Justin Hamilton, 6-10 SR C Highland (Utah) Lone Peak, has committed to Iowa State.
Hamilton was a bit under the radar this past summer, but he's one of the elite post prospects in the west for the class of 2008. Hamilton has a good frame, very good hands and feet, and he's an excellent competitor.
I spoke with Hamilton this evening and asked him why he chose Iowa State.
"I liked the fans and the school overall," said Hamilton. "The coaching staff is really good and I like the guys they have. I fit in well there."
Hamilton's other finalists prior to making his decision were Pepperdine and Weber State.
