Jones County CC cornerback Javien Hamilton is firmly committed to Ole Miss after his most recent visit to Oxford

Jones County CC cornerback Javien Hamilton wants to make an impact early at Ole Miss and get into the rotation.

On his most recent visit to Ole Miss

"It’s always great to come back to Oxford man. I enjoyed my first time I came up. I knew it was home the first time I came up and visited. It’s just a good life up here and I enjoyed myself."

On being able to compete for a starting position right away

"I knew that task at hand when I first committed. I felt like it was a good situation to come in and play and I know with my skill set Coach Jones can teach me a lot. I just knew if I come up here and just get it done.”

How he handled the staff changes

"Things happen. It still didn’t affect my decision. At the end of the day I’m still a Rebel."

What was like to come out of high school with a chip on his shoulder and now get to play at a Power 5 school?

"It was kind of heartbreaking. It took me a little bit of time to get over when I was in high school. I knew going to Jones that it would get me better and where I’m supposed to be. I knew at the end of the day that I would be good if I went to Jones and got it done."

His 40-yard dash time and best attributes

"I ran a 4.36 at Southern Miss and my vertical was 41 and a half. My broad jump was 11-2 or 11-3. My short shuttle was a 3-9-3. Speed is the most thing and technique because you can never get enough technique work in. With that being said you can only get better from what it is. I know at Jones our strength coach got me where I was supposed to be. He’s been working with me since day one and I know when I get up here I can only get better."

How did the visit go with fellow Jones County teammate Markel Winters?

"it went well with Markel. At the end of the day he’s gotta put himself in the best situation with his family. So whatever he does I’m still with him. He’s still my brother."

How did it go with other cornerback recruits?

"The Rebels needs some corners and we’re just trying to make an impact and get into the rotation."
