Hamilton plans to visit Arizona

Los Angeles Crenshaw shooting guard Isaac Hamilton is considered to be one of the best players in the west. While he is hesitant to name favorites, he admits that he likes Arizona a bit more than others.

6-foot-4, 175-pound 2013 Los Angeles Crenshaw shooting guard Isaac Hamilton is currently one of the top players in the west and, if the trend continues, he will have his fair share of offers to choose from.

Hamilton recently played with the Oakland Soldiers and although the move may not be permanent, it allowed many to see how Hamilton would play with more talent around him.

"It went well playing with the Oakland Soldiers," Hamilton said. "It is easier getting to play with a team that does what they do and then they give it to me and I go ahead and try to shoot it and do well."

Although there are plenty of schools recruiting him already, Hamilton is bound to get more attention nationally should he stay with the Soldiers throughout the summer.

For now, Hamilton is happy with the schools recruiting him, as they vary throughout the country.

"Recruiting is doing well," he said. "I have some schools looking at me right now, but no favorites yet.

"USC, Washington, Washington State, Arizona, St. John's, UConn, Colorado, Fresno State, Arizona State, TCU, and many more than that."

Hamilton may not have wanted to name a concrete favorite, but he did not shy away from the fact that there are two schools he likes more than others.

"I like Arizona and USC right now," he said. "I like the coaching and how both teams have players that improve once they enter the program."

For Hamilton, that coaching will likely be the deciding factor in where he chooses to attend school.

"I am going to be looking at coaching," he said. "Really coaching is going to be the main factor in everything."

It is no surprise that with Hamilton so interested in coaching, Arizona is working to establish a solid relationship with him.

"Book Richardson is recruiting me," Hamilton said. "He is real friendly and funny.

"He tells me what I need to work on in order to be ready for when I go to Arizona or any college."

Hamilton has already taken an unofficial visit to USC and currently has plans for at least one more.

"I think I am going to take an unofficial to Arizona sometime this summer because I want to get down there and see the campus," he said.

As far as a decision goes, Hamilton is planning to take his time.

"It depends because I am a year ahead, so I have been told I can graduate early," he said. "I would say I want to decide next summer some time."
