A significant recruiting weekend for Greg Gard and the Wisconsin basketball program has taken an intriguing turn for the better. The Badgers will now welcome 2026 guard DeZhon Hall for an unofficial visit to Madison.

The 6-foot-3 sophomore from Indianapolis, Indiana, who already holds scholarship offers from Illinois and IUPUI, is widely regarded as one of the premier scoring point guards in his recruiting class. 

Hall joins Benet Academy standout Gabe Sularski as the second high-profile recruit that will visit the University of Wisconsin during the football team’s primetime clash vs. No. 3 Ohio State. 

Wisconsin Basketball Receiving Unofficial Visit From 2026 Point Guard Dezhon Hall.

It’s important to emphasize that DeZhon Hall’s recruitment is in its very early stages. However, it’s worth noting that Wisconsin basketball has secured a visit from a player who’s considered a potential top 50 talent in his class. That’s no small feat. 

Known for his abilities on both ends of the court, Hall is a three-level scorer, an underrated passer, and has the tools to be a solid defender.

One of his standout traits is his strength and athleticism, that allows him to slash to the cup with ease and draw fouls, leading to valuable opportunities at the free-throw line. Hall’s arsenal also includes a smooth mid-range pull-up game and a reliable three-point shot. In short, he’s a bucket. 

Adding to his basketball pedigree, Hall benefits from the mentorship of his high school head coach, former NBA point guard Jeff Teague. In his freshman season, he showcased his scoring prowess by averaging nearly 17 points per game. There’s a lot to like here for the Wisconsin basketball coaches on the recruiting trail.

Although Hall only holds two scholarship offers right now, it’s worth noting that he’s taken unofficial visits to Michigan State, Illinois, Ohio State, and Indiana. We’ll see how things shake out following his visit.
