The Tale

Finally, what you've all been waiting for...an elite recruit in the 2013 class!

I know, he's probably not the first of this class, but undoubtedly looks to be the last. Hamilton was the fourth of four commits to pull the trigger after what was by most counts an awesome official visit weekend in Happy Valley this week. It was his first visit to the Penn State campus, after receiving the offer directly after the team's second week loss to UVA.

Hamilton visited most of the teams who offered him, and to commit immediately after his PSU visit sure seems like he, and the other guys, definitely liked what they saw.

The speedster comes to Penn State having won the Commonwealth District offensive player of the year award despite missing much of November with a broken collarbone. He played both wide receiver and defensive back for his high school team.

Outlook

Hamilton's been classified at different positions across the board, from wide receiver to safety, so we'll just stick with the general "athlete" term--it seems to suit him. His versatility means he could be slotted in across the board, wherever the need arises--in the mold of Justin King or Chaz Powell. He could be another option for a return game that will look to replace late-season starter Evan Lewis.

He's on the small side, but not DAYVON-small; look for him to pack a few pounds on when he gets the Penn State-prescribed weight training regimen. His injury shouldn't hamper his playing ability next year, and he may be good to go when the season starts--and if he does see early time, it's more likely it will be on special teams and/or defense, as, for another year at least, we're pretty okay in the wide receiver department.

Welcome to Penn State, DaeSean!
