Hall began his career at Division I Cleveland State, going 1-2, 11.36 as a freshman before transferring to NAIA Lee when Cleveland State announced it was shuttering its program. He helped the Flames reach the NAIA World Series last year as a reliever and did it this year as the staff ace, going 11-0, 1.52 with 115 strikeouts and 43 walks in 95 innings. Hall started putting it together last year, with his fastball jumping from the 86-88 mph range up to the low to mid-90s. His slider gives him a swing-and-miss pitch that at times is a true plus pitch at 86-87 mph, and he throws an effective hard curve as well. At other times his slider is flat and sweepy. Physical at 6-foot-3, 220 pounds, he maintained his stuff even as a starter this year, especially early in the season, though he endured a dead-arm period late in the spring. Hall's delivery remains unrefined, as do his changeup and control, and many scouts see him as a reliever, pushing him down to the fourth or fifth round.
