In 2007, as a high school sophomore, Wall was known as one of the best basketball players in North Carolina. His summer league coach helped Wall land an invite to the 2007 Reebok All-American camp in Philadelphia, where he would face off against the best high school players in the country. Using his combination of speed and vertical hops, Wall dominated the competition, which included future NBA lottery pick Brandon Jennings, proving he was not just a big fish in a small pond.
