Get healthy and get big.
Like coach Chris Ash comes with a plan, defensive tackle Darius Hamilton has one of his own after an injury red-shirt and limited spring campaign. Hamilton did not play in Saturday's spring game, but described himself as involved in approximately 80 percent of camp.
"I'm obviously not where I want to be yet, but I think by training camp I'll be there," Hamilton said. "... If you would have told me in January that I would be out here in spring and tackling in live periods, I wouldn't have believed you. Just to see where I'm at and know exactly where I have to get to, I'm really not that far. I'm excited about getting there."
Hamilton pushed himself into the 280-pound range under Kenny Parker's guidance, and sees himself even bigger in training camp.
"Hearing me say that, I never thought I'd be able to say that," Hamilton said on a 290- or 295-pound weight goal. It's going to be a brand-new world for me."
