Hamilton, who take his cues from the late Sean Taylor, considers himself a safety who rather than lay a lick, perfers to go up and take the ball away. Over the last two seasons, Hamilton has recorded 17 interceptions, ten last year and seven as a sophomore (many of which you can see below in his 2008 highlight video).
So how did Michigan State discover and offer a scholarship to a safety playing in Orlando, FL.
"I really can't say, I didn't know that I had an offer until I read it in the paper and then I went and talked to my coach the day after and he told me, so I'm not sure how they found about me," said Hamilton, who then recalled, "I think they were recruiting our quarterback (#13 Trevor Siemian) at one point in time and they saw me."
If that's the case, they got an eyeful as Hamilton made plenty of plays in the deep secondary for the Titans helping them to post their 5-3 record with two of those losses coming by forfeits.
"I really don't know much about them but I know they have a good program and its a good school," said Hamilton, who said he watched them - after he found out about his offer - when they faced off against Texas Tech in this year's Alamo Bowl in San Antonio.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pounder is rated the 10th best player on the Orlando Sentinel's Central Florida Super60 and is getting plenty of looks from Florida, Miami, Florida State, Central Florida and South Florida but so far, they haven't offered.
Still Hamilton admits, that he "doesn't like cold weather", so how can Michigan State get him to become a Spartan?
"They're going to have to persuade me," laughed Hamilton who said, he's serious about his interest in Michigan State and if something could be worked out, he'd be willing to come up for summer camp or a visit.
MSU could definitely use a ball-hawking safety like Hamilton in their secondary.
