Hamilton rushed for 546 yards and four touchdowns on 97 carries this past season. Hamilton was the Cowboys starting running back for the squad in 2005 and opened the season as the starting back this past season before an injury gave Dantrell Savage and Keith Toston the opportunity to pass Hamilton on the depth chart. Hamilton, 6-2, 225 pounds, originally came from Melborne, Fla., and was considered one of the top backs in Florida coming out as a high school senior.
As previously reported, walk-on wide receiver Zac Ross and senior-to-be running back Calvin Roberts both transferred to Harding University in Arkansas. Ross and Roberts were both released by head coach Mike Gundy to leave and both are on scholarship at the NCAA Division II school.
The additions to the squad for the spring semester are junior college All-American defensive tackle Tonga Tea out of Snow C.C. in Utah. Tea, who is 6-0, 315 pounds, played his high school football in Anchorage, Alaska.
Also, Deron Fontenot, who signed with OSU last February out of South Grand Prairie in Texas, is on campus. Fontenot is a safety/outside linebacker prospect that gray-shirted this fall while recovering from a shoulder injury. Linebacker Kenny Alexander of North McKinney, Texas, graduated early from high school and has enrolled for the spring semester at Oklahoma State.
All of the spring additions will go through off-season workouts and spring football practice in the upcoming months.
