Hampton, who transferred before the 2007-2008 season from Cardozo High School in Bayside, N.Y., is a 2010 recruit, a current junior.
Hampton struggled early on last year but seemed to become more steady as the year progressed. "We expect a big year from him," said Jaklitsch.
Chris competed this past summer with Gary Charles' New York Panthers AAU program. Since Hampton is an underclassman, he spent his time playing with the Panthers' 16 and under team.
This website had a chance to watch him play a few times over the summer at some AAU events. He appeared to be more confident in his game and more sure of when to take the ball to the rim.
