College basketball is well underway and we are in conference play for most teams, as we continue to watch and check in on some of the Phenom Hoops alums in action. One player that we are quite familiar with over the years is 6’10 sophomore PJ Hall, who was a start down in South Carolina at Dorman high school and is now leading the charge at Clemson.
Last year as a freshman, Hall was able to get his feet underneath him and gain some valuable experience/knowledge. He showed flashes of what made him special and a Top-100 prospect in the country for his class. And now, he is taking full advantage of the opportunity at Clemson, posting some incredible averages as a second-year prospect.
As a freshman, Hall posted averages of 3.5ppg and 2.0rpg, while shooting nearly 50 percent from the floor in just 10 minutes of action. This year, Hall has increased those numbers tremendously, averaging 14.6pgg, 6.1rpg, 1.6apg, and 1.2bpg while shooting nearly 48 percent from the floor in almost 28 minutes of play.
It is clear that the Tigers are leaning on Hall and his game, as the work he has put in this offseason with his development and his body is paying off. The big man continues to show tremendous footwork, a physical feel on the court, and a tremendous skill set in how he can operate on the court.
It is great to see that Hall is really progressing at the next level and it is now looking like he is one of the biggest bright spots in the ACC… and he is only a sophomore. Hall is becoming must-see TV for all college basketball fans.
