North Carolina high school hoops star Josh Hall headed to NC State

As recruiting announcements go, it was very low-key for Durham native Josh Hall on Monday night. He simply tweeted out a picture thanking the schools that had recruited him and pledging his hoops future would take place at NC State.

That capped a great weekend for Kevin Keatts and the Pack.

Not only did they dispatch St. Francis on Saturday, they added two significant building blocks for the future.

Hall's teammate at Moravian Prep, Shakeel Moore also committed to play at NC State over the weekend.

While Moore is a 3-star defensive specialist, Hall is the kind of player that can blossom into a star.

As we all know, in the ACC, star power is necessary to compete.

At 6'9'' and 190 pounds, Hall is highly skilled prospect who's been zooming up recruiting rankings over the past several months. He's rated as one of the best North Carolina prospects a top 60 caliber player nationally, according to ESPN. Keatts is undoubtedly hoping that upward trajectory continues between now and when Hall arrives on campus next year.

With Hall's commitment, NC State currently has the 5th ranked recruiting class in the country.

Duke's 2020 group is currently ranked 2nd, with UNC's class 3rd. This is a hoops neighborhood we call home.
