"Kansas is my favorite right now. I also like UTEP, North Texas and New Mexico State."
Hamm had the following to offer about his four leaders:
"Kansas is close to home, and I have family there," he said. "They like my size and strength. I plan on visiting there before school starts."
"I camped at UTEP, and I like the coaches. They have a good offensive scheme. They think I move pretty good for a big guy."
"I don't know much about North Texas, but they are writing me heavily and are interested."
"I think I would fit in well with the offense at New Mexico State."
Hamm, who spent his junior season at offensive guard, will line up at offensive and defensive tackle this fall. He says all of the schools recruiting him project him as an offensive tackle in college.
Although Hamm is anxious to reel in his first offer, he doesn't plan to decide until during or after the season. When it does come time to make a commitment however, he knows what he will lean on to help him decide.
"The most important factors will be the depth chart on the offensive line and the school's graduation rate," he said. "Distance from home won't be a big deal."
Hamm reports a 375 bench, 650 squat and 315 power clean. He carries a 2.6 GPA and scored a 21 on the ACT.
