ASU landed one of the Grand Canyon State’s top prospects when Max Hall (6-2, 185, 4.55) from Mesa (Ariz.) Mountain View decided to throw his hat into the ring with the Sun Devils.
Hall has ASU bloodlines that go back two generations. His grandfather is former Arizona State Sun Devil great Whizzer White and his uncle is former ASU and Dallas Cowboy standout Danny White.
Hall chose ASU over other offers from Washington State, BYU, Utah, and Northwestern.
“All my life I’ve been an ASU fan and I’ve always wanted to play in the Pac10,” Hall said. “When I was offered by all the other schools I went and took unofficial visits just to make sure that ASU was the place for me.”
“Then I took a month off,” Hall said. “Just this past weekend I sat down with my Dad and we went over the pros and cons of every school. I ended up liking ASU best.”
“I really liked the ASU coaching staff,” Hall said. “Especially head coach (Dirk) Koetter.”
“There was no pressure on me to attend ASU just because my grandfather (Wilford “Whizzer” White) and my uncle (Danny White) attended the school,” Hall said. “It is kind of nice that I will play at the same school that my grandpa and uncle played.”
Hall decided to end his recruitment so that he can concentrate on his senior season.
Hall had a 54% completion percentage for his junior season, while throwing for 2,384 yards and 26 touchdowns.
Hall was named Area Offensive Player of the Year and was second-team all-state as a junior. He was also one of five finalists for the Ed Doherty award given to the state's most outstanding player.
Hall is of the LDS faith and will take his mission.
