Fremont guard Dallin Hall announced on Twitter today that he is committing to play basketball for the BYU Cougars. This is a huge get for the Cougars. Hall was the highest rated unsigned player in the state. His college career will begin after he finishes serving his LDS mission.
A 6’3” point guard, Dallin Hall has the range to pull up from 3, and he also has the strength to drive into the paint and finish among the big guys. He can go up strong and dunk over smaller defenders, and he’s crafty enough to get around the bigger guys. His shooting form is solid. He’s reliable from spot-up and off-the-dribble, and he can even hit a mean step-back.
Hall led Fremont High School to the 6A Utah state championships just a few weeks ago. In the championship game, he led his team with 16 points and 11 assists. He’s a dynamic scorer that can handle the ball and make plays for his teammates. As a senior, he averaged just under 23 points a game to go along with 6.8 assists and 7.8 rebounds.
These past few days have been rough for BYU basketball. First, they were unceremoniously knocked out of the WCC Tournament, then their season was cut short after the decision was made to not have the NCAA Tournament. Hall’s commitment is great news, though. Once he returns from his mission, he’ll be one of the focal points of the team for as long as he’s in Provo.
