"I have a visit to Mississippi State on January 10th," said Hampton. "I'm going to Ole Miss the weekend of the 17th, to Florida on the 24th, and Tennessee on the 31st. I'm still looking at Alabama, and they'll probably get my last visit. Coaches from Florida and Ole Miss have made in-home visits so far."
When asked if it was getting easier or harder to make a decision now that he is getting down to crunch time, Hampton's answer was easy, "Harder". Expect this talented defensive tackle prospect to take most if not all of his visits before making a decision.
He has a talented teammate and good friend in defensive end Quentin Groves. Like Hampton, Groves has set up four official visits.
"I will visit Mississippi State (1-10), Tennessee (1-17), Georgia (1-24) and Florida (1-31)," said Hampton. "Right now, I am open."
Hampton recorded 19 sacks this season and Groves had 21. Groves won the sack battle.
"I am talking smack now. He think they (the coaches) gave me two extra."
