Texas is one of the biggest deliverers of college football talent in the country. Every conference in the nation recruits the Lone Star State. Seeing is believing when looking at all of the schools that have been in contact with center Robby Hamilton — 6-foot-3, 260 pounds, 4.9 forty — of Hightower High School (Academy) in Missouri City, Texas.
Northwestern, Minnesota, Duke, LSU, TCU, Purdue, Arkansas, Oklahoma State, Iowa, UCLA, Kansas, Michigan State, Stanford, Florida, Oklahoma, Georgia Tech, Tulane, Arizona, Michigan, Texas Tech, Alabama, Illinois, Syracuse, Hawaii, Colorado, Notre Dame and Kansas State have all shown an interest in Hamilton.
Hamilton's top six so far include Alabama, Oklahoma State, Northwestern, Mississippi State, TCU and Minnesota. He is open to everyone at this point, but both of his parents are graduates of LSU.
This spring Hamilton will be attending the Nike Combine at LSU on May 2, and the MSL Combine at SMU on May 22-23. This summer he is planning to attend Michigan, Michigan State and Kansas State's full four-day football camps. He will make one-day stops at Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas A&M, Alabama, Houston, Florida, Iowa, Arkansas, and possibly Minnesota.
Hamilton was named to the first-team All-District 20-5A, and was listed by Dave Campbell's 2003 Texas Football Magazine as a Top Underclassmen. He has scored 1260 on the SAT and 30 on the ACT. He has a 3.475 GPA on a 4.0 scale. On a weighted advanced academic 6.0 scale he has a 4.6 GPA. Robby bench presses 310 pounds, squats 475 and power cleans 270.
What are the criteria for his college selection?
"The football program has to be successful, the coaching staff has to have a good relationship with their players," Hamilton said. "The academics and their degree programs are important I want to major in engineering. The location and the atmosphere are important. I want too be comfortable where I go."
