Kent State senior forward Jimmy Hall has been selected as a College Sports Madness All-High Major honoree.

Hall declared for the NBA draft last spring but later returned to the program. He averaged 16.4 points and 7.9 rebounds per game last season.

Per the Kent State sports information office:

Hall, named to the fourth team, was listed on College Sports Madness' All-Mid-American Conference First Team. He enters the year after receiving NABC All-District First Team honors in 2015-16 and two straight All-MAC awards.

The Golden Flashes tip off the season Nov. 12 vs. Cleveland State, in Youngstown.
