Interest is heating up for Clifton (Va.) Centreville cornerback Darryl Hamilton. The 5-foot-8, 178-pounder still holds one scholarship, but believes other schools could offer soon.
"I've been in a lot of contact with North Carolina, NC State and of course Virginia," he said. "I went to Virginia at the beginning of July for camp and it was fun.
"I talked to the coaches and it's comfortable around there. I've been around it for awhile and there wasn't much different this time around. I just talked with the coaches and they were particularly interested to see how my leg was doing. They reminded me that I still have an offer from them."
In regards to the leg, Hamilton hurt his hamstring earlier this summer.
"We had a passing camp and that's when I hurt it," he said. "I'm in rehab right now and it's about 85% back. I should be good to go a couple weeks into two-a-days and be able to play at full speed in our first game."
Meanwhile, two other schools are very high on Hamilton's list, North Carolina and NC State.
"Neither of them has offered yet, but NC State has said after the first three games they'll decide," he said. "North Carolina has said the same kind of thing after they come and see me."
What interests Hamilton about the two Carolina schools?
"I like being in North Carolina," he said. "It's a great atmosphere and the weather is nice. I used to go there all the time.
"I also like the coaches down there and what Tom O'Brien is bringing from Boston College. The North Carolina coaches are really genuine. I really like them too."
A couple other schools including Syracuse and Notre Dame continue to stay in contact with the cornerback too.
Recruiting is currently taking a backseat to football for Hamilton.
"The main thing now for me is getting ready for the season and trying to have a big year," he said. "Midway through the season I'll talk to my parents and start to play out official visits. I don't know if I'll take all five, but I think I'll at least go on three and then narrow my choices to two at the end of the season."
