DaVon Hamilton

SCHOOL: Pickerington Central.

SIZE: 6-foot-4, 285-pounds.

POSITION: Defensive tackle..


POSITION RANKING: Number-54 defensive tackle..


WHAT IS THERE TO LIKE? First off, he has a great first step off the football and the quickness sets him apart from other linemen. Hamilton is also versatile enough to play offensive line, and could play guard or center if the Wildcats need him there. He only played defense as a senior and his film is excellent, so he has a lot of untapped potential at the position. He should be able to add weight and strength on his frame, and play the defensive tackle position at 310-pounds or so. Hamilton plays hard and takes to coaching well. A redshirt year could be in order, but he should be a productive player over the course of his Ohio State career. - Bill Greene.
