For four-star prospect Josh Hall, it seems like he’s been making the right decisions behind a patient outlook to his recruiting.
Originally a member of the class of 2019, Hall’s decision to reclassify back a year has seemed to pay off. To say his recruitment and his stock exploded might be an understatement. Overall, he has over 30 offers, 25 of those came since Jan. 1.
Recently, he announced that his recruitment process is still “110% wide open” and now St. John’s has officially entered the picture, offering him on Tuesday night.

Hall has made quite the name for himself at Moravian Prep (N.C.). The 6-foot-9 forward left basketball powerhouse Oak Hill Academy (Va.) and blossomed into a star in his own right, becoming a nationally-known recruit. He averaged over 25 points, seven boards, and five assists at Moravian Prep this past season, catapulting himself into the high-major Division I conversation and continuing to generate buzz for his continued strong play on the Adidas Gauntlet for Team Loaded (N.C.).
With his size and length, Hall provides teams with an element of versatility. He can play at the wing or be more utilized down low. He has a solid shot to stretch the floor, but he can also rumble inside and finish at the basket. Hall is great on the glass and tenacious when it comes to fighting for the glass. His play is smooth, and the way he is able to handle different roles and aspects of the game provides a lot of promise with the variety of ways he can contribute on the floor. He’s not boxed in to a single position.
Apart from St. John’s, fellow Big East schools Georgetown, Xavier, and Providence have also offered him. Looking outside of the conference, he has offers from the likes of Alabama, LSU, Louisville, Tennessee, Maryland, Kansas, Florida, Cincinnati, Miami, Virginia Tech, and many others.
