As Ramsey (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep made yet another memorable run to a state championship in Jersey this fall, it was led by a defense mostly led by underclassmen. One of these was defensive lineman Darius Hamilton, who is positioning himself as one of the top defensive line recruits in the country for the Class of 2012.
Hamilton, 6-foot-4 and 250 pounds, has taken his recruitment in stride, as he spent a majority of the fall concentrating on his junior season.
"Recruiting is going well," said Hamilton. "I'm still waiting to see what other offers I get when we send out my tape."

While he waits for more offers, he already has a substantial list to choose from.
"It's pretty much the same," said Hamilton. "Rutgers, Boston College, North Carolina, Maryland, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and whoever I already had before."
The fall did not give Hamilton any time to take any visits, but soon that will change.
"I can give you an answer about visits real soon," said Hamilton. "We're going to start setting that up in January."
Although he has yet to schedule any visits, he did mention that he would like to take a closer look at Pittsburgh, Georgia, Rutgers and Florida.
This fall, Hamilton further established himself as one of the top recruits in the Class of 2012, and helped lead Don Bosco Prep to another undefeated season.
"I feel like we accomplished some great things for a young class, especially with the help of our seniors," said Hamilton. "I'm really looking forward to next season."
Hamilton finished the 2010 season with 63 tackles and 13.5 sacks.
