Fla. Safety Corian Hamilton High on Rutgers

One of the many talented players Rutgers is recruiting at Olympia High (Orlando, Fla.) is safety Corian Hamilton, who is expressing strong interest in the Scarlet Knights. During an interview with ScarletReport.com, Hamilton said "I see that as a perfect fit for me." Find out what Hamilton was talking about, and what school he is hearing from the most these days.

Olympia High (Orlando, Fla.) safety Corian Hamilton's offer list reached double digits this month, and Florida, Alabama, Ole Miss, South Florida, Illinois and Michigan State all passed through the school's doors this spring.

However, one school Hamilton is eager to have visit is scheduled to stop by this week.

"Rutgers is coming Monday,'' the 6-foot-2, 213-pound Hamilton said.

The Scarlet Knights offered Hamilton in February, and immediately it became a school in which he was attracted to.

"Yes, I'm interested in Rutgers, but I don't know much about them,'' Hamilton said. "Last year I saw a couple of their games, and I like the style their defense plays. It was something that caught onto me, and I was like, ‘I could see myself at a school like that.' ‘'

Hamilton likes the Scarlet Knights' aggressive defensive approach, which he believes suits his game coming up toward the line of scrimmage from the secondary.

"That is something I like to do, attacking and getting after people,'' Hamilton said. "I see that as a perfect fit for me.''

The school he is hearing the most is South Florida.

"I hear from USF a lot,'' Hamilton said. "I like it a lot. I like the facilities, their style of play, I like the recruiting coach, coach (Todd) Fitch.''

USF, Purdue, Mississippi, Michigan State, Washington State, Illinois and Central Florida are among the schools to offer Hamilton, who will major in sports administration.

His offers are to play either safety or linebacker, although he prefers to remain in the secondary.

"I'm looking for a school that fits me on and off the field, a school that will give me a backup plan if I don't succeed in football,'' Hamilton said. "If I don't make it to the NFL, I always want to be around sports.''
