Kentucky native Shane Hall pledged to Marshall while on campus for an unofficial visit.

Shane Hall, a 6-foot-8 power forward out of Prestonburg (Ky.) Johnson Central, pledged to Tom Herrion and Marshall on Wednesday.

Proximity to home has been a factor in Hall’s recruitment since he began hearing from college coaches. So it was no surprise to hear Hall’s father – Brad – cite location as one of the primary reasons for his son’s commitment on Wednesday.

“It's close to home,” the elder Hall said. “That's one thing. He has a chance to play right away. They have good coaches. Being close to home and having a chance to play right away we're big factors.”

“It's an hour and 15 minutes from where I live,” he added. “That's a big deal.”

Marshall assistant coach Mark Kline was the point man on Hall’s recruitment.

“Coach Kline I talked a few times,” Hall said. “I've always like coach Kline. I like the head coach quite a bit too.”

Hall and his father were on Marshall’s campus on Wednesday for an unofficial visit.

“We watched practice,” he said. “We were pretty sure [we were going to commit]. We wanted to see campus and we wanted to see everything.”
