Hampton can stuff the run but he also produced 18 sacks as a junior. Additionally, he caused three fumbles for the year. Hampton likes the thrill of being the player making the big plays.
"I like being the dominant player on the field," said Hampton. "I like being the hitter and seeing the other guy's face and watching them run after you hit them."
Hampton plays left tackle when he sees duty on the offensive side of the football. The former soccer player attended football camp at Louisiana State this summer. He maintains a 2.6 GPA and will take the ACT for the first time in September. Until then, Hampton will not make a commitment.
"I will make my decision after I qualify because I don't want to say I will come to a school until I know I can," said Hampton.
