Biography: Three-year starter who began his career at Arizona State. All-Conference selection since his sophomore campaign. Senior passing totals included 67.2%/3560/33/14 after 69.2%/3957/35/14 as a junior.
Positives: Poised short yardage passer who is best suited in a timing offense. Patient in the pocket, remains calm under pressure, and does not make poor decisions. Possesses a quick release and immediately gets the ball out of his hands when necessary. Displays a sense of timing, goes through receiver progressions and has a nice sense of what's happening on the field. Takes the safe underneath outlet if nothing else is available, puts touch on throws and accurate with all his passes, effectively placing them were only his receivers can make the reception. Displays the ability to get outside the pocket, make the throw on the move or pick up yardage with his legs when necessary.
Negatives: Cannot drive deep passes nor power the ball into the tight spots. Not a stout quarterback who withstands the rush. Puts a lot of effort trying to get speed on throws which results in spirals that are not tight.
Analysis: Hall is a terrific field leader who uses all his targets, spreading the ball around the field. He lacks the great physical skills for the next level yet could very easily find a home as a third quarterback for a West Coast offense.
