All-American running back Lynell Hamilton (Dec. 13 official visit, 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 was at his grandmother's last night, working on her computer on a project due today (Friday)! But Lynell gave us some of his time.
Lynell, what's your timetable as far as a decision now?
"My parents want me to take my last two visits in January. So I'm going to do that."
You had a Michigan coach in your home this week after Coach Hoke (Hamilton's Michigan recruiter) got the Ball State job?
"Yes, Coach Jackson was here Wednesday night. It was good to get to know him better, and he wanted to get to know my parents. And he said Michigan has decided to go ahead and wait for me. That they are willing to do that - to wait for me to take my January visits."
Lynell's older brother Leo: "He'll visit San Diego State and Alabama A&M, where I played."
Lynell: "My San Diego State visit is January 10, and Alabama A&M is January 17."
On what will you base your final decision?
"As I told you before, my parents will go a long way toward making my decision. They'll decide with me of course, but how they feel about a certain school will be very important."
So, how do they feel about Michigan?
"Well ... my dad wanted to go there when he was in high school. Michigan is where he wanted to go. He went to Utah State and played ball there."
