2014 PG Devon Hall

Devon Hall, a 2014 PG from Virginia Beach, visited MD over the weekend.  Sounds like Turgeon continues to impress on these visits, as Halls father had this to say about the visit:

"If I had to grade the visit," said Mark Hall, "it was a home run. "We met with the athletic director, some academic staff and the strength and conditioning coach, who was an unreal, fabulous guy."

Obviously, this is great for MD, as we're already in close with some top level 2014 recruits with Hall and Dwayne Morgan.  Hall also visited Georgetown over the weekend, and plans to visit Florida and FSU as well.  But for a 2014 unofficial visit, I'd say that it sounds as if things went as well as we could of hoped for outside of a commitment.

  1. Pretty sure Turgeon was not on campus at that time. Makes what the dad said even better, considering the statement from him and the head dude wasn't around.

    1. That is correct. Turge was away. Hall will be coming back to visit later in the summer.

    3. That is great news. The staff was able to do so well with him to be called a home-run visit and Turge wasn't even there to work his magic. Now we just need him back for an official visit so Turge can put those Comcast spotlights on him to seal the deal!

    1. yeah we're in on more elite prospects in 2014 than we are in 2013, which is awesome.

      Phil Booth picked up an offer from Indiana though the other day, which sucks. I think they're trying to start a pipeline now that they took the old Paul XI (?) assistant coach that recruited Stan to come out there and play.

      I'm not sure if we will land Chucks HS teammates though in 2014, depending on how much Shaq/Chuck improve. If Shaq is looking like he'll bolt for the NBA after his soph or junior year then maybe, but if it doesn't look like that they may be too good to sit on the bench here to wait for the PT.

  3. Why does every Maryland fan think alll our guys are going to leave early and go pro.in the last 5 years nobody should have left early.where does it come from? A player isn't good unless he goes pro early?

    1. I didn't say I thought they should go pro, but the fact of the matter is that these kids think they should go pro because they get people in there ears telling them they'll make it, get drafted high, etc. just to try and get a cut from it.

      In the last five years, I can't think of anyone who should of actually left early to go pro, but Jordan Williams still did it anyways. He didn't exactly fail, but the jury is still out on that after one year. He was able to somewhat contribute to a pro team from the bench. Stoglin doesn't count, he was facing a year long suspension and was coming off of a ACC leading scorer year, so that is a logical progression for him (go pro or be suspended for a year? hmm...).

      This is also the reality of the game. A lot of these one and dones would never of went to college in the first place if there wasn't a rule forcing them to wait a year before going into the draft. I would bet you any amount of money that the likes of the Harrisons would never even be going through the recruiting process if high schoolers could still declare for the draft.

  4. The NCAA should use the same rule as baseball problem solved.

    1. It isn't the NCAAs rule, it is the NBAs Collective Bargaining Agreement that prevents it. The NBA governs the draft process, not the NCAA.
