If you are Boise State head coach Leon Rice or a member of his staff, you had to figure last weekend's game against Oregon State would provide a great atmosphere for official visitors. Yesterday, the weekend started paying off when guards Michael Thompson and Derrick Marks committed after their official visits. As it turns out, they've got a big man to throw the ball to now as Darrious Hamilton picked the Broncos as well.
Playing alongside highly regarded Jonathan Holmes at San Antonio (Texas) Antonian and during the summer with the San Antonio RoHawks, Hamilton went a little under the radar.
Standing 6-foot-8, he can run, is a fine athlete and has a body that can be built upon. For now, he's more of a natural center but Boise was able to sell him on transitioning into a role of a power forward.
A three-star prospect, Hamilton was scheduled to visit Missouri State this weekend.
