Coach Hall said, “I’m just proud of how we’ve built this program. I really am, man. Like we were going through it this morning looking at the older kids in each room coupled with the younger kids we’re bringing in and I just really think we’ve set this program up to do some great things over the next few years with these three recruiting classes we stacked on top of each other. But we’re excited about Dylan, man. I think he brings a lot of length and tenacity and shoot, man, he’s from George County. You know what I mean. He’s a freaking tough guy, so excited to have him. ”
