First Offer For Hamilton

Pickerington Central lineman DaVon Hamilton has blown up in the past month, following an appearance at the Best of the Midwest Combine in Indianapolis. He has landed his first offer and more could be coming.

DaVon Hamilton put himself on the recruiting radar with an outstanding camp performance at the Best of the Midwest Combine in Indianapolis. He was named defensive line MVP.

Hamilton, 6-foot-4, 285-pounds, played mostly offensive line last year at Pickerington Central, but projects as a defensive tackle at the next level.

Since the combine performance Hamilton has heard from several college programs, and he recently landed his first offer.

"I was offered by Ohio University," Hamilton stated. "They had me call their coaching staff last week, and when I spoke to them they offered me a scholarship. They are recruiting me as a defensive lineman."

"It was great to finally hear I had an offer," he added. "It made me feel wanted and now I know I have a chance to play college football. It is happiness and relief, but I know I need to keep working hard to get better."

Other programs have been in touch with Hamilton, who has visited Kentucky and Michigan State recently.

"I'm hearing from the two schools I visited, Kentucky and Michigan State, and also all of the MAC schools," he explained. "I will be visiting Ohio University and Toledo in the next few weeks."

"I have other schools that need to see me in camp, and I will be camping at Tennessee, Maryland, Ohio State, Purdue, Georgia Tech and Georgia," Hamilton continued. "I am going to go through the process and see if I can get the bigger offers. I know these schools need to see my size and see me work out."

With his film being on the offensive side of the football it's understandable schools will want to see Hamilton in person. With his size and quickness off the ball, it's easy to see Hamilton adding BCS offers once college recruiters can see him work out.
