In high school Robert played wide receiver, defensive end and outside linebacker, but he was recruited to only play the outside linebacker position by Oregon. Hamilton has been listed at many sizes, including 5'-10" and 185 pounds in yesterday's All-Star game program, but the truth is that he stands nearly 6'-3" tall and has bulked up to 205 pounds. He plans to redshirt his first year at Oregon, but his Westchester High School defensive coach predicts that Robert Hamilton will someday become a "sack machine" for the Ducks.
Robert is a well-spoken young man who also does well in the classroom. In this day and age of last second qualifying, Oregon fans will be happy to learn that Hamilton received his test score during his junior year in high school and academics are no problem. Robert plans to major in business or sports marketing at Oregon and is determined to leave with a degree. Expect Robert Hamilton to arrive in Eugene about July 27th to begin his college football career. He can't wait and neither can Duck fans.
