Bree Hall Signs with South Carolina
14th-ranked player in Class of 2021 becomes a Gamecock.
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina head women’s basketball coach Dawn Staley announced that Bree Hall has signed a National Letter of Intent to attend the University and play for the Gamecocks. The Dayton, Ohio, native will have four years of eligibility beginning with the 2021-22 academic year.
“Bree is an incredible young lady, a disciplined young lady from a disciplined family,” Staley said. “We were first attracted to her versatility, her length, her ability to score, rebound, shoot and defend. All of those things checked off high on our list. We can’t wait until she comes to campus so we can put our hands on her and really start to understand how to further expand her game because she is a player who loves to ask questions and really wants to dig into everything; and we love that about her.”
A 5-foot-11 guard from Dayton, Ohio, Hall is ranked No. 14 overall in the Class of 2021 after a junior season that saw her pour in 21.4 points per game on 55.5 percent field goal shooting, including 38.8 percent from 3-point range. Earlier this week she was among the 50 players named to the watch list for 2021 Jersey Mike’s Naismith Trophy for High School Girls Player of the Year.
She took her team to the Ohio Division I district final in 2020 and earned Division I All-Ohio Second-Team honors from the Ohio Prep Sportswriters Association. Hall has scored in double figures every year of her high school career and lifted her rebounding average to 7.4 per game as a junior. Her Wayne High School squads have a combined 55-18 record in her three seasons on the team. Hall participated in USA Basketball Women’s U16 National Team Trials in both 2017 and 2019.
Hall is the first signee of Staley’s 2021 class.
