North Texas picks up three-star QB

Three-star quarterback Javia Hall saw his stock rise quickly this spring after a terrific performance at the Elite 11 regional workout at TCU. Shortly after that performance he picked up offers from Wyoming and then North Texas. On Saturday, Hall decided to commit to North Texas.

One of the big reasons for Hall's early commitment was the respect he has for head coach Todd Dodge and the future of the program.

"I had a chance to take an unofficial visit before spring practice," Hall said. "And I got a chance to meet Todd Dodge and we talked about the spring and how things were supposed to go. I'm already a fan of Todd Dodge and the things that he's done in the past and I feel like I'm a perfect fit for that system."

Coach Dodge and the North Texas coaching staff also feel that Hall will fit in perfectly with what they are trying to accomplish offensively.

"Coach Todd Dodge, one thing that he stated is that I'm very accurate and that's one thing he looks for in his quarterbacks," he said. "They feel like I'm accurate and I am a really accurate quarterback. They want their quarterback to be able to rush for about 50 yards per game and I can do that too."

After splitting time as the starting quarterback during his junior season, the recruiting process is still young for Hall but he still felt like the timing was right for a decision.

"This recruiting game, it's kind of crazy," he said. "Especially in the position that I play, quarterback. Most schools only sign one quarterback and then schools send out about 12 offers to the quarterback position and only sign one so I just want to solidify my four years in college.

"I felt a good vibe from [the UNT coaching staff]. My coaches, my family, we all talked about it. It's a good decision I made. I love their system. It fits me. Some of the things we do at Skyline are similar to what North Texas does. I feel great."
