Many top uncommitted prospects were on hand to watch Michigan's 31-0 take-down of BYU Saturday, but the Wolverines had several commitments in town also. One of them was Baltimore (Md.) Gilman senior offensive tackle Devery Hamilton. Watching his future team pound the rock all the victory took the four-star standout's excitement about the Maize & Blue to an even higher level.
“It went really good,” Hamilton told The Michigan Insider. “It was exciting to see Michigan beat up on a ranked team like that. It’s nice to see them in the rankings again. Great atmosphere in the stadium as well. I talked to Coach Drevno and Coach Harbaugh and they were both excited to have me and the other guys there. I’ll be back to Michigan for sure.”
Just as the Gilman star has watched the Wolverines rebound from their season-opening loss, his current team has done the same thing.
“We’re 4-1 right now and lost the first game by one,” said Hamilton. “Our kicker missed the extra point on college size goal posts.”
“I’m doing well and our offensive line is killing it. I think our entire senior class is full of leaders and I think I’m one of them. I’m definitely comfortable being a leader too.”
The 6-5, 265-pounder has been a factor on both sides of the ball Gilman, but he knows he bread is buttered on offense. Through five games he has definitely seen growth in his game at tackle.
“My technique, footwork and hand use has improved in my game this season,” said Hamilton.
