The athletic Maple Mountain product will bring BYU some depth at quarterback after his LDS Mission. Profile and highlights of Jaren Hall.

Jaren Hall, a 6-foot, 185-pound dual-threat quarterback prospect out of Maple Mountain High School in Spanish Fork, UT, has signed a National Letter of Intent to play for BYU. Hall committed to the Cougars back in November of 2014 and stayed true to his commitment throughout the recruiting process.

Hall is a three-star prospect and the 20th ranked dual-threat quarterback in the nation according to the 247Sports composite. His composite rating is 85.50, which makes him one of the higher-rated prospects the Cougars are expected to sign in this year's class.

Hall's only other offer was from Utah, but he would likely have had an impressive list of offers if he hadn't committed to BYU so early. He also had interest from Arkansas, Houston, Stanford, Texas A&M, Utah State, & Washington State.

Hall completed 53 percent of his passes for 1,336 yards, 13 touchdowns, and eight interceptions during his senior season at Maple Mountain. He also added 75 carries for 387 yards and four touchdowns on the ground. He is the son of former BYU player Kalin Hall.

Hall is an impressive athlete with the ability to both sling the ball around the field and make plays with his feet. While Hall lacks ideal height for a quarterback, he has all the other physical skills and mental makeup you want in a quarterback prospect. He is an accurate passer and has the arm strength to get the ball down the field and through tight passing lanes. His mobility gives him an impressive ability to evade pressure and extend broken plays. Hall has the potential to be an excellent quarterback at the D-I level.

Hall is expected to serve a two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints prior to enrolling at BYU. Hall will return and join the Cougars in 2018, Tanner Mangum's senior season. I'd expect Hall to be in competition for the starting position once Mangum graduates.

Here are some of the highlights from Hall's high school career:
