DaeSean Hamilton has been thinking about the in-state schools, Virginia and Virginia Tech, quite a bit in the early stages of the recruiting process.
Hamilton has visited both schools and both coaching staffs have made the Stafford (Va.) Mountain View athlete a big priority.
A while back Hamilton was at Virginia and not too long ago he went to Blacksburg for the Hokies spring game which was, unfortunately, rained out.
"I believe that was my third time up there," Hamilton recalled. "I was there for the Miami game, an unofficial visit and then the spring game."
The 6-foot, 182-pound athlete said there's a lot to like about the Hokies.
"I like the game day atmosphere because a whole bunch of fans come out. I like the coaching staff. They've offered me. I've got a good relationship with Coach Foster and the players there are nice. I got along with their recruits well, too. The academics are great. It's one of the top schools in the ACC."
Many assume UVa and Tech are the front runners but Hamilton dismissed that idea.
He said he will take the next few weeks to start to visit other schools that have offered him.
