The Hamilton Trio

After getting an offer from the University of Arkansas, Texas High wideout Cobi Hamilton (6-3, 195, 4.56) now has 9 total offers with the Razorbacks and two others leading the way.

Texas High wideout Cobi Hamilton now has some pretty solid options and could soon have another.

The tough part is going to be choosing between them.

Hamilton (6-3, 195, 4.56), the son of former Lady Razorback basketball player Deborah Cooper, got an offer from the University of Arkansas on Monday and thinks he may be in line to get one from LSU later this week.

The Razorbacks and Tigers – if they do indeed offer – will join Missouri at the top of the list for Hamilton, who also has offers from Tulsa, Baylor, Louisiana Tech, SMU and Kansas State.

"I am going to wait and see what LSU does, but my top three are LSU, Arkansas and Missouri right now," Hamilton said. "I would like to make a decision before school starts."

Hamilton, who caught 29 passes for 726 yards and 7 touchdowns last season, attended Arkansas' one-day camp this past Saturday along with teammate Jacoby Thomas and learned of his offer soon afterwards.

"Arkansas offered me late Sunday or early Monday – I'm not sure which," Hamilton said. "I didn't find out about it until late Monday night when my coach told me. It made me feel really good and was something I was hoping would happen."

If he lands at Arkansas, it would be reunited with former Texas High quarterback Ryan Mallett, the Michigan transfer who is redshirting this season.

"That would be great," Hamilton said. "I think it would be fun to catch passes from him in college. I got to play with him when I was a sophomore and he is a great quarterback."

Hamilton, who is also a track star that will compete in the 200 meters in Junior Olympics next week in Detroit, left Fayetteville and headed to LSU for its camp on Sunday.

"I think I did some good things at both camps," Hamilton said. "The Arkansas coaches were happy and I hope the LSU coaches were, too. They said they were going to let me know something soon."

Hamilton, whose dad also attended Arkansas, said he has used the camps that he has been to this summer to get better for next season.

"I am working hard on my routes, my change of direction and coming out of my breaks the right way," Hamilton said. "I feel real good about my speed and my ability to help the quarterback by getting open."
