S Mike Hamlin
6-2, 184, 4.6
Lamar High School
Lamar, South Carolina
Mike Hamlin has been known around the state as a hard hitter, all year long. Saturday afternoon in Rock Hill, he showed the North Carolina Tar Heels what most in the Palmetto already knew.
The 6-2, 185 pound prospect had several impressive hits during Saturday's Shrine Bowl. "It started off a little slow. Once I got the feel for everything I loosed up and played my game," said a humble Hamlin on the field afterwards.
Hamlin and his teammates worked hard on the practice field to prepare for the showdown with North Carolina. "Yeah it's been a pretty tiring weekend. But I guess only athletes played in this game and I'm one of them."
Just like almost every other athlete we spoke to this week, the Shrine Bowl experience is one that Hamlin will remember for a long time. "I loved every minute of it," stated Hamlin.
The question on everyone's mind continues to focus on recruiting, as both Clemson and South Carolina try to sign the talented prospect. "It's getting a little closer but hopefully I'll get looked at by a little bit more people. I guess I'll make my decision after my visits."
One team that noticed Hamlin's impressive performance Saturday afternoon was Virginia Tech and several coaches from Blacksburg met with the South Carolina star on the field after the game.
Is Virginia Tech one of the schools that Hamlin might like to visit? "Hopefully I'll be setting up one with them," stated the prize recruit.
We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding defensive back from South Carolina, right up through signing day 2004.
