Virginia lands in-state point guard

Devon hall 200 6 15
It hasn't exactly been a secret that Tony Bennett and his staff have been in search of a point guard from the class of 2013.
Sunday, the Cavaliers got their point guard for the class of 2013, even though he's coming from the class of 2014.
The No. 38 player in the class of 2014, Virginia Beach (Va.) Cape Henry's Devon Hall popped for the Wahoos on Sunday morning.
Virginia had long been considered the lead for the physical and skilled floor general, but whether or not it wanted to have him arrive a little early was up in the air.
During an appearance at UVA's elite camp, the offer for 2013 was extended and with his older brother Mark headed there to play football, it was an easy decision.
"It was up in the air about them offering me and needing a point guard in 2013," Hall told Rivals.com. "Once they offered it wasn't too hard because my brother is going there and it's a great school.
"The coaches are honest and it's a great fit."
According to Hall, making it in as a member of the class of 2013 won't be an issue and he's already taking the steps necessary to make that happen.
Most of all he's excited to play for a coach with point guard experience and in a system that fits his style.
"I think it will be a good fit with Coach Bennett; he played the point in college and the NBA," said Hall. "He will do a good job of developing me and I think I can go in there and make plays for myself and for the great teammates around me."
A four-star prospect and one of the nation's more natural passers, Hall is Virginia's first commitment and will move into the class of 2013 rankings when they are updated this week.
