I think that was his name? One of the top ranked high school DE in the nation last year, from Don Bosco, is he getting playing time for Rutgers this year? Anybody know?
He has played in all of their games with 17 Total tackles. Also says he is playing DT.
Hamilton is playing DT for Rutgers and that is where he will play in his college career. They tried him out at DE and he just wasn't "getting it". As a 3rd down DT, he is effective... he has great hands and is quicker than pretty much any DT in the country. But that is about it... he is not an every-down DT and I'm not sure that he has the frame to grow into an every-down DT in the future. With Rutgers move to the Big Ten, it will only get harder for him as he will regularly face 300+ linemen. Right now he is about 260lbs with not much more room to grow.
For the bowl game, he shouldn't be a major concern.
We felt like he would grow into a defensive tackle long term and were a little concerned about his ability to get big enough to play inside.
He's a lot like Dee Liner is in this class.

For as highly as he was ranked he never stood out to me as much as I would have thought on film. I still was hoping we would have a shot with him and was just assuming my evaluation skills were weak, but I'm not terribly surprised he made a position switch. He seemed like a good kid and I hope it works out for him though, sometimes it just takes guys time to adjust, Corey Marshall comes to mind for us.
Seriously? You have a recruit named Dee Liner playing DL?

Hey guys just wanted to stop in and let you know what I thought about Darius Hamilton's high school film in case you were wonderi-
Sorry about the triple post before; sometimes when I post from my phone it tries to load the page and gets stuck and ends up sending through multiple posts.
