Hamilton is 6-2, 220 pounds, and told me the 40-yard dash time listed on Scout.com is incorrect. He runs a 4.6 in the 40 and not a 4.94 as has been posted. That would make more sense as it is doubtful that Oklahoma State would not recruit a linebacker that runs close to a 5.0 in the 40. Hamilton said he was a defensive end, but has made the conversion to linebacker during the off season and looks to play middle linebacker for Carter this fall.
"I really like the Oklahoma State program, and I really like coach Luper and coach (Mike) Gundy and what they are doing at Oklahoma State," said Hamilton in explaining his decision.
Hamilton added that he plans on attending Oklahoma State football camp the first week of June. He said he was recruited by numerous schools, but said Kansas, Baylor and Texas were the most prominent on his mind when he decided on OSU.
"I had a real good conversation with coach (Bruce) Chambers from Texas," said Hamilton of talking with the Texas assistant that is the former head coach of Dallas Carter. "It's just Oklahoma State is the school that suits me."
Hamilton becomes the second verbal commitment for the Cowboys joining South Grand Prairie safety/linebacker Deron Fontenot. The 5-11, 205-pound Fontenot committed to Oklahoma State on their junior day back in early March.
