Brown, Hamilton getting big attention

The talent doesn't stop at Cedar Hill (Texas) High School after Texas commit and defensive tackle Jarvis Humphrey.
Coach Joey McGuire has plenty of other talented prospects picking up scholarship offers with the spring winding down this week. Cornerback prospect Greg Brown is quickly adding to his offer list seemingly by the week. Just over the last few days, he's received new scholarship offers from the likes of Missouri, Arkansas, and Virginia to go along with others from Buffalo, Rice, SMU, Tulsa, and others.
"He's got good tape, but coaches coming out to see him now and noticing that he's a year older, stronger, and faster, that has really been the difference," McGuire said. "He's just having a really good spring."
Already qualified, Brown is also staying pretty humble throughout the recruiting process and isn't ready to name a favorite school yet.
"I love telling him about scholarship offers because he's wowed by it," McGuire said. "The first time he got an offer, he was shocked. I said, 'Don't be shocked, because you're going to have a bunch more.' He's almost surprised by it every time one comes and it's really exciting."
With several other top defensive backs leaving for the Division I level over the last several years, McGuire says Brown best compares to 2007 Nebraska signee Anthony Blue.
"If you race them head to head, Anthony might have more straight on speed, but Greg has great ball skills and better hands," McGuire said. "They're both in that 5-foot-11, 6-foot range, they're real physical, both of them could possibly play safety if they had too."
Athlete James Hamilton has picked up two offers from Rice and Tulsa. While he'll take over the reigns at quarterback after the departure of Oklahoma State bound athlete William Cole, he fits in as a slot receiver or cornerback at the next level.
Tulsa seems to be one school that Hamilton is impressed with, but hasn't yet pulled the trigger yet before the spring is finished.
"He really likes coach Todd Graham but he wanted to finish up spring football before he pulled the trigger on a commitment anywhere," McGuire said. "He's got a heck of a job following William Cole at quarterback and there is a lot of pressure there. But, he has a good attitude and presence about it. He's going to be his own person."
