Iowa State stopped in to see Clairton (Pa.) High receiver Noah Hamlin during the spring evaluation period as the staff continues to build a relationship.
The 5-foot-11, 175-pound Hamlin, who holds offers from the likes of Boston College, UCONN, Cincinnati, Toledo, Bowling Green and others in addition to Iowa State, would be paired with fellow 2017 receiver commits Joshua Johnson and Matthew Eaton if he were to commit to the Cyclones.
“They like me at slot,” Hamlin said. “They said I was a really dynamic player.”
Hamlin, who is a shifty receiver that runs a 4.50 40-yard dash, would compliment the 6-foot-4 Eaton and the lengthy Johnson (who has a 6-foot-1 wingspan). Both are expected to spend more time on the outside.
During the spring, Hamlin’s recruitment has continued to heat up with the likes of Wisconsin, Stanford, Duke, Michigan and Michigan State touching base. Hamlin will now use the summer to get a closer look at prospective schools.
“I’m not doing any camps," he said. “But I’m probably going to visit Boston College, Toledo, Temple, Cincinnati, Bowling Green and I’ll try to get out to Iowa State as well.”
Hamlin expects to wait until after his senior season to make a decision to see what schools may offer this fall. For now, the Iowa State offer is a significant one.
“That’s a real big offer in my book,” Hamlin said. “That’s Big 12, so they play a lot of big colleges, so that’s a real big offer. I talk to them a lot.”
