We are heading out to see All-American running back Lynell Hamilton (Stanford Nike stats: 6-0, 195 lbs., 4.25 shuttle, 28-inch vertical jump ... 4.4 in the 40, 3.0 GPA) from Stockton, Calif., Edison. Hamilton is not easy to reach these days, but we caught up with him last night.
You've had an injury -- what is it?
"It's a hip pointer. It still bothers me a little. I missed one game, and I'd say I was 70% last weekend."
Tell us about the latest status of your official visits.
"I visited Oregon a couple weeks ago ... I'll take the rest of my visits after the season. I'll visit Michigan and Miami for sure. I'll set the visits in November, when my season is over. I'll also take two more -- I don't know who yet."
"Coach Hoke calls me regularly for Michigan."
Stockton Edison is 7-0 now, defeating Stockton Stagg 26-2 this past weekend. In the five games before his injury Hamilton rushed for 672 yards and seven touchdowns on just 53 carries. He also had 10 receptions for 124 yards and two scores. He sat out game six, and was going to sit out game seven as well and make his official visit to Michigan (last weekend, for the Iowa game ... ). Instead he suited up and played a little in the victory over Stagg, gaining 22 yards.
We will have a report for you next week on Edison's game this weekend, at the powerful Stockton Lincoln.
"Come on over and see us. We'll see you there."
