"I've got offers from Virginia, NC State, Syracuse, Clemson, Tennessee, Georgia, Pittsburgh and Boston College," says Hamilton.
The big thing for Hamilton is playing time. He wants to play as a true freshman, and that
could be a potential road block for the Tigers with the stockpile of talent that has landed
in Clemson over the last two seasons.
Hamilton's motto is being able to shutdown the opposing team's best wideout. Marcus is currently able bench 245 lbs, so he has the strength to match his mad cover skills. Last
season he recorded 2 INTs and broke up 11 passes in a conference that features more running teams than passing.
With a 3.0 GPA, Hamilton projects to be a full qualifier.
Sources close to Marcus Hamilton seem to think that Virginia could quietly be in the lead for his services, as one of his teammates has already committed to the Cavs.
As one of the best defensive backs in the southeast, a lot of things can happen between now
and signing day. The Tigers have already confirmed an offer, and it appears as though
Tommy Bowden will draw from more talent out of state this year as opposed to the last couple of recruiting seasons, so don't rule out this talented student athlete quite yet. We'll keep you posted on Marcus Hamilton's performance throughout the season as well as any official leaders that emerge from the pack.
