aurora, Illinois, where he attended Matea Valley High School. Hall had transferred to Sunrise Christian Academy back in August 2016 and has jumped off as one of the best players in the state. He ranks third among all hoopers in the state, standing behind five-star power forward Jeremiah Robinson-Earl (Mission, KS) and four-star combo guard Zach Harvey (Topeka). He ranks 43rd among all small forwards in the class of 2019, and 139th overall.

As of now, there’s no indication of where he’ll go, but obviously, a player of Hall’s caliber would be welcomed at Butler in 2019 if the ‘Dawgs were able to land him.
