The elite linebacker announces his decision on Wednesday at 11:30 a.m. at Carver High School in Montgomery. Hamilton's finalists are Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee. The Rivals experts give their prediction.
Mike Farrell, National Recruiting Analyst, Rivals.com: "Prediction is Alabama. I really like him as a player, he has SEC size for a linebacker, very thick and strong even though he's not the tallest linebacker in the world. Quick twitch despite his excellent size and moves very well laterally. I love the way he closes and he showed at our RCS in Birmingham that he can run and is very athletic. He's a great get for whoever he picks, can play middle or even outside in certain schemes."
Kynon Codrington, Southeast Recruiting Analyst, Rivals.com: "I feel Bama lands him. I think he is a tremendous inside backer. Similar build to Reuben Foster with great tackling instincts and tackling ability."
Andrew Bone, AlabamaVarsity.com/TideSports.com: "I've felt like it has been Alabama for a while. He took two recent trips to Auburn last week after a visit to Tuscalosoa. I don't think much has changed. Hamilton was very impressive at the Rivals Camp presented by Under Armour in Hoover. He is a very physical linebacker who loves to compete. His highlight film will remind you of Reuben Foster, but he doesn't like the comparison. He wants to make his own name which he has.
