Visit Dates Are On The Books

Vern Hamilton, an all-star at ABCD Camp, is also a standout on the gridiron. The Benedictine wide receiver and defensive back scored 20 touchdowns last year and hit up defenders for 1,600 yards receiving. "I have a lot of football schools recruiting me but that not what I want to play in college.

Point guard is what Hamilton wishes to play in college and he's certainly going to get the chance. Clemson, Colorado, Utah, DePaul and West Virginia are going to receive official visits from him. Local schools like Richmond, Virginia Tech and VCU will conduct in-homes.

"I have to visit Clemson next Saturday [Aug. 24]," Hamilton said. "On the 31st I'm going to Colorado. I'm also going to Utah. Coach Majerus is coming in [to his home] on the 19th."

With a diverse list like Hamilton's it look as if he's interested in leaving home. "Really, yes and no," Hamilton said. "I wouldn't mind staying here if it came down to it, but I am looking at schools that are a little further from home. I've always lived in Richmond."
