"I'm a lot taller than most of the cornerbacks that will be guarding me. Then I'm also quicker than the linebackers. I can move and I'm quick."
It's that height and speed that has coaches taking notice. The junior out of Ohio already holds multiple offers. Here he breaks down a few of them:
Ball State: "They recruited my brother and have a good program. They went through a couple of rough years. I love Coach Lynch as a person and a coach (recruiting coach and position coach). I like the program and keep them in high consideration."
Toledo: "My oldest brother went there. The coaches knew about him and wanted him to play, but he couldn't due to an injury. I know a lot of the coaches and a friend of mine, Desmond Marrow, plays there now. I like the program. I haven't visited too much. I think it's a great school and a great program.
Bowling Green: "I really like them because my coach graduated from there. Our program is friends with their program. My coach also played there so he has a little pull in the system. I've been able to watch some of their practices and I like what they're doing with their team.
Youngstown State: "They're our local school and are only 3 minutes from my house. They're turning their program around. The old coach didn't recruit people. They have a new coaching staff. Coach Wolford offered me. I really like the program. Like I said, they're close to home, which is good and bad. I'm not sure if I want to leave or stay around."
He also holds an offer from Ohio University. Hammond has also been in contact with Wisconsin and Duke.
"My brother is a receiver up in Wisconsin. I love the program and the campus. I visit them about every 3 weeks; however, they don't throw the ball too much."
"Duke is really high on the list. It's down south where it's warm. I am not a fan of cold weather. They're also starting to build a program and I like that I could be a part of the building a tradition. I also have family down there."
The quarterback will have a busy May visiting camps, as he'll be gone all of June.
"I'm going to visit Wisconsin and Duke soon. I'll also be at a lot of camps, (Ball State, Purdue, North Carolina and Penn State). I have to get all of this done early because I'm going on a mission trip to African the entire month of June."
Ideally, Hammond would like to commit before his senior season, but is not giving himself a set deadline.
"I'd like to make an early decision so I could buckle down with school and just have fun playing football. But you never know."
But something that will definitely play a factor in where he decides to go? The weather.
"As long as it's not freezing cold. I do love Wisconsin because it would be great to play with my brother. But I want to be where it's warm weather.
"As long as it's not freezing cold. I do love Wisconsin because it would be great to play with my brother. But I want to be where it's warm. I want to move far away."
