Is Hamilton Still Planning Rutgers Visit?

Olympia High (Orlando, Fla.) safety Corian Hamilton told during the summer he would take an official visit to Rutgers. Now, the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Hamilton is readying to trim his list after playing in a big rivalry game this weekend. Hamilton wasn't saying a lot on who will make the cut, but there are two schools there who will. Check out what he had to say by coming inside.

Olympia High (Orlando, Fla.) safety Corian Hamilton will begin trimming his list of suitors next week since his focus is on Friday's rivalry game with neighboring Dr. Phillips (Orlando), with the schools a Disney World line away from each other.

However, two teams that will be making Hamilton's cut are Rutgers and West Virginia while Connecticut, South Florida, Illinois, Louisville and Middle Tennessee State are some of the other teams involved in his recruitment.

"So far, the schools I know I want to visit are West Virginia and Rutgers," the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Hamilton said. "The coaches, we have good bonds. I talked to them and they tell me how good it is up there, especially Rutgers, so that's why I want to go and see what they have to offer me."

Hamilton has not cut his list or scheduled visits yet -- although he is eyeballing West Virginia in October and Rutgers in December – because he has been focusing on the season.

However, the Titans have a bye next week, which will give him time to trim is list and concentrate on a handful of schools.

But one of the interesting aspects to Hamilton's recruitment is his desire to see other places. The only time he left his home state was for a basketball trip to Missouri.

"It can be both (scary and exciting)," Hamilton said. "It's more exciting because I'm ready to explore and see what they have to offer me up there."

Hamilton said his lack of traveling experience will not play a factor in his recruitment.

But recruiting is in the background this week as Olympia meets Dr. Phillips, which has uncommitted four-star running back Dee Hart and defensive backs Hasean Clinton-Dix (Alabama commit) and Roderick Ryles (Arkansas commit).

"The season is going good," Hamilton said. "We're undefeated and we're getting better as a team and looking forward to this big game Friday. It's our rivalry game. They're about two minutes away from us. The atmosphere and the pride at stake, that's all the game is really for …pride. It's a real tough game."
