Originally, elite prospect Jordan Hamilton planned on committing to a school on his birthday of October 6, but a mix-up with his PSAT scores have put a hold on his official visits. Hamilton, of Los Angeles Dominguez High School, still plans to make a decision by the early signing period.
Hamilton has still been able to visits schools on an unofficial visit. Most recently, Hamilton watched a couple football games at USC and the Trojans have moved solidly into his top three with Texas and Connecticut.
"I went to the game and enjoyed the atmosphere and hanging out with some of the players," said the 6-foot-7, 210-pound Hamilton. "USC is a pretty good school and pretty much equal with UConn and Texas."
UConn has also hosted Hamilton on a couple unofficial visits.
"I went to their elite camp, and then we drove up there after the Elite 24 game," he said. "Coach Calhoun is a legendary coach, and a lot of players come out of there and go to the NBA and make a good, long living playing basketball."
Although Texas, UConn and USC are Hamilton's top three schools, his list is not limited to just those three.
"I'm trying to get to Syracuse for a visit," he said. Coach Boeheim did a home visit recently and said some good things. Syracuse and Cal are right there behind my top three."
Hamilton also noted that he would like to visit Texas, whom he has already visited once, before he makes a decision.
"I plan on getting back there to Texas," he said. "They haven't found my PSAT scores yet, so things are on hold for now."
Hamilton is the No. 5 ranked prospect in the Rivals150.
Jordan Hamilton scouting report:
Hamilton is a physically imposing wing player with a multidimensional game which is effective anywhere on the court. Beyond his ability to score at all three levels, Hamilton is a tremendous rebounder and a lethal passer in the open court. His unique size, skill package and feel for the game make him a legitimate four position player.
