Tennessee continues to go after some of the top talent on the recruiting trail in the 2020 class, and they’ve now extended an offer to a four-star forward who is getting a ton of attention lately.
Josh Hall is a 6-foot-9, 190-pound forward who plays for Moravian Prep over in Durham, North Carolina. Hall has added a lot of offers recently and has picked up a ton of attention from top programs, and he got an offer from Tennessee this week.

According to the 247Sports Composite rankings, Hall is the No. 111 overall prospect and No. 4 player in the state of North Carolina. Since the beginning of 2019, Hall has added offers from VCU, Wichita State, Cincinnati, NC State, Kansas, Virginia Tech, Florida, Pittsburgh, Texas, Xavier, Maryland, Georgetown, and Miami among others. He’s also now garnering interest from North Carolina.
Hall was originally part of the 2019 recruiting class, but he announced in December of 2018 that he was reclassifying to the 2020 cycle.
After a superb 2018-19 season, high major teams have begun to take notice of Hall. He also competes for Team Loaded in North Carolina in the AAU circuit. Team Loaded participated in the recent Adidas Gauntlet in April.
Hall is about as athletic as they come in high school hoops, and he’s also extremely versatile. He’s an exceptional ball handler, and he moves quickly up and down the court. Hall has elite length and has long, deceptively powerful arms that he uses to his advantage in rebounding. Not only is he more than capable of slashing to the basket and finishing strongly at the rim, but Hall also has a very good three-point stroke. He’s particularly effective shooting from the corner and as a spot-up shooter.
In seven recorded games with Team Loaded during the Adidas Gauntlet, Hall averaged 15.6 points and 4.1 rebounds while averaging 23.5 minutes a game according to Exposure Sports News.
Tennessee has a commitment from five-star small forward Corey Walker in the 2020 class already, and the 6-foot-7 forward has a lot of the same versatility as Hall. Rick Barnes and his staff have been targeting a lot of prospects with positional fluidity on the recruiting trail, and they’ll have their hands full with Hall if they continue to pursue him.
