Nevada’s Josh Hall To Transfer, Puts Wolf Pack At Scholarship Limit
The hero in Nevada’s comeback NCAA Tournament win over Cincinnati has elected to transfer
Hall will seek a new program, placing Nevada back at the scholarship limit
Nevada wing Josh Hall announced Friday that he has elected and received permission to transfer from the university, according to reports.
Hall, who will be a junior this fall, averaged 6.9 points and 3.9 rebounds per game and started in eight appearances last season. His most notable moment, of course, was sinking the game-winning basket in Nevada’s 22-point comeback win over Cincinnati in the NCAA Tournament’s second round.
With the return of Caleb and Cody Martin as well as Jordan Caroline, Nevada exceeded the NCAA scholarship limit, meaning one Wolf Pack player would have to transfer or move to walk-on status for the upcoming season.
Hall is a former three-star recruit out of Houston, Texas. He received offers from Virginia Tech, Cincinnati, UNLV, Oklahoma State, Wake Forest, and others out of high school. If Hall does elect to transfer, he will be forced to sit out the 2018-19 season and redshirt, becoming eligible again for the 2019-20 season.
