Palm Beach Lakes' Hall verbally commits to 'Canes

Palm Beach Lakes safety Gurvan Hall is heading to the University of Miami.

The four-star junior, rated as the 156th overall prospect in the nation by 247 Sports, verbally committed to the Hurricanes on Monday night.

“In the most humble way possible,” Hall posted on Twitter. “I’d like to let everyone know that for the next four years, I’ll further my education at the University of Miami!!!!”

Hall’s commitment put an exclamation point on standout day for the Hurricanes’ 2018 recruiting class. Earlier on Monday, Miami Southridge wide receiver Mark Pope, a four-star prospect, verbally committed to UM as well.

At 6-foot-1, 185 pounds, Hall was one of Palm Beach County’s most dominant defensive players last season, earning Sun Sentinel First-Team All-County honors. Utilizing his speed and jarring hitting ability, Hall anchored a defense that helped lead Palm Beach Lakes to an 8-3 record with an appearance in the Class 8A regional quarterfinals.

Palm Beach Lakes coach Al Shipman, who played running back at the University of Miami from 1992-95, praised Hall’s versatility and said Miami is getting a major weapon defensively.

“[Miami] got a guy who’s athletic enough to play corner,” said Shipman. “He come down and cover slot receivers but he’s physical enough to play strong safety and has the range to play free safety. He can pretty much play any position in the secondary. He hasn’t even scratched the surface of his potential.”

“They’re getting a tremendous athlete. He loves the game, he’s a weight room junkie and he’s a great kid. I can see him and [Palm Beach Gardens alum and Miami freshman safety] Amari Carter the next few years together [in the secondary] and that could be scary.”

Hall is now the 15th player in the Hurricanes’ talented 2018 recruiting class, which is currently rated as the No. 1 recruiting class in the nation by 247 Sports.
