There is no question that four star running back Lynell Hamilton (6-0, 195, 4.41) from Stockton (Calif.) Edison is one of the best running backs in the Golden State and the entire nation.
Hamilton rushed for 1,048 yards and nine touchdowns while missing three games due to injury. He also had over 300 receiving yards while tacking on three more touchdowns through the air.
Hamilton has proved that he is the complete running back who can run, catch and block.
Case in point, Edison’s quarterback missed him more for his blocking than for his outstanding playmaking ability. That says it all regarding what a team player Hamilton is. He makes plays that register in the box score as well as plays like key blocks that don’t.
Hamilton is a selfless player who doesn’t care about stats; it’s all about the W’s.
Even though Edison had an outstanding record of 9-1 they were held out of the playoffs because of an investigation for recruitment. Many close to the situation feel this more of a case of envy.
Edison head coach Booker Guyton works very hard getting his young student athletes known to colleges and media a like. There is no mystery why whether Guyton is coaching at Edison or Stockton (Calif.) Brookside Christian his players go on to the next level and play in college.
Hamilton will be one of at least three players who go D-I off this year’s Edison team.
That Hamilton will go D-I is the understatement of the year, he has over 40 offers to his credit.
Hamilton has already visited Oregon back on October 17th when the Ducks played ASU and liked everything about the place. He also had a nice visit to Colorado on November 22nd and was hosted by Buffalo standout running back Bobby Purify.
Hamilton will visit Michigan this weekend on December 6th and has one more committed visit to Oklahoma but the date hasn’t been set.
The last visit will remain open at this time.
Hamilton was another top-flight player from the Golden State who was in the audience for the USC/Notre Dame game last Saturday (November 30th). He enjoyed it a lot and was in the locker room with the USC players.
“I liked the big crowd at the Coliseum and the USC team,” Hamilton said.
If Hamilton takes any visits to any of the California schools they will be unofficial ones.
