UVa Football: Hoos add Bryce Hall to 2016 class

Athlete from Pennsylvania likely to play defense for Hoos

It's a busy time of year for football recruiting, as many of the top high schoolers in the country look to wrap up their process before their senior season starts. Coach Mike London and his staff have also capitalized on the end of summer camp season, snagging three-star Hasise Dubois' commitment earlier in the week.

This afternoon, the Hoos added another two-way prospect with size in Bryce Hall, a 6-foot-3 WR/DB out of Harrisburg, Pa. Hall's highlights are available on Hudl.

Hall played both ways for Bishop McDevitt High School, and racked up almost 1,000 receiving yards in 2014. At 6'3 and 180 pounds, Hall could fill out into a plus-sized wide receiver or a very intriguing defensive back. According to 24/7's Jamie Oakes, Virginia defensive coordinator Jon Tenuta "was blown away by Hall's camp performance as a cornerback,"suggesting that the Hoos see him playing on the defensive side of the ball.

Virginia was Hall's first FBS offer, though he had an offer in hand from FCS Duquesne and was receiving interest from VPISU.

Although NCAA rules prohibit mentioning recruits by name before they sign a letter of intent, London "confirmed" the commitment on Twitter.

Hall becomes the 20th commitment in the Class of 2016. Of those 20, six (including Hall) are listed either as defensive backs or athletes.
